Am I eligible for Clenpiq patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Clenpiq patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Clenpiq 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 Clenpiq patient assistance program?

Applying for the Clenpiq 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 Clenpiq, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Clenpiq assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf.

What is Clenpiq?

Clenpiq is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Ferring Pharmaceuticals Inc. It is a combination of sodium picosulfate, a stimulant laxative, magnesium oxide, and anhydrous citric acid, which form magnesium citrate, an osmotic laxative, indicated for colon cleansing and bowel preparation for colonoscopy in adults and pediatric patients ages 9 years and older.

What doses of Clenpiq are available?

Clenpiq is available in oral solution form, in the following doses: 10 mg of sodium picosulfate, 3.5 g of magnesium oxide, and 12 g of anhydrous citric acid in 160 mL of solution.

You must dilute the powder form of this medicine with 5 ounces of cold water before taking it. The oral solution (liquid) may be taken without adding water. Do not eat solid food once you start taking this medicine. Do not drink any fluids at least 2 hours before the colonoscopy.

You will need to drink extra water once you start your colon prep. Drink only clear liquids and do not drink alcohol, milk, or any drink that is red or purple. Your clear liquid diet may consist of water (plain or flavored), black coffee or tea (no milk, cream, soy, or non-dairy creamer), clear broth or bouillon, sports drinks (not red or purple), clear juices without pulp (such as apple juice, or white grape juice), ginger ale and other sodas (not red or purple), plain jello (not red or purple), or frozen juice bars (not red or purple).

Call your doctor if you are sick with vomiting and cannot drink enough water for your bowel prep, or if you have a headache, dizziness, or decreased urination.
