Hi guys, I'm new to this kidney blog but have come on here as I am at a bit lost with it all. My EGFR is usually around the 40 mark with Creatinine around 160. Unfortunately I also have a couple of fractured vertebrae from my osteoporosis so I have recently been taking Amitriptylin for the pain. Now my Creatinine is 181 and EGFR is 33. Is it possible that the Amitriptylin could have caused the drop?
I've not actually been diagnosed with kidney disease but I guess I'm in trouble somehow. I'm seeing a Liver doctor every 6 weeks as I had that transplant around 9 months ago. They say is nothing to worry about and that it's just caused by my tacrolimus.
