Three Kinds of Drugs for Kidney Disease Can Not Be Stopped SuddenlyThe following three kinds of drugs for kidney disease can not be stopped suddenly, otherwise your kidney disease may get worse.

-Steroids

When you have massive proteinuria, steroids are often used. If they have been taken for a long time, the body stops producing its own steroid hormone. Suddenly stopping steroid treatment after it has been taken for a long time can then be dangerous, as the sudden shortage of steroid hormones causes an Addisonian crisis. Therefore steroid treatment is often reduced slwoly to allow the adrenal glands to recover.

-Anti-hypertensive drugs

For kidney patients who are taking anti-hypertensive drugs, if the drugs are stopped suddenly, blood pressure will increase. In severe case, it can cause acute renal failure, cardiovascular disease, etc.

Some renal patients may think that long-term anti-hypertensive drug intake have side effects, so they stop the medicine. In fact, the side effects are very little. But sudden medicine withdrawal can bring you more disadvantages than advantages.

In addition, the commonly used anti-hypertensive drugs such as ACEI and ARBs cannot only lower blood pressure, but also reduce proteinuria as well as protecting renal function. Once you stop them, you may have kidney failure quickly.

-Drugs for anemia

Anemia is a complication of CKD. And for kidney patients with anemia, they have to inject erythropoietin and take some other drugs for anemia, such as iron tablets, folic acid, vitamin B12, etc.

If you stop the referred drugs suddenly, you will have anemia, shortness of breath, weakness, or even anemic heart disease so as to speed up the progression of kidney failure.

However, some drugs can be stopped, such as adjuvant drugs, including jinshuibao, bailing capsule, shenyankang tablets, huangkui capsules, etc. When they are stopped, they do no obvious influence on your health. But you had better talk with your doctor if you want to stop.
