Question
I want to start remeron but my kidney function is moderate.know remeron doseageis based on creatinine clearance.my creatinine clearance is 52 is remeron ok based on mt creatinine clearance of 52

Answer
Hi Frank,
The manufacturer does not provide dosage adjustment guidelines for lower kidney function. Clearance of the drug is decreased with lower kidney function. I would recommend starting with a lower dose.
Thank you for using Allexperts.
