Am I eligible for Lampit patient assistance?

We review each Lampit 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 Lampit patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Lampit patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Lampit, 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 Lampit coupon provider?

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

What is Lampit?

Lampit is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Bayer. Lampit is a nitrofuran antiprotozoal, with FDA approval to be used in pediatric patients (birth to less than 18 years of age and weighing at least 2.5 kg) for the treatment of Chagas disease (American Trypanosomiasis). Chagas disease is an infectious disease caused by the single-celled Trypanosoma cruzi (T. cruzi) parasite. The disease spreads to humans by the feces of blood-sucking carrier bugs called triatomines or kissing bugs.

What doses of Lampit are available?

Lampit is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 30 mg, 120 mg.

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

Lampit active ingredients
