Your monthly Aubagio cost savings if eligible

Am I eligible for the Aubagio patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Aubagio assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider are:
- I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
- I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
- I meet certain income eligibility requirements
How do I apply for the Aubagio patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Aubagio patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Aubagio.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Aubagio assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Aubagio patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Aubagio.
Is NiceRx an Aubagio coupons provider?
NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Aubagio patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Aubagio samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Aubagio coupons, discount cards, or Aubagio copay cards.
Can NiceRx help me get Aubagio if I have insurance?
NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Aubagio medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much does Aubagio cost without insurance?
Aubagio prices without insurance will vary depending on the quantity you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, 28 Aubagio tablets 7 mg typically cost $7900.
What is Aubagio?
Aubagio is an FDA-approved medication manufactured by Sanofi Genzyme. It contains the prescription drug teriflunomide. Aubagio is used to treat relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), including, clinically isolated syndrome, and active secondary progressive disease, in adults. Aubagio acts on the immune system and also reduces inflammation and swelling in the nervous system. Aubagio however is not a cure for multiple sclerosis and it is not known if Aubagio is safe to use in children.
You may need to be tested before starting treatment to make sure you do not have tuberculosis or any other infections. Teriflunomide can decrease your white blood cell (lymphocytes) count so you will need to be tested for this as well as your blood pressure regularly. You may need to take other medicines once you stop taking Aubagio, to help your body get rid of teriflunomide. Otherwise, teriflunomide can stay in your body for up to 2 years. This is especially important if you plan to become pregnant.
What doses of Aubagio are available?
Aubagio is available in film-coated tablet form, in the following doses: 7 mg or 14 mg.
Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Aubagio active ingredients
Teriflunomide is classed as an immunomodulatory agent with anti-inflammatory properties, meaning it acts on the immune system but also reduces swelling. It blocks the effects of an enzyme called dihydroorotate dehydrogenase, which is involved in the initial production of pyrimidine. Pyrimidine is essential for the production of DNA and RNA in the body.
In clinical trials, MRI scans show that people taking Aubagio had fewer, smaller, or no new areas of active MS lesions in the brain.
The exact mechanism of action of teriflunomide for multiple sclerosis is not fully understood, but it is thought to reduce the number of white blood cells that have been activated by the presence of a foreign antigen in the Central Nervous System.
Aubagio side effects
The most common side effects of Aubagio include:
- Nausea (feeling sick)
- Hair thinning, alopecia
- Abnormal liver function tests
In rare instances, Aubagio can cause more serious side effects. These can include:
- Problems with your liver – jaundice (yellow color of skin or eyes), upper stomach pain, dark urine, and loss of appetite
- Signs of infection – nausea, vomiting, fever, aching body, tiredness
- Interstitial lung disease – shortness of breath, loss of appetite, unexplained weight loss, mild chest pain
- New or worsening cough, with or without a fever
- Peripheral neuropathy – tingling feeling or hands and feet feel numb (differing to normal MS symptoms)
- Serious skin reactions (eg, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis, drug reaction with eosinophilia, and systemic symptoms) – stop treatment if this occurs
- A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, you may not be able to tell it apart from a rare rash that could be a sign of a severe allergic reaction. Get medical help immediately if you do develop a rash of any sort
Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

- Medication used for the treatment of HIV/AIDS – abacavir, lamivudine, efavirenz, nevirapine, zidovudine
- Medication used for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, or Crohn’s disease – etanercept, infliximab, golimumab, ustekinumab

- Steroid treatments – betamethasone, dexamethasone, prednisolone
- Antibiotics used to treat infections – clarithromycin, rifampin, nitrofurantoin
This list is not exhaustive and other drugs interact with Aubagio. Also tell your doctor about any vitamins, herbs, and supplements you use. Sharing this information can help you avoid potential interactions.
You should not use Aubagio if you:
- Are allergic to the active ingredient teriflunomide or leflunomide
- Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Aubagio
- Have severe liver problems
- Are taking other immunosuppressants such as leflunomide
- Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant – teriflunomide is contraindicated for use in pregnant women and women of reproductive potential who are not using effective contraception (birth control) because of the potential birth defects to the fetus. You should have a pregnancy test before starting this medication
Talk to your doctor before using Aubagio if you:
- Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Aubagio
- Have liver disease
- Have kidney disease
- Have high blood sugar (hyperglycemia)
- Have high blood pressure (hypertension)
- Have uncontrolled infections or fever
- Have difficulty breathing
- Have tuberculosis
- Have bone marrow problems or disorders
- Have any nerve problems
- Plan to have a “live” vaccine – you should not have a live vaccine while using Aubagio, and for at least 6 months after you stop taking it. The vaccine may not work as well during this time, and you may not be fully protected
- Are breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed
Teriflunomide decreases the white blood cell count that helps you fight infections. This can make it easier for you to get sick. You may need blood tests every 6 months while receiving Aubagio treatment. Your blood pressure will also need to be checked regularly.
Aubagio may stay in your body for up to 2 years after you have stopped taking it. You may need to be treated with other medications to help your body eliminate teriflunomide quickly.
Aubagio is the trademark brand name for teriflunomide manufactured by Sanofi Genzyme. A generic version of teriflunomide is available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Aubagio savings through NiceRx.
