I am an 81 yr old white female with Sjögren’s syndrome but doing quite well. I feel good but have a creatinine serum of 1.02 and eGFR of 52. I take Lyrica and Cevimeline for my Sjogrens. Should I be concerned?

The dosage of some of your medication may have to be adjusted based on the decreased kidney function.  The dose of your medications should be based on your creatinine clearance, which is a measure of your kidney function.  I suggest that you discuss the dosage of your medications with your physician.
