- With Impaired Renal Function: Since absorbed benzydamine and its metabolites are excreted in the urine, the possibility of systemic effects should be considered in patients with severe renal impairment.
- With Impaired Liver Function: Since absorbed benzydamine is highly metabolized in the liver the possibility of systemic effects should be considered in patients with severe hepatic impairment. Pholcodine is metabolized in the liver and its action may be prolonged in hepatic insufficiency.
