Renal Impairment. Adjustments to the starting dose are recommended to provide appropriate drug exposure in patients with creatinine clearance mL/min, as estimated by the Cockroft-Gault equations. These adjustments are based on a pharmacokinetic study in patients with renal impairment.6/   Introduction. Patients requiring antibiotic therapy often have some degree of renal impairment. Since many commonly used antibiotics are primarily cleared by the kidneys, it is often necessary to alter the dosing schedule in patients with impaired renal function. 1,2 Historically, the approach to identifying renal dosage adjustments has focused on achieving concentration–time Cited by:

This guideline provides dose adjustments for adults based upon the degree of renal impairment or the need for hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.

Recommendations for dose modifications are not limited to adjustments based on declining renal function. Medication dose adjustments should be made as renal functions improves, including adjusting.

Dose adjustment may not be appropriate in ACUTE renal impairment secondary to SEPSIS. In this case it is important to treat the infection aggressively for the first 24hrs and re-check renal function before reducing the dose accordingly. Dosage adjustment should be guided by clinical judgement and monitoring, in addition to published guidance which may be based on older studies in CKD patients or patients on RRT(8).
