Can People With Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Take AmoxicillinPolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disorder. With the growth of kidney cysts, many symptoms may occur, for example, back pain, flank pain, headache, high blood pressure, urinary tract infection, etc. In order to relieve those discomforts, PKD patients may want to take amoxicillin. However, is amoxicillin safe for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients?

Amoxicillin use

Amoxicillin, as an antibiotic, is usually used to treat various infections caused by bacteria, including gonorrhea, ear/nose/throat infections, skin infections, respiratory infection, urinary tract infections (UTIs), etc.

While helpful, amoxicillin may cause damage on your body.

Amoxicillin side effects

● Asthma

● Food or drug allergies: Allergic reactions occur, especially to a cephalosporin antibiotic such as Omnicef, Cefzil, Ceftin, Keflex, and others.

● Diarrhea: This may be a sign of a new infection. If you have diarrhea that is watery or bloody, stop taking amoxicillin and call your doctor. Do not use anti-diarrhea medicine unless your doctor tells you to.

● Kidney damage: Long-term usage of aspirin can cause interstitial nephritis, renal papillary necrosis and the decline of kidney function. Aside from this, a lot of potassium leaks from renal tubules, leading to high potassium and uric acid level in urine.

That’s why you are told to tell your doctor whether you have a liver or kidney disease history before you take this medicine.

This kind of medicines that can cause kidney damage are called “Nephrotoxic Medicines”. You should avoid taking them. But how can you solve your problems? Here, I recommend you to take a natural treatment—Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy.
