Additional dosing information:1

•    Cyendiv® capsules should be:
      –    Taken approximately 12 hours apart with food
      –    Swallowed whole with a glass of water
•    If a dose is missed, treatment should resume at the next scheduled time and at the recommended dose
•    The maximum daily dose of 300 mg should not be exceeded

Dose reduction or temporary treatment interruption can help to manage AEs while maintaining clinical efficacy in patients with systemic sclerosis-associated interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD)3

Cyendiv® may be resumed at the full dose (150 mg twice daily) or reintroduced at a reduced dose (100 mg twice daily), which subsequently may be increased to the full dose1

Regardless of dose adjustment or treatment interruption to manage side effects, the efficacy of Cyendiv® was maintained in patients with SSc-ILD3
