2.1 Recommended Dosage

The recommended dosage of LEQVIO, in combination with maximally tolerated statin therapy, is 284 mg administered as a single subcutaneous injection initially, again at 3 months, and then every 6 months.

If a planned dose is missed by less than 3 months, administer LEQVIO and maintain dosing according to the patient’s original schedule.

If a planned dose is missed by more than 3 months, restart with a new dosing schedule - administer LEQVIO initially, again at 3 months, and then every 6 months.

Assess LDL-C when clinically indicated. The LDL-lowering effect of LEQVIO may be measured as early as 30 days after initiation and anytime thereafter without regard to timing of the dose.
