Can I take Aceon if I have a history of kidney disease?

The high blood pressure medication Aceon (perindopril) is not recommended if your creatinine clearance (a test to determine kidney function) is less than 30 milliliters per minute (mL/min).

Make sure your doctor knows about any kidney condition you have before you begin taking Aceon. Based on the details of your condition, your doctor will decide whether Aceon is safe for you to take, and at what dose, and he or she will monitor you regularly. Take the medication exactly as prescribed and alert your doctor if you experience any side effects.
