CARNILIS R lnjection-
ESRD Patients on Hemodialysis
The recommended starting dose is 10-20 mg/kg dry body weight as a slow 2-3 minute bolus injection into the venous return line after each dialysis session. Initiation of therapy may be prompted by trough (pre-dialysis) plasma levocarnitine concentrations that are below normal (40-50 µmol/L). Dose adjustments should be guided by trough (pre-dialysis) levocarnitine concentrations, and downward dose adjustments ( e.g. to 5 mg/kg after dialysis) may be made as early as the third or fourth week of therapy.
CARNILISR injection is available in 1×5 ml ampoule
