Am I eligible for the Dexilant patient assistance program?

If you meet the eligibility criteria for the patient assistance program, you could receive your Dexilant without paying the full retail price. We review each application individually, although the main factors considered by most patient assistance programs 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 Dexilant patient assistance program? 

NiceRx makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Dexilant patient assistance program by handling the application process for you. Just fill in our enrollment application, and tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Dexilant. We’ll ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you are eligible for assistance, we’ll handle the full application process and help you enroll you in the Dexilant patient assistance program. Once enrolled in the program, we’ll also request your Dexilant medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Dexilant coupon provider?

NiceRx is not a Dexilant coupon provider. Neither do we offer a Dexilant discount card or a Dexilant copay card. We don’t offer printable Dexilant manufacturer coupons, Dexilant discounts, rebates, Dexilant savings cards, trial offers, or free Dexilant samples.

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Dexilant patient assistance program. If you’re looking for coupons for Dexilant or cheap Dexilant, keep in mind you can likely save more with NiceRx. When obtaining your Dexilant medication with our support, your total cost for the medication will always be $49 per month.

Can NiceRx help me get Dexilant if I have insurance?

If your insurance company won’t pay for your Dexilant medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility, NiceRx may still be able to help. We may even be able to assist if you don’t have insurance.

How much is Dexilant with insurance?

The cost of Dexilant will vary by the healthcare plan. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Remember, if you’re approved for assistance, you’ll likely save more if you get your Dexilant medication through NiceRx.

How much is Dexilant without insurance?

Dexilant prices without insurance will vary depending on the dosage, number of capsules, and where you buy it. You can expect to pay around $360 for a pack of 30, 60mg capsules. With NiceRx you’ll always pay a flat monthly fee of $49.

What is Dexilant?

Dexilant is a medication that reduces levels of stomach acid (also called gastric acid). Taken to heal erosive esophagitis, the medication also provides relief from heartburn caused by erosive esophagitis or by non-erosive gastroesophageal reflux disease. Dexilant is taken orally, usually as a capsule. Dexilant helps with erosive esophagitis and heartburn by reducing the level of acid in your stomach. This makes it less likely that the acid will rise up into your esophagus.

Erosive esophagitis is a disease that causes inflammation in your esophagus – the tube that connects your throat to your stomach. The most common cause of the disease is stomach acid flowing out of the stomach and into the esophagus. It can cause pain and a burning sensation in the upper chest known as heartburn or acid reflux. Heartburn can also be caused by other stomach conditions, where acid escapes from your stomach into the esophagus.

Dexilant active ingredients

The active ingredient in Dexilant is called dexlansoprazole. Dexlansoprazole is a type of drug known as a proton pump inhibitor. When swallowed, it binds to the proton pump system in the stomach. This system is one of the last stages in the process that produces stomach acid. By binding with the proton pump system, dexlansoprazole blocks it, stopping the process and reducing the production of stomach acid.

Dexilant side effects & Dexilant drug interactions

Like all medications, Dexilant can cause side effects. Not everyone will get side effects though or experience the same ones. The most common Dexilant side effects include diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting, flatulence, and upper respiratory chest infections. More serious side effects are rarer, reported by less than 2% of patients in clinical trials. Some of these include chest pain and heart arrhythmia, tinnitus, muscle cramps, migraines, and insomnia.

This isn’t a full list of all the side effects that Dexilant can cause. For more details see the patient leaflet that comes with your medication. If you have any concerns about Dexilant side effects, talk to your physician or a pharmacist.

Dexilant can interact with other medications, changing how it and the other medications work, and making side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins and dietary supplements. In particular, tell them if you’re taking:

  • Drugs that are dependent on a certain stomach pH level to be absorbed properly, like the HIV protease inhibitor atazanavir, ampicillin esters, digoxin, iron salts, or ketoconazole
  • Warfarin
  • Methotrexate
  • Tacrolimus 
  • Clopidogrel 

Dexilant warnings & precautions

Don’t take Dexilant if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient dexlansoprazole
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients found in Dexilant (listed in the leaflet which comes with the medication)
  • Are under 18 years of age

Talk to your physician before taking Dexilant if you:

  • Have a moderate or severe liver condition
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding 
  • Are over 65 years of age

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
