Administering NITYR to infants

NITYR tablets are tasteless and come in very small¹ and convenient 2 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg tablets. These tablets can be converted to a suspension for administration to a younger child unable to swallow tablets via oral syringe, or they can be crushed and added to applesauce. The suspension can be stored at room temperature for 24 hours before use. The following instructions will help your patients learn the process of administering NITYR tablets to their child:

Administration using an oral syringe

Greater convenience in mind

Preparing a suspension of NITYR requires less than 1 minute of active preparation and administration time, and can be prepared on the go. This diagram will help you explain the process to your patients.

Administration using Applesauce

  1. Crush one NITYR tablet using two spoons (a tablet crusher is available from the NITYR Patient Support Program for free).

  2. Add all the crushed tablet powder to one full teaspoon of applesauce in a clean glass or bowl.

  3. If giving more than one tablet, repeat the process above, adding the powder to the same applesauce.

  4. Mix well in a bowl or glass.

  5. Feed the mixture to the child using a teaspoon.

  6. To make sure you give the child all the medicine, add another full teaspoon of applesauce to the same glass or bowl and stir. Again, feed the mixture to the child.

  7. Use the NITYR-applesauce mixture within 2 hours of preparation.

For more information on administering NITYR using an oral syringe, or with applesauce see the full instructions for use or or refer to the prescribing information.

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.
