Your monthly Jevtana cost savings if eligible

With our assistance, you could access the Jevtana patient assistance program and obtain your medication for free. We only charge a flat monthly fee of $49 per medication for our services.

Am I eligible for Jevtana patient assistance?

We review each Jevtana enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and the 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 the Jevtana patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Jevtana patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Jevtana, your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information 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.

Is NiceRx a Jevtana coupons provider?

NiceRx is not a Jevtana coupon, Jevtana discount card, or Jevtana copay card provider. We do not offer Jevtana manufacturer coupons, Jevtana discounts, rebates, Jevtana savings cards, trial offers, or free Jevtana samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access their medication directly from the U.S. pharmaceutical company.

Can NiceRx help me if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Jevtana
  • Your insurance company will not pay for your Jevtana prescription
  • Your healthcare plan does not cover your medication
  • You do not have insurance

Please apply online to find out if we can help you.

How much does Jevtana cost with insurance?

The copay for Jevtana will depend on the terms of your healthcare plan. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Contact them to find out more.

What is Jevtana?

Jevtana is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis U.S. LLC. Jevtana is a microtubule inhibitor used in combination with prednisone for the treatment of patients with hormone-refractory metastatic prostate cancer previously treated with a docetaxel-containing treatment regimen.

See the full prescribing information for a complete boxed warning:

  • Neutropenic – do not give Jevtana if neutrophil counts are ≤1,500 cells/mm3
  • Severe hypersensitivity can occur and may include generalized rash/erythema, hypotension, and bronchospasm
  • Contraindicated if there is a history of severe hypersensitivity reactions to Jevtana or to drugs formulated with polysorbate 80

What doses of Jevtana are available?

Jevtana is available as single-use vials 60 mg/1.5 mL, supplied with diluent (5.7 mL).

The recommended dose is 25 mg/m2 administered every three weeks as a one-hour intravenous infusion, in combination with oral prednisone 10 mg, administered daily throughout Jevtana treatment.

Use the entire contents of the accompanying diluent to achieve a concentration of 10 mg/mL. PVC equipment should not be used.

Premedication regimen – administer intravenously 30 minutes before each dose of Jevatana:

  • Antihistamine (dexchlorpheniramine 5 mg or diphenhydramine 25 mg or equivalent antihistamine)
  • Corticosteroid (dexamethasone 8 mg or equivalent steroid)
  • H2 antagonist (ranitidine 50 mg or equivalent H2 antagonist)

Antiemetic prophylaxis (oral or intravenous) is recommended as needed. Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Jevtana active ingredients

The active ingredient of Jevtana is cabazitaxel, an antineoplastic agent belonging to the taxane class that is for intravenous use.

Jevtana side effects

The most common side effects of Jevtana in clinical trials include:

  • Neutropenia (low white blood cells)
  • Anemia (low red blood cell counts)
  • Leukopenia
  • Thrombocytopenia (decreased platelets)
  • Diarrhea, tiredness, nausea, vomiting, constipation

  • Back pain
  • Anorexia
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Pyrexia
  • Dyspnea
  • Dysgeusia, cough, shortness of breath
  • Alopecia (hair loss)

In rare instances, Jevtana can cause more serious adverse reactions. These can include:

  • Febrile neutropenia – monitor blood counts frequently to determine if initiation of G-CSF and/or dosage modification is needed. Primary prophylaxis with G-CSF should be considered in patients with high-risk clinical features
  • Severe hypersensitivity reactions – premedicated with corticosteroids and H2 antagonists. Discontinue infusion immediately if hypersensitivity is observed and treat as indicated
  • Gastrointestinal symptoms
  • Renal failure, including cases with fatal outcomes, has been reported
  • Elderly patients ≥ 65 years of age are more likely to experience fatal outcomes not related to disease progression and certain adverse reactions
  • Hepatic impairment is likely to increase cabazitaxel concentrations
  • Can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman

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