My spouse vietnam vet w/ prophiria cutanea tarda , ptsd, and neuropathy has many meds he takes daily that are needed to prevent seizures, stomach problems, high blood pressure, pain-- had surgery for pd but if meds are removed during treatment, could have problems worse than kidey failure.
Hello. This is one to discuss with the doctor very carefully.
Be sure his full medications, supplements, vitamins are listed as well. You can also check the Interactions Checker in the blue menu line above to be sure his medicines are working well together. Bring a lis of questions. You can read about dialysis at the Mayo Clinic site under procedures, or another reputable group.
Nothing I'm reading says that meds are removed. Even with hemodialysis not all meds are removed. Drs are aware of dialysis and watch how the patients meds are responding. I've never seen dialysis cause a problem with meds.
