dose of Pepcid needs to be reduced even in patients with MODERATE renal impairment

Not enough people realize that the dose of Pepcid needs to be reduced even in patients with MODERATE renal impairment.

Pepcid is excreted renally. A lower dose is already recommended for SEVERE renal insufficiency...creatinine clearance < 10 mL/min.

Now Merck also recommends lowering the dose for patients with MODERATE renal insufficiency...creatinine clearance < 50 mL/min.
