If you are eligible to receive your Lotemax prescription through the patient assistance program, your medication will be free. We charge a flat monthly price of $49 per medication to cover the cost of our services.

Am I eligible for Lotemax patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Lotemax patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx we review each Lotemax enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Lotemax patient assistance program?

Applying for the Lotemax patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Lotemax, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Lotemax assistance we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Lotemax patient assistance program we will also automatically request your Lotemax medication refills for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Lotemax coupon provider?

NiceRx does not provide Lotemax coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Lotemax manufacturer coupons, Lotemax discounts, rebates, Lotemax savings cards, trial offers or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Lotemax medication with NiceRx.

NiceRx may be able to help you access Lotemax patient assistance if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Lotemax

How much is Lotemax with insurance?

Your individual healthcare plan will determine the cost of Lotemax with insurance. To find out what you will need to pay contact your pharmacist or insurance provider. They will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Lotemax cost without insurance?

Lotemax prices without insurance will vary by retailer, but as a guide, one 5ml bottle of 0.5% Lotemax ophthalmic solution will typically cost around $300.

What is Lotemax?

Lotemax is an eye medicine given to adults to treat discomfort and inflammation in the eye and the eyelids. It can be used to treat inflammation caused by an eye injury, eye surgery or conditions like allergic conjunctivitis or rosacea.

If you have inflammation in one or both eyes, or in your eyelids, your doctor may prescribe Lotemax to you if they believe your inflammation will respond to a corticosteroid. Lotemax is a prescription medication you put into your eyes as a liquid solution using a dropper bottle. The medication contains a corticosteroid, a type of hormone that can reduce inflammation and ease your symptoms. Your doctor will tell you how much Lotemax to use and for how long based on their assessment of your condition.

Lotemax active ingredients

The active ingredient in Lotemax is called loteprednol etabonate. It is a type of corticosteroid medicine that can reduce inflammation. When you apply Lotemax to your eye or eyelids, the loteprednol etabonate it contains attaches to the outside of cells in your eye or eyelids at sites called glucocorticoid receptors. This stimulates the receptors causing the cells to produce and release anti-inflammatory proteins that help reduce inflammation in your eyes or eyelids.

Lotemax side effects

As with all medications Lotemax can cause side effects. Only some people get side effects however, and these side effects can vary by person.

The most common side effects caused by Lotemax include:

  • An increase in pressure inside the eye (elevated intraocular pressure)
  • Blurring of your vision when you apply Lotemax
  • Irritation when you apply Lotemax
  • A burning sensation when you apply Lotemax
  • Discharge from the eyes
  • Excess watering from the eyes
  • Dry eyes
  • A feeling that something is in your eye (foreign body sensation)
  • Increased sensitivity to bright light (photophobia)
  • Headaches
  • Inflammation in the nose (rhinitis) that can cause a stuffy nose, a runny nose and sneezing
  • A sore throat (pharyngitis)

Sometimes Lotemax can cause more serious side effects. While these are rarer they can include:

  • An increase in pressure inside the eye (elevated intraocular pressure) to a level that can cause damage. This damage could include cataracts, glaucoma and damage to the optic nerve.
  • Allergic reactions to the medication.

Lotemax drug interactions

Lotemax can interact with other medications. This can change how Lotemax and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing doctor about all drugs you are taking, including vitamins and herbal and dietary supplements, particularly:

  • Any other products you put into your eyes
  • Any medications that contain a corticosteroid or other form of steroid

Lotemax warning and precautions

Using Lotemax for long periods can increase your risk of eye infections and eye damage. Do not use Lotemax for more than 10 days at a time. Talk to your doctor if you see no improvement after 2 days of using Lotemax.

Avoid wearing soft contact lenses while using Lotemax. Do not take the medication if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient loteprednol etabonate
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Lotemax
  • Are allergic to any corticosteroids
  • Have a viral eye infection
  • Have a fungal eye infection
  • Have a mycobacterial eye infection

  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed
