I have had a kidney transplant since 1996 and I feel that I am taking too many drugs.


I had Wegener's and my transplant was a donation from my brother and he was a "perfect match". Over the years, I have relocated several time so I am on my 3rd Nephrologist. My concern is the number of drugs that I take,and the side effects. Although my Kidney is still healthy (creatnine of 1.0 consistently), I now have; Type-2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Gout, and skeletal problems. All of which are side effects of my drugs. i am now 66, and feel that I am getting written off due to my age,and just being sustained. Where is the creativity in medicine today?

    For possible interactions, a pharmacist is always your best option. The data base has all possible interactions, and can be verifyed.
