The most common side effects of STRENSIQ include local skin injection-site reactions (including red skin patches, bruising, color change, pain, itching, thinning, swelling, pits, and bumps) and calcium buildup in your eyes and kidneys.

Strensiq may affect other lab test results, therefore it is important that you present your Medical Alert Card to your healthcare team so they are aware that you are being treated with an alkaline phosphatase (ALP) replacement therapy which may cause incorrect results on certain laboratory tests.

 Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed.

These are not all the possible side effects of STRENSIQ. For more information, ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist. Call your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to the US Food and Drug Administration at 1-800-FDA-1088.
