Adults

Now that you’re an adult, you’re free to make your own choices. And maybe it’s time to consider switching to a new medication for HT-1.

NITYR (nitisinone) tablets are bioequivalent1 to Orfadin* (nitisinone) capsules. This means NITYR is clinically proven to have the same efficacy, safety and side effects as your current nitisinone (NTBC) medication, but may offer you and your family greater convenience and a price advantage. A $0 co-pay for eligible commercially insured patients is also available2.

As a typical adult, you’re probably on the go between home, work, college classes and all your new responsibilities. With NITYR, there is no longer a need to refrigerate your nitisinone3 or remember to take your medication with a meal. It’s a new medication that may give you more options.

What I like about NITYR is it’s a really small4 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.

For a family that’s unsure about switching to NITYR, I think I simply would say just give it a try. There is nothing to lose, you have everything to gain,” says Mike. “I think it’s important for caregivers to be open to innovation, because we are such a small community that we don’t always get the attention as some other conditions.
