Am I eligible for the Farxiga patient assistance program?

If you meet the eligibility criteria, you could receive your Farxiga medication without paying the full retail price. At NiceRx, we review each Farxiga assistance program 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 Farxiga patient assistance program? 

NiceRx makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Farxiga patient assistance program. Begin by completing our enrollment application, and tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Farxiga. You will need to provide 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 may be eligible for assistance, we will help to enroll you in the Farxiga patient assistance program. All stages of the application process will be handled by NiceRx. Once enrolled in the program, we’ll also request your Farxiga medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Farxiga coupon provider?

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

If you’re looking for Farxiga coupons, remember you can likely save more with NiceRx. When obtaining your Farxiga medication through NiceRx, your total cost for the medication will always be the same flat fee of $49 every month.

Can NiceRx help me get Farxiga if I have insurance?

If your insurance company won’t pay for your Farxiga medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility, we may still be able to help.

How much is Farxiga with insurance?

The cost of Farxiga will depend on your healthcare plan. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Remember, if you’re approved for the patient assistance program, you’ll likely save more on your Farxiga medication.

How much is Farxiga without insurance?

Farxiga prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it and the strength of the pills you purchase. You can expect to pay around $540 for a pack of 30 tablets of Farxiga 5mg or 10mg. With NiceRx you’ll always pay a flat monthly fee of $49.

What is Farxiga?

Farxiga is a medication used to lower blood sugar levels in people who have type 2 diabetes. It is also used in certain people to lower the risk of hospitalization for heart failure. Farxiga is taken as a pill, usually once a day.

Patients with diabetes struggle to maintain a normal blood sugar level. When they digest food, sugar is then released into the blood and their bodies don’t absorb it as well as they should. This can lead to high levels of blood sugar, which can cause a range of health problems over time.

Farxiga is used alongside exercise and changes in diet to manage blood sugar. It helps to remove excess blood sugar through urine. The medication can be used in combination with some other diabetes medications too, including insulin, metformin, or a sulfonylurea.

Farxiga active ingredients

The active ingredient in Farxiga is called dapagliflozin. When absorbed into your bloodstream, dapagliflozin slows down the rate at which your kidneys absorb sugar from your blood. This causes your kidneys to release sugar into your urine. Your blood sugar levels then fall as you urinate.

Farxiga side effects & drug interactions

Like all medications, Farxiga can have side effects, although not everyone will get them, or experience the same ones. Common Farxiga side effects include dehydration, changes in urination, dizziness, back pain, and a yeast infection of the vagina or penis. More serious, but rarer, side effects can include low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), more serious urinary tract infections, inflammation of the pancreas, diabetic ketoacidosis, and a rare bacterial infection that damages the tissue under the skin in the area between the anus and genitals (necrotizing fasciitis).

These aren’t all side effects Farxiga can cause. You can find more details in the patient leaflet that comes with your medication. If you have any concerns about Farxiga side effects, talk to your physician or a pharmacist.

Farxiga can interact with other medications, changing how it and other medications work. If this happens, side effects may be more likely. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins and dietary supplements. In particular, let them know if you’re taking a diuretic or any other medications for diabetes like insulin or sulfonylureas.

  • Have severe kidney issues or are on dialysis
  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
