Your monthly Motegrity cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible to receive your Motegrity 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 Motegrity patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Motegrity patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Motegrity 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 Motegrity patient assistance program?

Applying for the Motegrity patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We’ll 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 Motegrity, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

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

Is NiceRx a Motegrity coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Motegrity coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We don’t offer printable Motegrity manufacturer coupons, Motegrity discounts, rebates, Motegrity 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’ll likely save more on your Motegrity medication with NiceRx.

Can NiceRx help me get Motegrity if I have insurance?

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

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Motegrity
  • Your insurance company won’t pay for your Motegrity prescription
  • You don’t have insurance

How much is Motegrity with insurance?

Your individual healthcare plan will determine the cost of Motegrity 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 Motegrity cost without insurance?

Motegrity prices without insurance will vary by retailer, but as a guide, a pack of 30, 1 mg or 2 mg Motegrity tablets can cost over $500. With Prescription Care you’ll always pay a flat monthly fee of $49.

What is Motegrity?

Motegrity is a prescription medicine given to adults to treat chronic idiopathic constipation. Chronic idiopathic constipation can be treated by making lifestyle changes, like eating more dietary fiber, increasing water intake, and taking regular physical exercise. But often this may prove insufficient, particularly with stubborn cases. If you have chronic idiopathic constipation, your doctor may have prescribed Motegrity to you.

Motegrity is a medication you take as a pill you swallow, usually once a day when needed. It increases the speed at which food moves through your bowels, helping you have more frequent and regular bowel movements.

Motegrity active ingredients

The active ingredient in Motegrity is called prucalopride. It’s a type of drug called a serotonin receptor agonist that can speed up how quickly food moves through your digestive system. Muscles in your bowels rhythmically contract (tighten) and relax, to move food through your bowels. This process is called peristalsis, and if it happens too slowly, it can cause constipation as the food in your bowels hardens over time. Motegrity can help to stop this from happening.

When you take Motegrity, the active ingredient prucalopride is released into your bowels. It attaches to areas on the outside of the cells in your bowels called 5-HT4 serotonin receptors. This stimulates the receptors, making them produce a natural substance called acetylcholine. The acetylcholine makes your bowel muscle contract faster, speeding up peristalsis and how quickly food moves through your bowels.

Motegrity side effects & Motegrity drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Motegrity include:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Flatulence (gas)
  • Feeling bloated
  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Vomiting (being sick)
  • Diarrhea

Occasionally, Motegrity can cause more serious side effects. When this happens, you may experience:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication can cause swelling of your tongue, mouth, or throat, which can make it difficult to breathe
  • Changes in your mental state, including depression and suicidal thoughts and actions

These aren’t all the side effects Motegrity can cause. You can read more about Motegrity side effects in the leaflet that comes with your medication, or you can talk to your doctor.

Motegrity can interact with other medications. This can change how it and the other medications work. It can even make some side effects more likely, and more serious. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, particularly:

  • Any other medications you’re taking to treat your constipation
  • Any medications that can increase the risk of diarrhea, including laxatives, medicines for stomach ulcers, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen or naproxen

Motegrity warnings & precautions

Motegrity can increase your risk of suicidal thoughts and suicide. If you take Motegrity, tell your friends and family members about this risk. Seek urgent medical attention if you, or someone you care for, feels they are at risk of suicide.

Motegrity can cause dizziness which can affect your ability to drive, operate machinery, or perform other dangerous tasks. Avoid doing so when taking Motegrity until you’re sure it doesn’t affect you in this way.

Motegrity isn’t suitable for everyone. Don’t take Motegrity if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient prucalopride, or any of the other ingredients in Motegrity
  • Have a blockage in your stomach or bowels (intestinal obstruction)
  • Have a tear in your stomach or bowels (bowel perforation)
  • Have a serious bowel disease, such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis
  • Are under 18 years of age

Talk to your doctor before taking Motegrity if you:

  • Have or have ever had depression
  • Have or have ever had suicidal thoughts or have tried to commit suicide
  • Have any kidney problems
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
