Anyone who is taking a diuretic and a renin-angiotensin system (RSA) inhibitor for high blood pressure should be cautious about also taking ibuprofen, according to new research.

Diuretics and RSA inhibitors are commonly prescribed together for people with hypertension and are available under various pharmaceutical brand names. Painkillers such as ibuprofen are available over-the-counter in most pharmacies and stores in popular brands.

Researchers at the University of Waterloo used computer-simulated drug trials to model the interactions of the three drugs and the impact on the kidney. They found that in people with certain medical profiles, the combination can cause acute kidney injury, which in some cases can be permanent.

I'm not worried in the least about any of this since when I was sick with the meningitis my kidneys shut down for a month. I am on the diuretic now for that reason. Coffee is a diuretic also and it adds weight.

If you have ever driven trucks, it isn't lemonade in those pop bottles. LOL
