SIDE EFFECTS AND MANAGEMENT

Make a plan to prepare for a new medicine

You may have side effects…

Your healthcare team will help you understand your medication, including possible side effects. The most common side effects of TYVASO are cough, headache, throat irritation and pain, and dizziness. Having a plan to manage potential side effects can help you feel prepared and stay on track to get the full benefits of your medicine.

 

 

Managing the side effects of your medicine

Be sure to contact your nurse about things you can do to help manage side effects while continuing treatment, such as:

COUGH/THROAT IRRITATION

Review proper technique 

Sit upright and ensure that you are not leaning down to the device

Keep the device level and take normal breaths during treatment; avoid holding your breath once you inhale 

Before treatment, drink very cold or very warm water 

If needed, use a throat spray to numb your throat before treatment

Talk to your nurse to see if slowing the pace at which you increase your dose could help 

HEADACHE

Use an over-the-counter pain reliever, like acetaminophen

Talk to your nurse to see if slowing the pace at which you increase your dose could help 

If you experience side effects, reach out to your nurse or doctor.
DO NOT STOP taking TYVASO without talking to your healthcare provider.

If you've been prescribed TYVASO for PH-ILD, you'll work with a Specialty Pharmacy to get your medicine.
