Low dose dopamine

In conclusion, even though low-dose dopamine may facilitate urine output and natriuresis, the overall benefit of this effect in renal protection (prevention of a rise in the serum creatinine) is not established. Furthermore, there is no conclusive evidence to support using dopamine for the treatment or stabilization of acute renal failure. Moreover, even low-dose dopamine use can be associated with serious side effects. Therefore, based on the data presented here, we believe that it is a myth to consider low-dose dopamine use as a therapeutic option in the prevention or treatment of acute renal failure.
