Helping with your PROCYSBI prescription

Horizon By Your Side can help get you started on PROCYSBI and will help you connect with the specialty pharmacy. PROCYSBI is only available through a specialty pharmacy and service provider for patients.

Your PROCYSBI prescription is filled and sent to your home through a package delivery service. PALs can help keep patients on track with refills and answer any questions you have.

Talk to your doctor about a PROCYSBI prescription. The Patient Enrollment Form found here is required, and your doctor will assist you in filling it out.

To avoid a gap in treatment, plan ahead. Mark your calendar to contact the specialty pharmacy to schedule a timely delivery of your refill.

Ordering refills

When to reorder PROCYSBI:

  • Before you run out
  • Before the discard date written by your pharmacist

When you fill your prescription for PROCYSBI, there should be exactly enough capsules in the bottle or enough tear-open packets of oral granules to last until your next refill arrives. Do not use expired PROCYSBI.

USE and IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION 

What is PROCYSBI?

PROCYSBI (cysteamine bitartrate) delayed-release capsules and delayed-release oral granules is a prescription medicine used to treat nephropathic cystinosis in adults and children 1 year of age and older. It is not known if PROCYSBI is safe and effective in children under 1 year of age.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

What is the most important safety information I should know about PROCYSBI?

PROCYSBI can cause serious side effects, including:

  • Skin, bone, and joint problems. People treated with high doses of cysteamine bitartrate may develop abnormal changes of their skin and bones, such as stretch marks, bone injuries (such as fractures), bone deformities, and joint problems. Check your skin while taking PROCYSBI. Tell your doctor if you notice any skin changes or problems with your bones or joints. Your doctor will check you for these problems.
  • Skin rash. Skin rash is common with cysteamine bitartrate and may sometimes be severe. Your dose of PROCYSBI may need to be decreased until the rash goes away. If the rash is severe, your doctor may tell you to stop taking PROCYSBI. Tell your doctor right away if you get a skin rash.
  • Stomach and bowel (intestinal) problems. Some people who take other medicines that contain cysteamine bitartrate develop ulcers and bleeding in their stomach or bowel. Tell your doctor right away if you get stomach-area pain, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, or vomit blood.
  • Central nervous system symptoms. Some people who take other medicines that contain cysteamine bitartrate develop seizures, depression, and become very sleepy. The medicine may affect how your brain is working (encephalopathy). Tell your doctor right away if you develop any of these symptoms.
  • Low white blood cell count and certain abnormal liver function blood tests. Your doctor should check you for these problems.
  • Benign intracranial hypertension (pseudotumor cerebri) has happened in some people who take immediate-release cysteamine bitartrate. This is a condition where there is high pressure in the fluid around the brain. Your doctor should do eye examinations to find and treat this problem early. Tell your doctor right away if you develop any of the following symptoms while taking PROCYSBI: headache, buzzing or "whooshing" sound in the ear, dizziness, nausea, double vision, blurry vision, loss of vision, pain behind the eye, or pain with eye movement.

Who should not take PROCYSBI?

Do not take PROCYSBI if you are allergic to penicillamine or cysteamine.

What should I tell my doctor before taking PROCYSBI?

Tell your doctor if you have any other medical conditions, including if you:

The most common side effects of PROCYSBI include: vomiting, nausea, stomach (abdominal) pain, pink eye, diarrhea, cold, tiredness, flu, headache, problems with body salts or electrolytes, infection of ear, nose or throat, joint pain.
