Setting Proper Treatment Expectations

Help prepare your patients

HAE is a genetic and unpredictable lifelong disease, and it's important to set specific goals for therapy. Choosing effective prevention with TAKHZYRO means working with your patient to help prevent and reduce the severity of their HAE attacks—which can help them work toward their treatment goals.1,2

Give TAKHZYRO 2.5 months to reach steady state1

Encourage your patients to keep taking TAKHZYRO exactly as you prescribed. TAKHZYRO has a half-life of ~14 days, allowing it to be taken every 2 weeks. Because of this, it can take up to 6 doses (10 weeks) to reach steady state.

Take each dose as prescribed

TAKHZYRO continues to work as it is taken, so it is important to tell your patients to take each dose as prescribed. Remember to impress upon them to avoid skipping or missing doses.

Breakthrough attacks

It is normal for patients to experience breakthrough attacks.1,3

It is recommended that patients keep their on-demand medication on hand in case of a breakthrough attack.

Let your patient know that if a breakthrough attack happens, they should not be discouraged. They should keep taking TAKHZYRO as prescribed, and discuss their experience with you.1,3

Stay the course

Over time, your patient may begin to notice that their attacks are less severe or that they are using their on-demand treatment less. These are signs that TAKHZYRO is working.
