Dosing and titration schedule1

Doptelet Dosing and Titration Schedule for ITP
Medicine Bottle Icon

Use the lowest dose of Doptelet needed to achieve and maintain a platelet count of ≥50x109/L. 
Dose adjustments are based on platelet count.1

*Start patients taking moderate or strong dual inhibitors of CYP2C9 and CYP3A4 with 20 mg 3 times a week; start patients taking moderate or strong dual inducers of CYP2C9 and CYP3A4 with 40 mg once daily. Please see Full Prescribing Information for additional information on dose adjustments.1

After initiating therapy with Doptelet, assess platelet counts weekly until a stable platelet count of ≥50x109/L has been achieved, and then obtain platelet counts monthly thereafter. Obtain platelet counts weekly for at least 4 weeks following discontinuation of Doptelet.1

After adjusting dosage, wait 2 weeks to assess the effects of this regimen and any subsequent dose adjustments.1

§Doptelet has demonstrated safety in patients of Asian descent without the need for special dosing; no dose adjustments necessary for different conditions and population demographics.1

Doptelet is the only oral TPO-RA of its kind that your patients can take based on their schedule.

  • Patients are required to take Doptelet with food and on a consistent schedule

  • Patients can take Doptelet at home

Set chronic ITP treatment goals from the start

  • One goal of chronic ITP treatment is to increase and maintain a stable platelet count

  • Additional factors to consider when discussing treatment goals with your patients include the duration of ITP, frequency of bleeding episodes, increased risk factors for thromboembolism, comorbidities, age, medication adherence, support networks, patient preference, cost, and availability
