Renal Aspects of Peptic Ulcer Pharmacology
Medications to treat peptic ulcer disease are used widely and may have adverse effects on renal function. Similarly, renal dysfunction may alter the pharmacokinetics of this diverse group of medications resulting in dosage adjustments. The older agents, antacids and sucralfate, allow absorption of cations (calcium, magnesium and aluminum) which may result in toxicity. Newer medications (H2 blockers and omeprazole) appear to have fewer side effects and be better tolerated with appropriate dosage adjustments.
