  • Severe renal dysfunction (CrCl 15 to less than 30 mL/min): Data not available

Liver Dose Adjustments

  • Moderate liver dysfunction (total bilirubin greater than 1.5 to 3 × ULN with any AST): 75 mg orally once a day for 21 days on 7 days off of a 28-day cycle

Dose Adjustments

Dose Reduction for Adverse Reactions:

  • First dose reduction: 100 orally once a day
  • Second dose reduction: 75 mg orally once a day
  • Third dose reduction: 50 mg orally once a day

Dose Modification for Adverse Reactions:
Retinal Pigment Epithelial Detachment (RPED):
  • Continue treatment at the current dose and continue periodic ophthalmic evaluation.
  • If resolved within 14 days, continue treatment at the current dose.
  • If unresolved within 14 days, withhold treatment until resolved; then resume at previous dose or at a lower dose.

Hyperphosphatemia:
If serum phosphate greater than 5.5 to 7.5 or less mg/dL:
  • Continue treatment at the current dose and start or adjust the phosphate binder dose according to clinical practice.
  • Monitor serum phosphate weekly.
  • Phosphate binder dosing should be held during the week off therapy each cycle (Days 22-28) and during dose interruptions for non-hyperphosphatemia adverse events.
  • If serum phosphate greater than 7.5 mg/dL or single phosphate greater than 9 mg/dL independent of duration of dose of the phosphate lowering therapy:
  • Withhold treatment until level returns to serum phosphate of 5.5 mg/dL or less.
  • If serum phosphate greater than 7.5 mg/dL occurred for less than 7 days: Restart treatment at the same dose with maximal phosphate binder dosing.
  • If serum phosphate greater than 7.5 mg/dL for greater than 7 days or if patient had a one-time serum phosphate of greater than 9 mg/dL: Resume treatment at the next lower dose level with maximal phosphate binder dosing.
  • Serum phosphate with life-threatening consequences; urgent intervention indicated (e.g., dialysis): Permanently discontinue treatment.

Other Adverse Reactions:
  • Grade 3: Withhold dose until resolved to Grade 1 or less, then resume at the next lower dose level. If not resolved within 14 days or less, permanently discontinue treatment.
  • Grade 4: Permanently discontinue treatment.

Dosage Modification for Concomitant Use of Gastric Acid Reducing Agents:
  • It is recommended to avoid the coadministration of a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), a histamine-2 (H2) receptor antagonist, or a locally-acting antacid.
  • If H2-antagonist coadministration cannot be avoided it is recommended to separate the administration of this drug by 2 hours before or 10 hours after.
  • If locally-acting antacid coadministration cannot be avoided it is recommended to separate the administration of this drug by 2 hours before or 2 hours after.
