Helping your Young Teen Transition to a Healthy Adult

Now your son or daughter is entering their early teen years, a time that can be challenging for parents and teenagers, even for those without special dietary and medication needs. We are here to help ease this transition time through the NITYR Patient Support Program. If ever you have a question or concern use our patient support program to access the best possible advice or guidance.

Although your child has taken the same nitisinone (NTBC) medication for years, NITYR may be a more convenient formulation. NITYR (nitisinone) tablets are small1 (baby asprin sized), tasteless and are bioequivalent2 to Orfadin* (nitisinone) capsules. This means NITYR is clinically proven to have the same efficacy, safety and side effects, but may offer patients and their families greater convenience and a price advantage. A $0 co-pay is also available to eligible commercially insured patients3.

Your teenager is going to want to spend more time at after school activities or with friends, so a new option like NITYR, that does not require refrigeration4 or being taken with a meal may make sense. NITYR may bring greater peace of mind for you and offer your child a discreet way to take their medication around their friends. All they’ll need is a drink of water.

What I like about NITYR is it’s a really small tablet,” says Carrie. “It comes in the size of baby aspirin, and it can be taken with or without food any time of day. It doesn’t need to be refrigerated.

After carefully controlling your teen’s diet, medication and medical appointments, it can be difficult to transfer some responsibility to your child to start controlling their condition on their own. But don’t worry, we are here for you.
