Dexketoprofen Rompharm 50mg/2ml solution for injection or concentrate for solution for infusion should not be used in patients with severe hepatic dysfunction (Child-Pugh score 10-15).

Renal dysfunction

The dosage should be reduced to 50mg total daily dose in patients with mildly impaired renal function (creatinine clearance 50-80ml /min).

Elderly

No dosage adjustment is generally necessary in elderly patients. However, because of the physiological decline in renal function in elderly patients a lower dose is recommended in case of mild renal function impairment: 50 mg / min).
