Use in Patient with Renal Impairment
Since very little unchanged drug is excreted via the kidneys, dose modification in patients with renal insufficiency is not needed. Therefore, on repeated administration, the dosing frequency of domperidone should be reduced to once or twice daily depending on the severity of the impairment, and the dose may need to be reduced. Such patients on prolonged therapy should be reviewed regularly.
