My creatinine level is 2.18 and eGFR is 30. These numbers definitely put me into kidney disease. I also have gout. Can I take Uloric without further damaging my kidneys?
Uloric may be prescribed in patients with mild or moderate renal impairment (Clcr 30-89 mL per min). The recommended starting dose of Uloric is 40 mg once daily. For patients who do not achieve a sUA less than 6 mg per dL after 2 weeks with 40 mg, Uloric 80 mg is recommended.
