Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. Ranitidine has small influence on creatinine secretion and it can be used safely in most mild renal disorders. Ranitidine is metabolised through kidneys and tehre may be slower excretion of it in patient with renal failure. So the drug is generally well-tolerated,but the daily dosage should initially be reduced in patients with moderate to severe renal impairment. I suggest to use ranitidine 75mg.If isnt helpful you can increase dosage gradually and control creatinine frequently. WIsh you good health. Regards
