Elderly: No special dose adjustment is recommended. However, experience of the use of CORTIMENT in the elderly is limited.
Hepatic and renal impairment population: CORTIMENT 9 mg was not studied in patients with hepatic and renal impairment, therefore caution should be exercised in the administration and monitoring of the product in these patients.
