Mild hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh A) or moderate-to-severe renal impairment (CrCl 15–49mL/min): 1.1mg/m² on Days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle.

Monitor for peripheral neuropathy; withhold dose if grade 3 or 4 peripheral neuropathy develops until resolution to grade 2 or less. Congenital long QT syndrome: avoid. CHF, bradyarrhythmias, electrolyte abnormalities: monitor ECG for prolonged QT interval. Correct electrolyte abnormalities (K+, Mg+) before treatment; monitor.
