Am I eligible for the Lucemyra patient assistance program?

You could receive your Lucemyra without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx, we review each application individually, although the main 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 Lucemyra patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Lucemyra.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Lucemyra patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Lucemyra medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Lucemyra patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Lucemyra coupon, a Lucemyra discount card, or a Lucemyra copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers, or free Lucemyra samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Lucemyra if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Lucemyra medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

What is Lucemyra?

Lucemyra is an FDA (Food and drug administration) approved medication manufactured by US WorldMeds, LLC for patients above 18 years of age, used to help in the mitigation of opioid withdrawal symptoms that may happen when patients stop taking an opioid suddenly (abrupt opioid discontinuation). Lucemyra will not completely prevent the symptoms of opioid withdrawal and is not a treatment for opioid use disorder (OUD).

Lucemyra is a central alpha-2 adrenergic agonist. Its mechanism of action is to decrease the release of norepinephrine by binding to receptors on adrenergic neurons. This reduces the neurochemical surge that produces withdrawal symptoms.

Symptoms of opioid withdrawal include:

  • Aches and pains
  • Stomach cramps
  • Feeling sick
  • Muscle spasms/twitching
  • Insomnia/problems sleeping
  • A feeling of coldness/chills
  • Muscular tension
  • Heart pounding
  • Runny eyes
  • Yawning

What doses of Lucemyra are available?

Lucemyra is available in 0.18mg oral tablet form.

The usual Lucemyra dosage is three 0.18 mg tablets (0.54mg) taken orally 4 times daily at 5- to 6-hour intervals. Lucemyra treatment may be continued for up to 14 days with dosing guided by symptoms.

Lucemyra use is discontinued by gradual dose reduction over 2 to 4 days.

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

Lucemyra active ingredients

Lucemyra is available as round, peach-colored, film-coated tablets, imprinted with “LFX” on one side and “18” on the other side. Each tablet contains 0.18 mg lofexidine (equivalent to 0.2 mg of lofexidine hydrochloride).

Lucemyra side effects

  • Hypotension (low blood pressure) symptoms such as lightheadedness

  • Syncope (fainting or passing out)
  • Long QT Syndrome (heart rhythm condition)
  • Central Nervous System Depression
  • Opioid Overdose
  • Discontinuation Symptoms

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

  • Ringing in the ears
  • Severe allergic reaction

If your experience any adverse effects, you should contact your healthcare provider immediately.

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Lucemyra against your risk of side effects.

Lucemyra drug interactions

Lucemyra can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Oral Naltrexone: Concomitant use may reduce the efficacy of oral naltrexone
  • CYP2D6 Inhibitors: Concomitant use of paroxetine resulted in increased
    plasma levels of Lucemyra. Monitor for symptoms of orthostasis
    and bradycardia with concomitant use of a CYP2D6 inhibitor

This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Lucemyra.
