NITYR Three-Week Free Trial2
If you or your patients believe that NITYR may offer greater convenience then they can try NITYR for free. The NITYR Three-Week Free Trial will help your patients decide if NITYR is right for them.
NITYR is bioequivalent3 to Orfadin* which means that it has the same efficacy, safety and side effects as your patient's current nitisinone. During the Free Trial your patients will still receive their Orfadin medication as usual, and because NITYR is bioequivalent to Orfadin, patients can move back to Orfadin at any time during the Free Trial if they wish.
