Designed with you and your child in mind

CUVPOSA is a uniform, premixed liquid, which:

    • Lets your child’s doctor adjust the dose based on the improvement and side effects your child may experience—designed to deliver an individualized dose for your child’s needs
    • Helps ensure that your child receives the intended dose
    • Makes it more convenient for you to give it to your child—no burden of crushing pills and mixing them in food
      • Use an accurate dose-measuring cup to get the right dose of CUVPOSA

    Give CUVPOSA at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals.

CUVPOSA is a prescription medication to help reduce chronic severe drooling in children aged 3 to 16 years with neurologic conditions that cause too much (abnormal) drooling.

How should I give CUVPOSA to my child?

    • Give CUVPOSA exactly as prescribed by your child’s doctor
    • Give CUVPOSA 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals
    • Your child’s doctor will tell you how much (milliliters or mLs) CUVPOSA to give your child
    • Do not change the dose of CUVPOSA unless your child’s doctor tells you to
    • You must measure the dose of CUVPOSA before giving it to your child. Use a specially marked dose-measuring cup (available at most pharmacies) to measure the right dose of CUVPOSA
    • To help make sure that your child swallows the dose, you should use an oral syringe to give the child each dose of CUVPOSA, after you measure the dose needed with a dose-measuring cup. Oral syringes are also available at most pharmacies
    • If you have questions about how to measure the dose or how to use an oral syringe, ask your child’s pharmacist or doctor
    • The dose of CUVPOSA that is needed to control drooling may be different for each child. CUVPOSA is usually started at a low dose and slowly increased as directed by your child’s doctor. This slow increase in dose continues until the best dose for your child is reached to control drooling
    • During this time, it is important to stay in close contact with your child’s doctor, and tell the doctor about any side effects that your child has
