Posted on Sat, 15 Jul 2017 in Headache and Migraines
Question: Started a few new meds for RA complicated by Valley Fever. 2 days now have had very
cloudy urine with no uti symptoms. Wondering if one of these is real hard on kidneys.
Nabumetone, linzess or lyrica.

Brief Answer:
The medications shouldn't be the cause.

Detailed Answer:
I read your question carefully and I understand your concern.

Considering at that list of medications and also after checking literature to make sure I have to say that none of them have any major effects on the kidneys.
So I believe the cause must be sought elsewhere, starting with a simple urine analysis. It is not uncommon in female patients for urinary infections not to produce any symptoms, so an infection is the first thing which needs to be excluded.

I remain at your disposal for other questions.

Taking Baclofen which is good with spasticity.
Taking gabapentin which is really good @ 900 mg/day, but started getting excessive fidgety, restless, tonguing and other stuff, so I cut it back but not out

Brief Answer:
Shouldn't be related either.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for the additional information. I

Baclofen may increase somewhat urinary frequency but shouldn't change urine color.
Gabapentin or Fluconazole do not have any effect on urination.

Let me know if I can further assist you.
