Children 6 to 12 years of age

Gaining independence. NITYR helps children transition seamlessly to tablets

Now that your child is a little older, he or she may be ready to start swallowing tablets whole. In fact, many children prefer baby aspirin-sized tablets over solutions and suspensions.1

This marks one of the first steps in giving your child a little more responsibility so they can begin controlling their condition for themselves.

NITYR Tablets:

  • Are very small, easy to carry, and can be discreetly carried in a backpack2
  • Can be taken with an empty stomach or with your child’s meal, you choose
  • Can be taken once daily for patients 5 years of age and older which may provide additional flexibility to your day*

Of course, if you and your child feel more comfortable, you can use the medication to create a suspension or mix with applesauce.

*For patients 5 years of age and older who have undetectable serum and urine succinylacetone concentrations after a minimum of 4 weeks on a stable dosage of nitisinone. Ask your healthcare provider for more information about taking NITYR once per day.
