- V-fend orally possible cause of renal failur
My wife was on V-Fend for 10 months - aspergillosis. Gradually her creatinine start to rise which she then went to a Nephrologist. One day it went from 4 to 11 and I rushed her to the hospital where she went into acute renal failure requiring dialysis. I am a retired pharmacist and spoke with Pfizer who at that time denied the fact that the oral drug can cause renal failure. Yet all the doctors and I agree - Vfend was the cause since she was on all the meds she was on for many, many years without any problems. When V-fend was given, the problems start slowly but then accelerated so fast that taking her off the drug didn't help.
