Daxas may need to be taken for several weeks to achieve its effect. Daxas has been studied in clinical trials for up to one year.
Special populations: Elderly (65 years and older): No dose adjustment is necessary.
Renal impairment: No dose adjustment is necessary.
Hepatic impairment: The clinical data with Daxas in patients with mild hepatic impairment classified as Child-Pugh A are insufficient to recommend a dose adjustment and therefore Daxas should be used with caution in these patients.
Patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment classified as Child-Pugh B or C should not take Daxas.
Paediatric population: There is no relevant use of Daxas in the paediatric population (under 18 years).
Mode of Administration: For oral use. The tablet should be swallowed with water and taken at the same time every day. The tablet can be taken with or without food.
