Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 days ago):
I just had two kidney stones, one in the ureter smashed with laser and one in the kidney taken care of by lithotripsy. I am wondering if Zonegran could be the cause.
From this study (1 week ago):
Patient had a large kidneystone in (r)kidney for 10 years that was too large to dissolve but it didn't move. Suddenly after checking for reasons for back to back uti,s, 2 more stones have appeared and function is down to 12%. has Lisinopril had anything to do with the kidney dysfunction or the quick formation of other stones because of the low function?
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I recently (3 Months ago) was hospitalized with Pneumonia. This is the 4th time in the last 8 years. I came in contact with a child that had influenza.
