Taltz dosing for children with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis
Taltz is approved to treat kids and teens ages 6 and up with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Dosing is based on weight
For kids and teens ages 6 and up, dosing is based on weight, which determines whether a nurse or a doctor must train the caregiver for at-home injections or must administer themselves at the office, as follows:
- For those weighing 110 lb or less, an appropriate dose of Taltz must be administered by a nurse or doctor
- Caregivers of those weighing more than 110 lb must be trained by a nurse or doctor for at-home injections
- For the correct dosage, please follow the chart
If you are a caregiver administering Taltz, watch the video or read the Instructions for Use that come with the prefilled syringe. Once enrolled in Taltz Together™, a Companion in Care™ can help connect you to a registered nurse who can provide injection support in-home or over the phone.
For other important administration and preparation instructions, talk to the child's doctor and refer to the Instructions for Use that come with your device.
Select Safety Information
Your doctor should check you for tuberculosis (TB) before you start Taltz, and watch you closely for signs of TB during and after treatment with Taltz. If you have TB, or had it in the past, your doctor may treat you for it before you start Taltz.
