Gout Treatment

KRYSTEXXA has a different way of lowering uric acid levels, which is the key to stopping gout flares. In about 6 months, it can remove years of uric acid crystal buildup from your joints.

ORAL GOUT MEDICINES DON’T:

  • CONVERT URIC ACID: KRYSTEXXA is the only gout treatment that changes uric acid into a water-soluble substance called allantoin that your body easily gets rid of through urine.
  • SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER URIC ACID LEVEL IN 24 HOURS: After just one IV treatment, it starts to lower your uric acid level enough to begin dissolving years of uric acid crystal buildup.
  • DISSOLVE YEARS OF GOUT BUILDUP IN JUST MONTHS: It can take more than two years for oral gout medicines to dissolve even a small amount of uric acid crystal buildup. KRYSTEXXA can dissolve most of it in about 6 months.

Before prescribing KRYSTEXXA, your doctor or gout specialist will test you for a rare G6PD (glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase) deficiency that would prevent you from starting treatment. Once cleared, your doctor will confirm KRYSTEXXA is covered by your insurance. Take advantage of support services throughout your treatment as much or as little as you’d like.

MEET YOUR PAM

A dedicated Patient Access Manager (PAM) can help you navigate your insurance and support you through treatment at your discretion. All KRYSTEXXA support services are optional.

GO FOR A BLOOD TEST

Your doctor may check your baseline uric acid level. You’ll get rechecked a day or two before each IV treatment to ensure KRYSTEXXA is working as planned. You should stop oral urate-lowering therapy one week before your first treatment.

GET PRE-IV TREATMENT MEDICINE

Your doctor may prescribe steroids or antihistamines to help you better tolerate KRYSTEXXA.
