Krystexxa Medication Information

If you have gout, your healthcare provider may prescribe Krystexxa® (pegloticase). This medicine is specifically approved for preventing gout attacks; it is not effective for treating an attack that has already started.
 
Your healthcare provider will administer Krystexxa intravenously (via an IV infusion) that lasts approximately two hours, once every two weeks. Common side effects include nausea, bruising, and hives.
 
Before starting treatment, it's important to review the safety information for Krystexxa. This medication may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have any other medical conditions (such as heart problems or any allergies) or are taking any other type of medicine (including nonprescription drugs, herbal supplements, or vitamins).
