Step 2: Use oral syringe

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 available at most pharmacies.

Step 3: Give CUVPOSA

Administer the dose your doctor prescribed into your child’s mouth with the oral syringe. Make sure they swallow all of the liquid.

Things to remember:

  • Give CUVPOSA exactly as prescribed by your child’s doctor
  • Your child’s doctor will tell you how much CUVPOSA (milliliters, or mL) to give your child
  • Do not change the dose of CUVPOSA unless your child’s doctor tells you to1
  • 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 drooling1
  • 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
  • Ask your child’s doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about how to measure the dose or how to use an oral syringe
