If I need pain medicines, what can I do to keep my kidneys healthy?
Kidney disease caused by pain relievers is often preventable. Here are some things you can do to help keep your kidneys healthy.

How you take these medicines makes a difference:
Make sure you read the warning label before using any over–the–counter analgesics.

Do not use over–the–counter pain relievers more than 10 days for pain or more than three days for fever. If you have pain or fever for a longer time, you should see your doctor.

Avoid using pain medicines that contain a combination of ingredients, like aspirin, acetaminophen and caffeine mixed together in one pill.

If you are taking pain medicines, increase the amount of fluid you drink to six to eight glasses a day.

If you are taking pain medicines, avoid drinking alcohol

But even the best of these years are filled with pain and trouble;soon they disappear, and we are gone."(Psalms 90:10)
