Special populations: Patients with renal impairment (see Contraindications, Precautions and Pharmacology: Pharmacokinetics under Actions): Viacoram is contraindicated in patients with severe renal impairment (Creatinine clearance below 30 ml/min) (see Contraindications).
In patients with moderate renal impairment (Creatinine clearance between 30 ml/min to 60 ml/min), the initial recommended dose of Viacoram is 3.5 mg/2.5 mg every other day. In patients whose blood pressure is not adequately controlled, the dose of Viacoram 3.5 mg/2.5 mg may be taken once daily. If necessary, the dose may be increased in patients insufficiently controlled.
