Dose Adjustment for Renal Impairment
Significantly increased drug exposures occurred when tenofovir disoproxil fumarate was administered to patients with moderate to severe renal impairment. The dosing interval of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate should be adjusted in patients with baseline creatinine clearance <50 mL/min using the recommendations in Table 2 . The safety and effectiveness of these dosing interval adjustment recommendations have not been clinically evaluated; therefore, clinical response to treatment and renal function should be closely monitored in these patients.

No dose adjustment is necessary for patients with mild renal impairment (creatinine clearance 50–80 mL/min). Routine monitoring of calculated creatinine clearance and serum phosphorus should be performed in patients with mild renal impairment

1.Calculated using ideal (lean) body weight.

The pharmacokinetics of tenofovir have not been evaluated in non-hemodialysis patients with creatinine clearance <10 mL/min; therefore, no dosing recommendation is available for these patients.
