What is CRYSVITA?

CRYSVITA is a prescription medicine used to treat adults and children 1 year of age and older with X-linked hypophosphatemia (XLH).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

You should not take CRYSVITA if:

  • You take an oral phosphate supplement and a specific form of vitamin D supplement
  • Your phosphorus levels from a blood sample are within or above the normal range for age
  • You have kidney problems

What is the most important information you should know about CRYSVITA?

  • Some patients developed allergic reactions (rash and hives) while taking CRYSVITA. Your doctor will monitor you for symptoms of an allergic reaction while you are taking CRYSVITA.
  • High levels of phosphorus in the blood have been reported in some patients taking CRYSVITA. This may be related to a risk of high calcium levels in the kidneys. Your doctor will collect samples to monitor your levels.
  • Administration of CRYSVITA may result in reactions at the injection site, such as hives, reddening of the skin, rash, swelling, bruising, pain, severe itching of the skin, and collection of blood outside of a blood vessel (hematoma).
