Dosage in case of renal failure

Dosage should be adjusted to the status of renal function: up to a creatinine clearance of 20 ml per minute it is not necessary to change the dosage. However, clinical monitoring is recommended at the beginning of treatment until equilibration of blood levels (4 days on average).
