eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate; EMA, European Medicines Agency; FDA, Food and Drug Administration; GFR, glomerular filtration rate.

a Patients with liver failure should be started on 5 mg/day.
b Persistent.
c Warning of possible hypovolemia in patients older than 75 years.
d Although its pharmacokinetics are not affected by food, it should be taken before the first food intake of the day due to its potential ability to delay intestinal absorption of glucose.
e Precaution should be exercised before the dose is increased in patients older than 75 years.
* Approved by the FDA. The EMA recommends not starting this drug if GFR < 60, but if treatment has already started, the dose should be reduced to 10 mg/day.
** Approved by the FDA. The EMA recommends not starting this drug if GFR < 60.

*Approved by the FDA. The EMA recommends not starting this drug if GFR < 60, but if treatment has already started, the dose should be reduced to 10 mg/day.

**Approved by the FDA. The EMA recommends not starting this drug if GFR < 60.
