How to take lupkynis

A dosing schedule that fits into your life, not the other way around

LUPKYNIS is an oral medication that's taken twice a day throughout the course of your treatment. Before starting LUPKYNIS, talk to your doctor about all the medications you are currently taking.

Taken by mouth, not by injection

A standard dose is 3 capsules, 2x a day

Dosage schedule stays the same throughout treatment

LUPKYNIS should be taken on an empty stomach as close to 12 hours apart as possible (with a minimum of 8 hours between doses). Your doctor will determine the right dosage for you when prescribing LUPKYNIS. They will monitor you throughout the course of your treatment and may also change your dose. Always take LUPKYNIS as directed by your doctor.
