UPTRAVI Dose Adjustment (Titration)
UPTRAVI dosing is unique to each patient based on how their body responds and adjusts to treatment. The Dose Adjustment Phase (titration) is how you find your patient’s personal dose.
If a dose of UPTRAVI is missed, patients should take the missed dose as soon as possible unless the next dose is within the next 6 hours
If treatment is missed for 3 days or more, restart UPTRAVI at a lower dose and then retitrate
*Once daily for patients with moderate hepatic impairment.
Tolerability may be improved when UPTRAVI is taken with food.
Remember, the goal is not to get to 1600 mcg, it’s to get to the personal dose for each patient.
After the dose adjustment phase
Once each patient reaches his or her personal dose, a single-tablet equivalent is prescribed BID.*
