Telavancin may increase the risk of nephrotoxicity in patients predisposed to kidney dysfunction (preexisting renal disease, diabetes mellitus, congestive heart failure, or hypertension) and in those taking medications known to affect kidney function. It is recommended to monitor renal function (i.e., serum creatinine, creatinine clearance) prior to initiation of therapy, during treatment, and at the end of treatment in all patients receiving telavancin; and if renal function decreases, the benefit of continuing therapy versus discontinuing and initiating therapy with an alternative agent should be assessed.
