Steroids

Steroids such as prednisone are the most common used drugs for kidney patients to suppress kidney inflammation and reduce protein leakage.

Besides, you may have vomit, nausea, poor appetite, even coma. Generally speaking, steroids should be reduced gradually when your symptoms are under control.

Antihypertensive drugs

High blood pressure is the leading cause of kidney disease. And kidney disease can also raise your blood pressure further. In order to normalize blood pressure, patients should take antihypertensive drugs, such as ACEI and ARBs. If you stop those medications suddenly, blood pressure will increase in short time so as to cause cerebral hemorrhage easily.
