    I was also give mucomyst per os to prevent kidney damage due to the need to use lasix as a diuretic causing me to have an elevated creatinine...attempts to wean me from the lasix resulted in my lungs filling andhaving then to be diuresed with IV Lasix. The mucomyst was given by mouth in Juice three times a day. Bun and Creatinine went from elevated to normal.
