Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi Mrs XXXXXXX Agrawal, Thank you for posting your query regarding your husband. I have noted the list of medicines prescribed for your husband's cervical spondylosis. These are all safe medications and have no adverse effects on kidney or elsewhere in the body. However, I doubt whether he needs all these medications. Hifenac P is a pain-killer and can be taken, as and when is severe. Pantodac is for acidity and can be taken once in the morning, instead of two times. Gabaneuron is a good medicine and can be continued as advised. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
