Infections
TREMFYA™ may increase the risk of infection. Treatment with TREMFYA™ should not be initiated in patients with a clinically important active infection until the infection resolves or is adequately treated.

Consider the risks and benefits of treatment prior to prescribing TREMFYA™ in patients with a chronic infection or a history of recurrent infection. Instruct patients receiving TREMFYA™ to seek medical help if signs or symptoms of clinically important chronic or acute infection occur. If a patient develops a clinically important or serious infection, or is not responding to standard therapy, closely monitor and discontinue TREMFYA™ until the infection resolves.

Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of active TB during and after TREMFYA™ treatment. Do not administer TREMFYA™ to patients with active TB infection.
