So, don't take Clofibrate if you have renal disease. ...Read more

Metabolism: Atracurium is a non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocker. It is metabolized via a process called Hoffmann elimination (ester hydrolysis which is independent of renal, hepatic or enzymatic function). Since you don't need the liver or kidney to metabolize the drug, it is a paralytic often used for patients with renal and/or hepatic failure. ...Read more
