Is Methadone Safe To Take If You Have CKD

2013-07-31 17:36

Is Methadone Safe To Take If You Have CKDIs methadone safe to take if you have CKD? Methadone is a opioid pain reliever and has been proven to be extremely helpful for relieving moderate to serious pain. Pain is a common complain among CKD patients, so many of them wonder if it is safe to take methadone with kidney problem.

Methadone is helpful for reducing sufferings, but it may not be safe for some people who have certain medical conditions like asthma, lung disease, heart problem, low blood pressure, severe abdominal pain, addison’s disease and so on. However for CKD patients, although it is reported that methadone causes no adverse effects on the kidney, it is necessary for them to tell their healthcare provider before taking this medicine, as improper usage of this problem will cause some unnecessary health problems.

Besides, methadone cause no adverse effects on kidney, but it does not mean all the CKD patients can take this medicine. CKD is marked by progressive loss of kidney function which can elevate blood pressure. Long-term high blood pressure worsens kidney condition and accelerates illness progression to kidney failure stage, so many CKD patients are prescribed with hypotensive drugs to control their blood pressure. For these patients, if they take methadone, their blood pressure will decrease quickly and this may cause coma. For this reason, it is necessary for CKD patients who are taking hypotensive drugs to pay extra attention to methadone.

Lastly, although some CKD patients are allowed to take methadone, they should be alert about other pain-killers as some of them are nephrotoxic. (For more detailed information about pain-killer and CKD, please leave message to kidneyfailuretreat@hotmail.com)
