  • 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 Imbruvica patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Imbruvica patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Imbruvica. You must also provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Imbruvica is an expensive medication and can cost over $14,000 for a month’s supply.

What is Imbruvica?

Imbruvica is a prescription cancer medication used to treat adults with:

  • Mantle cell lymphoma
  • Marginal zone lymphoma
  • Small lymphocytic lymphoma
  • Chronic lymphocytic leukemia
  • Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia

The cancers treated by Imbruvica are primarily caused by the spread of cancerous white blood cells called B-cells. Your doctor may have prescribed Imbruvica to you if you have a B-cell cancer and you meet the requirements of Imbruvica prescription. It is a non-chemotherapy cancer medication you take as either a capsule or pill once a day. It helps treat your cancer by causing your cancerous B-cells to self-terminate. This helps to reduce the number of cancerous B-cells you have in your body, limiting how much damage they can cause to your immune system and other organs.

Imbruvica active ingredients

The active ingredient in Imbruvica is called ibrutinib. Ibrutinib is a non-chemotherapy cancer medication, classed as a kinase inhibitor.

It works by attaching to a specific protein inside your B-cells that the cells need to function. Ibrutinib blocks this protein and disrupts the internal processes of B-cells. Ibrutinib prevents B-cells growth and spread. This reduces how many cancerous B-cells you have in your body.

Imbruvica side effects

The most common side effects caused by Imbruvica include:

  • Feeling sick (nausea)
  • Diarrhea
  • Tiredness
  • Muscle and bone pain
  • Bruising
  • Skin rashes
  • Muscle spasms
  • Sores in the mouth
  • Upper respiratory tract infection

In rarer instances, Imbruvica can cause more serious side effects. They include:

  • Serious heart rhythm problems, including ventricular arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter, that can result in heart failure and death
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • A fall in blood platelet counts that can stop your blood clotting and lead to bleeding that won’t stop, including serious bleeding
  • A fall in white blood cell counts that can make you more vulnerable to infections, including serious infections
  • A serious condition called tumor lysis syndrome caused by the rapid breakdown of cancer cells that can cause kidney failure, seizures, and heart rhythm problems
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

Imbruvica drug interactions

Imbruvica can interact with other medications, particularly:

  • Any central nervous system depressant medications, usually taken to treat anxiety, other mood disorders, acute stress reactions, and sleep disorders
  • Any antiviral medications take to treat a hepatitis C infection, including boceprevir or telaprevir
  • Any other antiviral medications taken to treat another viral infection
  • Any antibiotics taken to treat a bacterial infection, including rifampicin, clarithromycin, or telithromycin
  • Any antifungal medications taken to treat a fungal infection, including ketoconazole and itraconazole
  • Any anticonvulsant medications taken to reduce the chances of you having seizures, like carbamazepine, phenobarbital, or phenytoin
  • Digitalis, a type of medication used to stimulate the heart
  • St John’s-wort (Hypericum perforatum)
  • Grapefruits, grapefruit juice, or products that contain grapefruit
  • Seville oranges, juice from Seville oranges, or products that contain Seville oranges, like marmalades

Imbruvica warning and precautions

Don’t eat grapefruits or Seville oranges or consume any products that contain either (like marmalade). You should also not drink grapefruit juice or juice from Seville oranges whilst taking Imbruvica. Grapefruits and Seville oranges contain a substance that can increase the amount of Imbruvica in your blood, making side effects more likely.

Imbruvica is not suitable for everyone. Do not take Imbruvica if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient ibrutinib
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Imbruvica
  • Are under 18 years of age

Talk to your doctor before taking Imbruvica if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Imbruvica
  • Have or have had liver disease
  • Have an infection
  • Have a blood clotting or bleeding disorder
  • Have any heart problems or have any heart risk factors such as diabetes, smoking, being overweight, or high cholesterol
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed
