Talk to your doctor about dosing for CRYSVITA

Your doctor may discuss the following:

  • When starting CRYSVITA, the recommended dose is once every 4 weeks
  • The dosage (the amount of CRYSVITA you take) is based on body weight and will be determined by your doctor. In some cases, this may require more than 1 injection
  • After initial treatment, your doctor may have to adjust your dose

Discontinue oral phosphate and/or active vitamin D analogs (eg, calcitriol, paricalcitol, doxercalciferol, calcifediol) 1 week prior to initiation of treatment.

If you miss a dose, be sure to receive your next CRYSVITA dose as soon as possible. To avoid missed doses, CRYSVITA may be given up to 3 days before or after the scheduled treatment date.

What is CRYSVITA?

CRYSVITA is a prescription medicine used to treat adults and children 6 months of age and older with X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH).

Important Safety Information

You should not take CRYSVITA if:

  • You take an oral phosphate supplement and/or a specific form of vitamin D supplement (such as calcitriol, paricalcitol, doxercalciferol, calcifediol).
  • Your phosphorus levels from a blood sample are within or above the normal range for age.
  • You have kidney problems.

What is the most important information you should know about CRYSVITA?

  • Some patients developed allergic reactions (e.g., rash and hives) while taking CRYSVITA. Your doctor will monitor you for symptoms of an allergic reaction while you are taking CRYSVITA. Your treatment may need to be discontinued for serious allergic reactions.
  • High levels of phosphorus in the blood have been reported in some patients taking CRYSVITA. This may be related to a risk of high calcium levels in the kidneys. Your doctor will collect blood samples to monitor your levels. If you are already taking CRYSVITA, dose interruption and/or dose reduction may be required based on your serum phosphorus levels.
  • Administration of CRYSVITA may result in reactions at the injection site, such as hives, reddening of the skin, rash, swelling, bruising, pain, severe itching of the skin, and collection of blood outside of a blood vessel (i.e., hematoma). Call your doctor if you develop an injection site reaction. CRYSVITA may be discontinued if severe injection site reactions occur.
