If you have any questions about how to use EVRYSDI, contact your healthcare provider.

Important information about EVRYSDI: Ask your healthcare provider to show you the correct syringe you should use and how to measure your prescribed daily dose.
Always use the re-usable oral syringes provided in the pack to measure your prescribed daily dose. The oral syringe protects the medicine from light.
Two oral syringes of each size are provided in case one gets lost or damaged. Contact your healthcare provider if both oral syringes are lost or damaged. They will advise you on how to continue to take your medicine.
See "How to select the correct oral syringe to use for your prescribed dose volume of EVRYSDI" for the correct oral syringe you should use. Ask your healthcare professional if you have questions on how to select the right oral syringe.
