The support starts here.

  • Support doesn't stop when your patients leave your office. ForgingBridges | TRUSELTIQ is with them every step of the way. A trained member of our staff will contact you to assess any medication needs your patients may have. Your patients will be contacted regularly to assess treatment adherence and to ask about any questions that may have come up.

This offers patients:

  • Regularly scheduled support calls from a pharmacy care team specialist
  • Nurses and pharmacists on staff and on stand by through our hotline: 1-888-55BRIDGE (1-888-552-7434) Monday-Friday, 8 AM-8 PM ET
    • Your or your patient’s call will be received by a case manager who will then connect you or your patient to the right member of our care team

  • Your patients can talk to a Nurse Educator on the phone if they have questions about their treatment with TRUSELTIQ through our hotline: 1-888-55BRIDGE (1-888-552-7434) Monday-Friday, 8 AM-8 PM ET.

Nurse Educators can answer questions your patients may have, such as:

  • What do they do if they miss a dose of TRUSELTIQ?
  • What are the possible side effects of TRUSELTIQ?
  • How should they take TRUSELTIQ?
  • What questions should they ask you about their treatment?

Although Nurse Educators know a lot about TRUSELTIQ, you are the one who knows what’s best for your patient’s specific care. Nurse Educators do not replace your role as their healthcare provider. We encourage patients to speak with their healthcare team if they have a specific question about their treatment.

Once you prescribe TRUSELTIQ for your patient, they will be sent a Starting Treatment Kit right to their home. This kit will introduce them to their new therapy. Inside, they will find an informative brochure about TRUSELTIQ on how to take their medicine and possible side effects they may experience throughout their treatment journey.

Accelerated approval was granted based on overall response rate and duration of response. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification of clinical benefit in confirmatory trial(s).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Warnings and precautions

  • Ocular toxicity: Retinal pigment epithelial detachment (RPED), which may cause blurred vision, occurred in 11% of 351 patients treated with TRUSELTIQ, including patients with asymptomatic RPED, with a median onset of 26 days. Perform comprehensive ophthalmological exam including optical coherence tomography prior to initiating, at 1 month, at 3 months, and then every 3 months during treatment with TRUSELTIQ. Urgently evaluate patients for onset of visual symptoms and follow up every 3 weeks until resolved or TRUSELTIQ is discontinued. Withhold TRUSELTIQ as recommended. Dry eye occurred in 29% of 351 patients; treat with ocular demulcents as needed
  • Hyperphosphatemia and soft tissue mineralization: Hyperphosphatemia, which can lead to soft tissue mineralization, cutaneous calcinosis, non-uremic calciphylaxis, vascular calcification, and myocardial calcification, occurred in 82% of 351 patients treated with TRUSELTIQ, with a median time to onset of 8 days (range 1-349); 83% of 351 patients treated with TRUSELTIQ received phosphate binders. Monitor for hyperphosphatemia throughout treatment. Initiate phosphate-lowering therapy for serum phosphate >5.5 mg/dL; withhold TRUSELTIQ and initiate phosphate-lowering therapy for serum phosphate >7.5 mg/dL; withhold, reduce the dose, or permanently discontinue TRUSELTIQ based on duration and severity of hyperphosphatemia
  • Embryo-fetal toxicity: TRUSELTIQ can cause fetal harm. Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to the fetus; advise females of reproductive potential and men who are partnered with women of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TRUSELTIQ and for 1 month after the final dose
