Answer

Some medications (eg, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs [NSAIDs]) and radiocontrast agents are contraindicated in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) because of the risk of deterioration of kidney function. Dose modification is required for a wide variety of drugs belonging to different categories.
