What I like about NITYR is it’s a really small1 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 refrigerated2. My son was really excited to be able to swallow the medication,” says Carrie. “He shows everyone that comes over how big he is, when he gets to take his medication with water. He asks for a crowd! He’s really proud of himself. He feels like a big boy, really independent.

NITYR is formulated aiming for convenience. Children as young as three years old may be able to swallow NITYR, but for those infants unable to swallow a tablet, NITYR can be used to create a tasteless suspension. The suspension can be administered via oral syringe and is a simple and clean process, which might make your life easier. The tablets can be easily disintegrated in an oral syringe and the preparation can be kept in the syringe for up to 24 hours, giving you plenty of time to decide when is the right time to give the medication to your child.
NITYR is also stable at room temperature between 68° to 77°F (20° to 25°C), allowing for excursions between 59° and 86°F (15° and 30°C), freeing you up from having to refrigerate the medication and reducing the chance of toxic impurities forming. It has a shelf life of 36 months (3 years). To help families facing dietary restrictions every day, the new formulation can also be taken with or without food.
