Am I eligible for the Ingrezza patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Ingrezza assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Ingrezza patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Ingrezza patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Ingrezza.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Ingrezza assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Ingrezza patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Ingrezza.
Is NiceRx an Ingrezza coupons provider?
NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Ingrezza patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Ingrezza samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Ingrezza coupons, discount cards, or Ingrezza copay cards.
Can NiceRx help me get Ingrezza if I have insurance?
NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Ingrezza medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much does Ingrezza cost with insurance?

What is Ingrezza?
Ingrezza is an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc., San Diego. It contains the prescription medicine valbenazine. Ingrezza is used for the treatment of a condition known as tardive dyskinesia in adults. Tardive dyskinesia is a nervous disorder that can develop due to the long-term use of antipsychotic drugs. Symptoms are the uncontrolled repetitive movement of muscles (akathisia) in the face, tongue, or other parts of the body.
Ingrezza is not a cure for tardive dyskinesia and it has not been established if it is safe for use or effective in children.
Ingrezza should be taken as prescribed by your doctor, with or without food. You may need to have an ECG (electrocardiograph) to check your heart function while taking this medicine. You are advised not to breastfeed while taking Ingrezza or for at least 5 days after you have stopped. You should not stop taking this medication unless your healthcare provider advises you to do so.
What doses of Ingrezza are available?
Ingrezza is available in capsule form, in the following doses: 40 mg and 80 mg. Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Ingrezza active ingredients
Valbenazine is thought to work by blocking the action of what is known as vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2). This transporter normally controls the movement of a chemical called monoamine from the cytoplasm in cells to synaptic vesicles for storage and release. Synaptic vesicles are involved in how electrical signals (nerve impulses) are sent through your body.
Clinical trials with Ingrezza show after 6 weeks of treatment, 40% of people taking the 80 mg capsule of Ingrezza daily had at least a 50% decrease in their symptoms. Compared to 8.7% of people taking a placebo had the same result.
The exact mechanism of action of valbenazine for the treatment of tardive dyskinesia is, however, not fully understood.
Ingrezza side effects
The most common side effects and adverse reactions caused by Ingrezza include:
- Anticholinergic effects – blurred vision, dizziness, balance disorders, dry mouth
- Increased risk of falls
- Arthralgia – joint stiffness
In rare instances, Ingrezza can cause more serious side effects. These can include:
- Heart rhythm problems (QT prolongation)
- Somnolence (sleepiness)
- Shortness of breath
- Feeling light-headed or faint
Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Ingrezza against your risk of side effects. You may report the side effects of prescription drugs to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
Ingrezza drug interactions
Ingrezza can interact with other medications. These include:
- Antidepressants known as SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) – paroxetine and fluoxetine
- Medication used to treat irregular heartbeats – quinidine and digoxin
- Antibiotics used for the treatment of bacterial infections – rifampin
- Medication that is taken to prevent seizures – carbamazepine and phenytoin
- St. John’s wort, a herbal medication used for depression and mood disorders
- Strong CYP3A4 such as itraconazole, ketoconazole, or clarithromycin
- Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) – isocarboxazid, phenelzine, selegiline
This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Ingrezza. Also, tell your doctor about any vitamins, herbs, and supplements you use.
