I have a transplanted kidney (going on one year now ) and have been prescribed this medication at a low rate of five mg once a day, I read that it is not advisable for people with poor kidney function but nothing on transplant. just need to know that I can keep this new kidney. thanks for your time.
I would reserve a question like that for a doctor. In theory you should have essentially normal kidney function but I have no idea about the interaction between statins and your anti rejection medication or how much statins can affect kidney function. With just one kidney a professional opinion is pretty much essential I would have thought.
