    Use in lactation: It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. So, if therapy is considered essential, alternative feeding arrangement should be made.

    Use in elderly patients: Elderly patients are more likely to have decreased renal function. Thus care should be taken in dose selection and it may be useful to monitor renal function. Moreover, it may be necessary to reduce the dosage in patients with impaired renal function.
