I noticed in the past day or two that their was some discussion with Advil on an unrelated forum topic. For what it is worth I will give my experiences. It seems that almost all of the doctors will not allow thier patients with Kidney issues to take Advil or other related drugs. And we all know that sometimes Advil works best for relieving pains.
Three years ago I got Gout. It was very painful. My GP did not want me to take Advil. I called my Urologist and his answer was as long as I take only a limited amount and for only a limited amount of days it was OK. Last summer I fell and hurt my knee bad. My Orthopedic Surgeon did not want me to take Advil without talking to my Nephrologist (whom I had been seeing for over a year). Same Answer. You can take Advil in limited amounts for a limited amount of days.
I do not want to suggest that these answers are applicable to anyone else as each doctor I spoke with was familiar with my bloodwork and condition,
My only suggestion is that in limited circumstances where Advil may give relief that you speak with your Urologist or Nephrologist about limited use of Advil or related drugs.
