Many medicines can cause
acute kidney injury, also called acute renal failure. Examples include:
Be safe with medicines. Read and follow all instructions on the label. Make sure every doctor you see knows about all of the medicines, vitamins, or herbal supplements you take. This means anything you take with or without a prescription.
Other chemicals, such as insecticides, herbicides, and
ethylene glycol, can also cause acute kidney injury.
