Am I eligible for the Edurant patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Edurant patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however the 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 Edurant patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Edurant patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Edurant. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Edurant assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Edurant patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Edurant medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx an Edurant coupons provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Edurant patient assistance program. That means that we do not offer printable Edurant manufacturer coupons, Edurant discounts, or free Edurant samples. We are not an Edurant coupon provider or an Edurant discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Edurant if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Edurant patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company will not pay for your Edurant medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you do not have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.

How much is Edurant with insurance?

The cost of Edurant with insurance depends on the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out how much this is, your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Edurant cost without insurance?

Edurant prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it and how much you buy. As a guide, the cost of Edurant oral tablets 25 mg is around $1,200 for a supply of 30 tablets. With NiceRx you will pay a flat monthly fee of $49, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

What is Edurant?

Edurant contains the prescription medicine rilpivirine which is classed as an antiviral medicine. Edurant can not be used alone. It is always used in combination with other antiviral drugs to treat the symptoms and to stop the spread of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in your body. HIV is the virus that can cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Edurant is used with other antiviral medicines to treat adults and children 12 years of age and older and who weigh at least 77 lbs (35 kg) who:

  • Have a viral load (an amount of HIV-1 in the blood) no more than 100,000 copies/mL
  • Have never taken HIV medicines before

Edurant is not a cure for HIV or AIDS.

Edurant active ingredients

Rilpivirine works by blocking a specific enzyme known as HIV reverse transcriptase from working in your body. Blocking this enzyme prevents the production of more HIV DNA. This reduces the amount of the HIV virus in your body and slows it from spreading.

Edurant is usually taken once per day with a full meal. It is very important to always take the medicine with food and take Edurant exactly as prescribed by your doctor. You may need regular blood tests, as well as kidney and liver function tests while taking Edurant.

Make sure you get your medication refilled before you run out completely. If you have hepatitis B you may develop liver symptoms after stopping taking this medication, even months after. You may need to have your liver function checked for several months after you have stopped using Edurant. HIV/AIDS is usually treated with a combination of drugs. Do not take Edurant as your only HIV medication.

Edurant side effects

The most common side effects caused by Edurant include:

  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Feeling weak
  • Indigestion
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Skin rash
  • Changes in the shape or location of body fat, around your arms, legs, face, neck, breasts, and waist

In rare instances, Edurant can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Mood change
  • Yellowing of your skin or eyes
  • Thoughts about hurting yourself
  • Disturbed sleep

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Edurant against your risk of side effects.
