Elevated Blood Creatinine level
I have been diagnosed with BPH (increased Prostate) along with kidney stones. The Creatinine level had reached 1.24 and GFR 67. I was prescribed alpha blocker which caused me to almost faint on the first day as my BP stays on the lower side. I have two questions to ask: 1.Minimal dosage for the alpha blocker to avoid side effects like dizziness and fainting ? 2. Can there be substantial increase in blood creatinine level due to stones and BPH n does it normally correct afterwards.

U can change the alpha blocker... Newer drugs like sildosin have very minimal effect on blood pressure.. practically zero effect... Serum creatinine values usually not effected by b p h unless you have a significant urinary obstruction...
