Am I eligible for the Durezol patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for the Durezol patient assistance program, apply online with NiceRx. We review each enrollment application individually, although the main factors considered by most 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 Durezol patient assistance program? 

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Durezol patient assistance program. Fill in the online enrollment application on our website to start the process. You will need to tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Durezol. We’ll also ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who’ll supply your medication, so it must be up to date information.

Once NiceRx determines you may be eligible for Durezol assistance, we’ll handle the full enrollment process for you. Once enrolled in the patient assistance program, we’ll also request your Durezol medication refills on your behalf for up to one year.

Is NiceRx a Durezol coupons provider?

NiceRx is not a Durezol coupon, a Durezol discount card, or a Durezol copay card provider. We don’t offer printable Durezol manufacturer coupons, Durezol discounts, rebates, Durezol savings cards, trial offers, or free Durezol samples. NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Durezol patient assistance program. 

If you’re looking for coupons for Durezol or cheap Durezol, you will likely save more with NiceRx. When obtaining your Durezol medication through NiceRx, your total cost will always be $49 per month.

Can NiceRx help me get Durezol if I have insurance? 

Eligibility for the Durezol patient assistance program may vary by program. This means that we may be able to help you even if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Durezol
  • Your insurance company won’t pay for your Durezol prescription
  • You don’t have insurance

Apply online with NiceRx to find out more.

How much is Durezol with insurance?

The cost of Durezol with insurance will depend on your insurance plan. To find out what you may need to pay for Durezol with insurance, your pharmacist or healthcare provider will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Durezol cost without insurance?

Durezol prices can vary by retailer, but as a guide, a 5 ml bottle of 0.05% Durezol ophthalmic emulsion will cost around $250.

What is Durezol?

Durezol is a prescription eye drop given to adults and children to:

  • Reduce pain and inflammation after eye surgery
  • To treat an eye condition called endogenous anterior uveitis

If you feel pain or experience inflammation after an eye operation, or your doctor diagnoses you as having endogenous anterior uveitis, you may be prescribed Durezol. It’s an eye drop corticosteroid medication that is proven to reduce pain and inflammation in your eyes. 

You take Durezol by dropping the liquid directly into your eyes using the dropper bottle it comes in. You typically use Durezol twice to four times a day, depending on your condition, although always make sure you use your Durezol exactly as described by your doctor or pharmacist.  

Durezol active ingredients

The active ingredient in Durezol is called difluprednate. It’s a corticosteroid that can reduce inflammation and pain.

When you drop Durezol into your eyes, difluprednate attaches to the surface of cells in your eyes at sites called receptors. By attaching to these receptors, difluprednate turns off a process inside the cells that creates inflammation triggering substances. This helps to reduce inflammation in your eyes and the pain the inflammation causes. 

Durezol side effects & Durezol drug interactions

Durezol can cause side effects. And when it does, the most common include:

  • Headaches
  • Eye pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light (photophobia)
  • Increased intraocular pressure (IOP) that can affect your vision
  • Swelling in various parts of your eye, such as the outer surface of the eye (cornea) and the colored part of your eye (iris)
  • Inflammation of your eyelids (blepharitis)
  • Eye redness caused by widening of the blood vessels in your eye (ciliary and conjunctival hyperemia)
  • A common complication of cataract surgery called posterior capsule opacification (PCO) that can make it feel like you still have a cataract

In rare instances, Durezol can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • An increase in intraocular pressure (IOP) that can cause visual disturbances and can damage to the optic nerve
  • A type of cataract called subcapsular cataract
  • Delayed healing after an eye operation
  • An increased risk of bacterial, viral, or fungal infections in your eyes

Durezol can interact with other medications. This can change how Durezol and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins, and herbal and dietary supplements, particularly:

  • Any other medications or products you put directly into your eyes
  • Any other medications that can affect your immune system, such as other corticosteroids 

Durezol warnings & precautions

Don’t put Durezol into your eyes whilst wearing contact lenses as your lenses may absorb the Durezol. Take your contact lenses out and then wait ten minutes after you’ve used Durezol before you put them back in.

Don’t take Durezol if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient difluprednate
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Durezol 
  • Have a current bacterial, viral, or fungal infection in your eyes

Talk to your doctor before taking Durezol if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Durezol 
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed
