Am I eligible for Glucagen patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Glucagen patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Glucagen enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Glucagen patient assistance program?

Applying for the Glucagen patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Glucagen, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Glucagen assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Glucagen patient assistance program, we will also request your Glucagen medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Glucagen coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide V coupons, discount cards, or copay cards. We do not offer printable Glucagen manufacturer coupons, Glucagen discounts, rebates, Glucagen savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Glucagen medication with NiceRx.

What is Glucagen?

Glucagen is used to treat low blood sugar. It is an emergency injection for diabetics. People with diabetes often suffer from low blood sugar due to various reasons. The problem can normally be fixed by eating carbohydrates but when dangerously low blood sugar levels are reached a glucagon injection is needed immediately. Having low blood sugar for too long can cause seizure, coma, or death.

Glucagen contains the prescription medicine glucagon,  a naturally occurring hormone. Glucagon makes the liver produce glucose quickly and release it into the bloodstream. Within 10 minutes the blood glucose levels increase. Glucagen should only be used to treat low blood sugar if the person is unable to eat, passes out, or is having a seizure.

Glucagen active ingredients

Glucagen injection comes in a bright orange case with picture instructions, a vial of glucagon, and a syringe. It is injected under the skin, into a muscle, or into a vein. Be certain you know how to give a Glucagen injection before you need to use it. A healthcare professional will show you how to do this. You need to make sure that your friends and family know what low blood sugar is and what to do about it. The people close to you will be glad to know how to help.

The dose for a child is lower than an adult dose and may also be based on how much the child weighs. Your doctor will give you careful instructions. After the injection, you should eat a fast-acting source of sugar e.g. fruit juice, hard candy, or raisins followed by a small meal.

Glucagen side effects

The most common side effects caused by Glucagen include:

  • Sickness
  • Swelling at point of injection

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

  • Blurred vision
  • Feeling anxious
  • Shaking
  • Slow speech
  • Weight loss

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

Glucagen drug interactions

Glucagen can interact with other medications. These include:

  • NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) – indomethacin
  • Beta-blockers for an irregular heartbeat – sotalol, propranolol, acebutolol, atenolol, betaxolol, bisoprolol, carteolol, propranolol, sotalol, timolol
  • Beta-blockers that reduce pressure in the eyes – betaxolol ophthalmic, carteolol ophthalmic, levobetaxolol ophthalmic, metipranolol ophthalmic, timolol ophthalmic

This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Glucagen.
