Since I work for this site, I subscribe to a professional database that lets me look up pills according to their imprint, that way I can help those seeking medication information or IDs and ensure that they get accurate and up to date information! ## in addition to the...

Ask The Dr

Does the drug benedectin cause kidney disease ## Hi Bethany, I haven't come across any information in the way of kidney disease, but a list of side effects on one of Bendectin's active ingredients "Doxylamine", goes on to show that 'difficulty urinating' is a serious adverse effect that should be reported to your doctor immediately.
