PRESCRIBING INFORMATION

Indications:

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/day (for adults); generally in patients with a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) < 25 mL/min.

Dosage:

Adults (70 kg body weight): 4 – 8 tablets 3 times a day during meals. Keamine are given as long as the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is < 25 mL/min and a diet with an intake of maximum 40 g protein/day is followed.

Usage:

Keamine is administered orally. Tablets should be swallowed whole and should not be crushed or chewed.

Hypercalcaemia, disturbed amino acid metabolism.

In case of hereditary phenylketonuria it has to be taken into account that Keamine contains phenylalanine.

Pregnancy and paediatric.

Hypercalcaemia may develop. In this case, it is recommended to decrease vitamin D intake. If the hypercalcaemia persists, reduce the dosage of Keamine as well as any other source of calcium.

Keamine should be taken during meals to allow proper absorption and metabolism into the corresponding amino acids. The serum calcium level should be monitored regularly.

Ensure the sufficient supply with calories for the patients.

Pregnancy and lactation.

Driving and using machine.
