Fortunately, I am on no medical or dietary regimen beyond common sense and minding to avoid potentially damaging therapies.

My renal man is very thorough in his analysis of my medical regimen to the point that any medications for other things are analyzed through that lens of renal neutrality.

good to see you here..
I  have that ongoing stage 3 that has been with me a few years now and then, i have had oncocytomas removed from each kidney.
Last hospital stay i had some ArF and was infected and they put me on IV antibiotics, switched to oral antibiotics, and then the creatinine and BUN /creatinine went back to where they usually are for me.

I would like to know more about how Tylenol affects kidneys, since i can't take NSAIDS and don't want to abuse narcotics, and really have a lot of chronic pain from old back injuries/surgeries as well.

Obviously NSAIDS are a no go. I was told to only take Tylenol, so I'm guessing it's impact on your kidneys is little to none.

The problem is not so much the Tylenol as such, it is the excessive use of Tylenol from amazing overuse, most pain meds taken two at a time up to four times a day DO contain Tylenol at the rate of commonly 500mg per tablet, that plus the Tylenol that one takes according to the Tylenol bottle of about 500mg x 2 up to three times a day pretty soon adds up to an excessive amount of Tylenol for an ordinary citizen, not considering the ones out there with CKD or AKD.  Let's see, EIGHT pain pills with Tylenol at 500mg each PLUS six Tylenols a day at 500mg each equals an astounding 7,000 mg a DAY of this med.  Be careful and question EVERY med you take, RX or OTC with your practitioner.

Renal Dysfunction Risk

The National Kidney Foundation recommends acetaminophen as a first-line analgesic for episodic use in patients with underlying renal disease.4

NSAIDs may have adverse renal effects in patients with kidney dysfunction3,5

NSAIDs can affect both cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in the kidneys. In people with some compromise of renal blood flow, NSAID inhibition of COX-1 in afferent renal arterioles can result in reduced renal perfusion and inhibition of COX-2 can promote sodium and fluid retention.3,5

When taken at recommended doses, TYLENOL® does not compromise renal function in patients with existing kidney dysfunction.1-3

that is what i was told too, and i only take it by itself not in any compounds that include it.

I appreciated Bike's explanation in the posts below.
