Therefore, prescribers should evaluate the patient's response to KEVEYIS after 2 months of treatment to decide whether KEVEYIS should be continued.

Monitoring to Assess Safety

Baseline and periodic measurements of serum potassium and serum bicarbonate during KEVEYIS treatment is recommended [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3, 5.4)].
