The advice on dosing in renal impairment linked from this page has mainly been taken from the Renal Drug Handbook 3rd edition. Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy and that the best information available has been used. This does not diminish the requirement to exercise clinical judgement, and neither the publishers nor the original authors can accept any responsibility for their use in practice.
The information contained has been compiled from a wide range of sources and from the clinical experience of the editorial board of the UK Renal Pharmacy Group, all of whom are involved in the pharmaceutical care of renally-impaired patients. As such, some of the information contained in the monographs may not be in accordance with the licensed indications or use of the drug.
