Top Ten Drugs That Cause Kidney Damage: Please Share For Information
Medicines or as people also call them drugs, can cause numerous different side-effects on and inside the human body. They particularly cause damage to the kidneys, which are a part of the group of the most important organs in our body. The list of these drugs is extremely long, but there, we’re presenting you the top 10 of them that cause the greatest damage. They include antibiotics, analgesics etc.

Top ten drugs that cause kidney damage:

1. Antibiotics that include ciprofloxacin, methicillin, vancomycin, sulfonamides.

2. Analgesics, including acetaminophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID): aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and others available only by prescription.

3. COX-2 inhibitors, including celecoxib (brand name Celebrex). Two drugs in this class have already been withdrawn from the market because of cardiovascular toxicity: rofecoxib (brand name Vioxx), and valdecoxib (brand name Bextra). These drugs are a special class of NSAID and were developed to be safer for the stomach, but have the same risk as other NSAIDs do for kidney damage.

4. Heartburn drugs of the proton pump inhibitor class. They include omeprazole (brand name Prilosec), lansoprazole (brand name Prevacid), pantoprazole (brand name Protonix), rabeprazol (brand names Rabecid, Aciphex), esomeprazole (brand names Nexium, Esotrex).

    Usually when I hear of an overdose I think of someone taking more medication than they needed on purpose more less . The average person don’t realize how toxic prescription drug are, they are made in a lab and we are not taught to fear them like we fear illegal drugs. Like a person taking Tylenol for let’s say a toothache, they could easily take too much. If the liver can get toxic at 3,000 mg and a person is taking 2 ‘500 mg’ tablet’ every 4/hrs. then 3 doses would be the cut off…. but so many people don’t realize this.
