Dosage Adjustment for Patients With Moderate to Severe Renal Insufficiency—The dose for patients with renal dysfunction should be reduced as follows:

Active Duodenal Ulcer, GERD, and Benign Gastric Ulcer

Ccr Dose

20 – 50 mL/min

<20 mL/min

150 mg daily

150 mg every other day

Maintenance Therapy
Ccr Dose

20 – 50 mL/min

<20 mL/min

150 mg every other day

150 mg every 3 days

Some elderly patients may have creatinine clearances of less than 50 mL/min, and, based on pharmacokinetic data in patients with renal impairment, the dose for such patients should be reduced accordingly. The clinical effects of this dosage reduction in patients with renal failure have not been evaluated.
