Comment from: Jerry S65-71on Treatment for less than 1 month Published: January 25

This medication was used in 1975 as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. I failed on gold salt shots and this was the next medication to try. It caused total kidney failure and I was hospitalized. I was told there was nothing they could do and sent me home. I was told my kidneys would regenerate on my own, or I will die. After a week or so of being miserable, and gaining weight from water retention(could not urinate)I finally got the urge to pee. And pee I did for almost an hour. It was clear not yellow. 45 minutes later another long urination. My kidneys recovered and IK've had no problems since.
