• Whether or not the drug has an active metabolite
• Other useful information such as whether the drug should be avoided in renal impairment, if the drug is nephrotoxic and even more
If you know your patients creatinine clearance you enter that information or you use the built-in creatinine clearance (Cockcroft-Gault) calculator.
