Thanks for the query

Chronic kidney disease patients will have uremia which itself causes a lot of itching, I hope it is clear that it is indeed the medicines which is causing the itching and not the uremia itself. There are two options for her
1. de sensitise the essential drugs by initially giving controlled smaller dosages of the drugs initially
2. to treat under the cover of steroids

I hope I was of help
