Your monthly Locoid cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Locoid patient assistance program, the cost of your medication will be free. We only charge $49 per month for each medication, to cover our service fees. You could receive your Locoid prescription for just $49 a month, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Locoid patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Locoid patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however, 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 Locoid patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Locoid patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Locoid. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Locoid assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Locoid patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Locoid medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Locoid coupon provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Locoid patient assistance program. That means that we do not offer printable Locoid manufacturer coupons, Locoid discounts, or free Locoid samples. We are not a Locoid coupon provider or Locoid discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Locoid cheaper if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Locoid patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company will not pay for your Locoid medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you do not have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.

How much does Locoid cost with insurance?

What is Locoid?

Locoid Lotion is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Triax Pharmaceuticals, LLC. Locoid Lotion is a topical steroid (corticosteroid) indicated for the topical treatment of mild to moderate skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis (eczema) in patients 3 months of age and older.

What doses of Locoid are available?

Locoid Lotion is available in lotion form, in the following doses: 0.1% (1 mg/g), supplied in bottles of 2 fl. oz. and 4 fl. oz.

Apply a thin layer to the affected area two times daily. Discontinue when control is achieved and reassess diagnosis if no improvement is seen within 2 weeks. Before prescribing for more than 2 weeks, any additional benefits of extending treatment to 4 weeks should be weighed against the risk of HPA axis suppression and local adverse events. The safety and efficacy of Locoid Lotion have not been established beyond 4 weeks of use. Avoid use under occlusive dressings or in the diaper area. Locoid Lotion is not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.

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

Locoid active ingredients

The active ingredient of Locoid Lotion is hydrocortisone butyrate.

Locoid side effects

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

  • Application site reactions
  • Skin irritation – burning, itching, irritation, dryness, folliculitis, erythema, hypertrichosis, acneiform eruptions, hypopigmentation, perioral dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, maceration of the skin, secondary infection, skin atrophy, striae, and miliaria

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

  • Reversible hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis suppression – reduce the application frequency, discontinue use, or switch to a lower potency corticosteroid
  • Systemic effects – Cushing’s syndrome, hyperglycemia, and glucosuria
  • Systemic toxicity in pediatric patients due to their larger skin surface-to-body-mass ratios
  • Skin infections

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