TAKHZYRO requires no reconstitution.1
The recommended starting dose is 300 mg every 2 weeks. TAKHZYRO every 4 weeks is also effective and may be considered if the patient is well-controlled (eg, attack free) for more than 6 months.1
Remind patients to always have acute treatment on hand and periodically check the date to ensure it hasn't expired.
*In clinical trials, the majority of patients self-administered TAKHZYRO within 10 to 60 seconds.
