Am I eligible for Bendeka patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Bendeka patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Bendeka enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Bendeka patient assistance program?

Applying for the Bendeka patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Bendeka, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Bendeka assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Bendeka patient assistance program, we will also request your Bendeka medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Bendeka coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Bendeka coupons, discount cards, or copay cards. We do not offer printable Bendeka manufacturer coupons, Bendeka discounts, rebates, Bendeka savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Bendeka medication with NiceRx.

What is Bendeka?

Bendeka is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication distributed by Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc.

Bendamustine hydrochloride is an alkylating agent indicated for the treatment of patients with:

  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Efficacy relative to first-line therapies other than chlorambucil has not been established
  • Indolent B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) that has progressed during or within six months of treatment with rituximab or a rituximab-containing regimen

What doses of Bendeka are available?

Bendeka is available in injection form, in the following doses: 100 mg/4 mL (25 mg/mL) in a multiple-dose vial.

For Chronic lymphocytic leukemia administer 100 mg/m2 infused intravenously over 10 minutes on Days 1 and 2 of a 28­ day cycle, up to 6 treatment cycles. Make dose modifications for hematologic toxicity or non-hematologic toxicity.

Please read the full prescribing information and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Bendeka active ingredients

Bendeka contains the active ingredient bendamustine. Bendeka forms bonds with other electron-rich molecules, which results in interstrand DNA crosslinks and very strong bonds. Because cancer cells divide faster than normal cells, they are more affected by this bonding and the death rate of cancerous cells is greater than the death rate of normal cells. This slows the growth of cancer cells in the body.

Bendeka side effects

The most common side effects of bendamustine in clinical trials include:

  • Pyrexia
  • Nausea, and vomiting
  • Tiredness
  • Loss of appetite, weight loss, diarrhea, constipation, anorexia
  • Cough, trouble breathing
  • Headache
  • Dyspnea
  • Rash
  • Stomatitis
  • Lymphopenia, anemia (low red blood cells), leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, and neutropenia (low white blood cells), low platelets

In rare instances, Bendeka can cause more serious adverse reactions. These can include:

  • Myelosuppression
  • Infections
  • Anaphylaxis and infusion reactions
  • Tumor lysis syndrome – allopurinol has been used at the start of treatment
  • Other malignancies (types of cancer) such as myelodysplastic syndrome, or acute myeloid leukemia
  • Extravasation – take precautions to avoid extravasation, including monitoring intravenous infusion site during and after administration
  • Fatal and serious skin reactions such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Bendeka against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Bendeka to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
