Am I eligible for Mylotarg patient assistance?

We review each Mylotarg 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 Mylotarg patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Mylotarg patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Mylotarg. You must also provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This 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 Mylotarg coupons provider?

NiceRx is not a Mylotarg coupon, Mylotarg discount card, or Mylotarg copay card provider. We do not offer Mylotarg manufacturer coupons, Mylotarg discounts, rebates, Mylotarg savings cards, trial offers, or free Mylotarg samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Mylotarg patient assistance program.

How much does Mylotarg cost without Insurance?

Mylotarg prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Mylotarg powder for injection 4.5 mg will cost around $9,400 for 1 powder for injection.

What is Mylotarg?

Mylotarg contains the prescription medicine gemtuzumab ozogamicin. It is classed as a monoclonal antibody meaning that it is a man-made antibody that works in the same way as natural human antibodies work in your body. Antibodies attack anything in your body that should not be there.

Mylotarg is used for the treatment of CD33-positive acute myeloid leukemia in adults and children aged 2 years and older when other treatments have not worked or have stopped working. Mylotarg is also used for the treatment of newly diagnosed CD33-positive acute myeloid leukemia in adults.

Mylotarg active ingredients

Gemtuzumab ozogamicin works in your body by attaching itself to cancer cells that release a chemical known as CD33. Once attached to the cancer cells a series of chemical reactions occur which lead to the breakdown of DNA in the cancer cells, causing them to die.

Mylotarg is given to you as an infusion directly into a vein by a healthcare professional. Your doctor will decide your treatment plan, as Mylotarg is only given on certain days of a treatment cycle. You should use Mylotarg only as your doctor has prescribed.

A Mylotarg infusion will take at least 2 hours to complete as the infusion is given slowly. You will be kept under observation for at least 1 hour after receiving Mylotarg, to make sure you do not have an infusion reaction. You may need to be given other medications to stop any side effects from using this treatment or from having the infusion itself. It is important to know that you will need regular medical tests while using Mylotarg as it can cause severe liver problems.

Mylotarg side effects

The most common side effects caused by Mylotarg include:

  • Nausea, vomiting, constipation

  • Bleeding gums, abnormal vaginal bleeding, blood in your urine or stools, coughing up blood, or vomit that looks like ground coffee
  • Sudden numbness or weakness down one side of the body, sudden severe headache, problems with speech or vision
