JAVYGTOR Tablets for Oral Use and JAVYGTOR Powder for Oral Solution

What Important Information Should I Know About JAVYGTOR Tablets for Oral Use and Powder for Oral Solution?

  • Sapropterin Dihydrochloride can cause serious side effects including:

Severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis – JAVYGTOR is not recommended in patients with a history of anaphylaxis to Sapropterin Dihydrochloride. Stop taking JAVYGTOR and get medical help right away if you develop any of these symptoms of severe allergic reaction:

  • Wheezing or trouble breathing
  • Coughing
  • Flushing
  • Nausea
  • Feeling lightheaded or you faint
  • Rash

Inflammation of the lining of the stomach (gastritis) or esophagus (esophagitis) – Gastritis or esophagitis can happen with Sapropterin Dihydrochloride and may be severe. Patients should be monitored by their doctor for signs and symptoms of upper gastrointestinal mucosal inflammation. Call your doctor right away if you have any of these signs or symptoms:

  • Severe upper stomach area (abdominal) discomfort or pain, nausea and vomiting
  • Blood in your vomit or stool
  • Black, tarry stool
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Loss of appetite
  • Pain in the throat

Phenylalanine (Phe) levels that are too low – Some PKU patients have experienced low blood Phe during treatment. Some children under the age of 7 years who take high doses of Sapropterin Dihydrochloride each day may experience low Phe levels

Too much or constant activity (hyperactivity) can happen with Sapropterin Dihydrochloride – Tell your doctor if you have any signs of hyperactivity, including:

  • Fidgeting or moving around too much
  • Talking too much
  • It is not possible to know if Sapropterin Dihydrochloride will work for you until you start treatment. Your doctor will check your blood Phe levels when you start taking JAVYGTOR to see if the medicine is working
  • All patients with PKU who are being treated with JAVYGTOR should also be treated with a Phe-restricted diet, including dietary protein and Phe restriction
  • Your doctor should continue to monitor your blood Phe levels often during your treatment with JAVYGTOR to make sure that your blood Phe levels are not too high or too low. Frequent blood monitoring is recommended in the pediatric population
  • Avoid any dietary changes which may affect your blood Phe level. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully and do not make any changes to your dietary Phe intake without first talking with your doctor. Even if you take JAVYGTOR and your Phe blood levels are not well controlled, you can develop severe neurologic problems
  • Tell your doctor as soon as possible if you are sick or have fever as this may increase your blood Phe level
  • Take JAVYGTOR exactly as your doctor tells you to
  • Do not take 2 doses in a day. If you take too much JAVYGTOR, call your doctor for advice or seek medical attention
