Regular use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can lead to kidney damage. Common NSAIDs include ibuprofen, Advil®, Motrin® and Aleve®. Avoid regular use of these medicines.
If you have questions about any of your medicines, ask your pharmacist.
It is helpful to have a family member or friend help you for a couple of days when you return from the hospital. If you have small children, you may want to make arrangements for their care for one to two weeks while you recover.
