Make a plan

  • Make sure to urinate before meetings, dinner time, movies, or other social events

Talking to family

Talking about JYNARQUE® (tolvaptan)

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is an inherited disease. You may want to talk about JYNARQUE with your family members

Sharing your experiences with JYNARQUE may help your family members

  • If you are comfortable talking to your family members about your ADPKD treatment plan, this information might help them understand what you're going through
  • Since ADPKD is an inherited disease, there might be other people in your family who have it. It might also help them to know the options available for adults living with ADPKD
