Am I eligible for the Farydak patient assistance program?

You could receive your Farydak without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx, we review each 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 Farydak patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking and Farydak.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Farydak patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Farydak medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

What is Farydak?

Farydak is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Secura Bio, Inc. Farydak, is classed as a histone deacetylase inhibitor (HDAC). It is used in combination with bortezomib and dexamethasone, to treat multiple myeloma patients who have received at least 2 prior treatments, including bortezomib and an immunomodulatory agent.

Multiple myeloma is a type of blood cancer that begins in white blood cells called plasma cells. Multiple myeloma causes plasma cells to multiply rapidly, crowding out other blood cells from the bone marrow. Farydak helps to slow the over-development of the plasma cells.

This indication is approved under accelerated approval based on progression-free survival. Continued approval for this indication may be based upon verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials.

What doses of Farydak are available?

Farydak is available in capsule form, in the following doses: 10 mg, 15 mg, and 20 mg.

20 mg is taken orally once every other day for 3 doses per week (on Days 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, and 12) of Weeks 1 and 2 of each 21-day cycle for 8 cycles. Consider continuing treatment for another 8 cycles for patients with clinical benefit, unless they have unresolved severe or medically significant toxicity.

Please see the full prescribing information for the complete boxed warning and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
