2 weeks. No reconstitution is needed and it comes ready to use.
How do you remember to take TAKHZYRO?
JENNY: How do I remember to take TAKHZYRO®? I use my calendar app, and I set the event to occur every two weeks.
BOBBI: I use the calendar on my phone, and also my girls remind me when it’s time to give myself the injection.
KYLE: So this is a little bit of a weird one. I have a pet snake, and she is on my schedule with feeding and my medicine. So it’s an every-two-week thing saying, oh, I need to feed her so I need to take my medicine as well.
DYLAN: I generally have a reminder on my phone that will tell me when to take my medication or that it would be every other week, and when I wake up in the morning, I get a simple, little reminder to take my medication. And I take it, and I go about my day.
ANDREA: I remember to to take my TAKHZYRO by listing it on my calendar for every other Saturday between eating my French toast and my bacon.
MARSHA: I got a postcard in the mail that notified me about the text reminding program and it sounded really good, and I signed up right away. And they sent me a text and wanted to know the days of my injection and how often I needed them, and they started coming in right on time.
KEMMI: So I get a text alert the day before so that I make sure that I have my medicine ready and then another text the day of.
KELLY: I set alarms on my phone, and I’ve got it to where it presets. So every time that it’s time for my injection, it automatically goes off, and I have a calendar that I use for work that I see every day that I write it in too.
JUAN: I help my wife remember to take TAKHZYRO by using the calendar app on our phone. We set up a recurring event that repeats itself and reminds us that today is TAKHZYRO day.
