Dosage information

The dose of Praluent® can be individualised based on patient characteristics such as baseline LDL-C level, goal of therapy, and response. Lipid levels can be assessed 4 to 8 weeks after treatment initiation or titration, and dose adjusted accordingly (up-titration or down-titration). If additional LDL-C reduction is needed in patients treated with 75 mg Q2W or 300 mg once Q4W (monthly), the dosage may be adjusted to the maximum dosage of 150 mg Q2W.

If a dose is missed, the patient should administer the injection as soon as possible and thereafter resume treatment on the original schedule.

For full instructions on use refer to the Patient information Leaflet.
