What is Hymovis?

Hymovis (hyaluronan) is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A. It is a sterile, non-pyrogenic, high molecular weight, viscoelastic hydrogel derivative product, used for intra-articular injection.

Hymovis is similar to the synovial fluid that surrounds the joints in your body. This fluid normally acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the joints. Hymovis is used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis of the knee. It is usually given after other pain relief treatments such as non-pharmacologic therapy or simple analgesics such as NSAIDs or acetaminophen have failed to work.

The safety and effectiveness of the use of Hymovis in joints other than the knee, or for use concomitantly with other intra-articular injections, have not been established. The effectiveness of repeat treatment cycles of Hymovis has not been established.

What doses of Hymovis are available?

Hymovis is available in injection form, in the following doses: 30 mg/2 mL, 88 mg/4 mL, and 24 mg/3 mL.

Hymovis is injected directly into your knee joint. A healthcare provider will give you this injection. Hymovis will be administered in a convenient 2-injection regimen, with additional injections usually given at least 1 week after your first injection. Joint effusion should be removed prior to injection of Hymovis.

Always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Hymovis active ingredients

The active ingredient of Hymovis is hyaluronic acid, which is classed as a viscosupplementation agent.

Hymovis side effects

The most common side effects of Hymovis in clinical trials compared to placebo include:

  • Arthralgia (joint pain), back pain, stiffness, or swelling
  • Malaise, headache, dizziness
  • Itching, numbness, or tingling
  • Swelling, pain, redness, or mild discomfort at injection site

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

  • Bleeding
  • Increased knee pain
  • Infection around your knee (warmth, swelling, redness)

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Hymovis against your risk of adverse events. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Hymovis to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Hymovis drug interactions

Hymovis can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Benzalkonium chloride topical
  • Cetylpyridinium topical

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

Hymovis contraindications

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient hyaluronic acid hexadecylamide
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Hymovis
  • Have a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronate
  • Have a bleeding disorder
  • Have an infection in your knee or in the skin around your knee

Hymovis is the trademark brand name for hyaluronic acid hexadecylamide manufactured by Fidia Farmaceutici S.p.A., Abano Terme, Italy, owned by Fidia Pharma USA Inc.

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
