Prevention and therapy of damages due to faulty or deficient protein metabolism in chronic renal insufficiency in connection with limited protein in food of 40 g per day (for adults) and less; i.e. generally in patients with a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) below 25 ml/min.
Hypercalcemia, disturbed amino acid metabolism. In case of hereditary phenylketonurie it has to be taken into account that this product contains phenylalanine.
Precautions and Warnings
No experience has been made so far with the application in pregnancy and pediatrics. RALENTIRTM should be taken during meals to allow proper absorption and metabolism into the corresponding amino acids. The serum calcium level should be monitored regularly. An adequate supply of calories should be ensured.
Hypercalcemia may develop. In this case, it is recommended to decrease vitamin D intake. If the hypercalcaemia persists, reduce the dosage of RALENTIRTM as well as any other source of calcium.
Simultaneous administration of medicinal products that contain calcium (e.g.acetolyte) may trigger, or worsen, a pathological increase in the serum calcium level. As the uremic symptoms improve under therapy with RALENTIRTM tablets, the dose of aluminum hydroxide administered should be reduced, as appropriate. The patient should be monitored for reduced levels of serum phosphate.
In order not to interfere with absorption, an appropriate interval should be observed between administration of RALENTIRTM tablets and medicinal products which form poorly soluble compounds with calcium (e.g. tetracyclines, quinolones such as ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin, preparations that contain iron, fluoride and estramustin). An interval of at least 2 hours should be observed
between the intake of RALENTIRTM tablets and such preparations If administration of RALENTIRTM tablets leads to increased blood levels of calcium,the sensitivity to medicinal products which increase heart action (cardiac glycosides) and thus also the risk of cardiac arrhythmia is increased
Dosage and Administration
In general, unless prescribed otherwise, four to eight tablets are swallowed whole three times daily during meals. This dosage applies to adults (70 kg bodyweight) (1 tablet/5 kg body weight/day).
1. Do not use RALENTIRTM after expiry date
2. Keep out of the reach of children
3. Do not store above 25°C
4. Protect from moisture
