Am I eligible for the Neupro patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Neupro 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 Neupro patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Neupro patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Neupro. 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 Neupro 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 Neupro patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Neupro medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Neupro coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Neupro if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Neupro patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company will not pay for your Neupro 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 is Neupro with insurance?

The cost of Neupro with insurance depends on the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out how much this is, your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Neupro cost without insurance?

Neupro prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it and how much you buy. As a guide, Neupro extended-release (1 mg/24 hr) transdermal film usually costs $750 for 30 films. With NiceRx you will pay a flat monthly fee of $49, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

 What is Neupro?

Neupro contains the prescription medicine rotigotine, classed as a non-ergoline dopamine agonist. Rotigotine has a similar effect to dopamine, which is found naturally in your body.

Neupro patches are used for the treatment of:

  • Parkinson’s disease – a disease of the nervous system that can get worse over time. Symptoms include muscle stiffness, shaky or slow movement, with poor muscle control. It is thought to be linked to reduced amounts of dopamine in the brain.
  • Restless legs syndrome – symptoms are a twitching sensation in the leg muscles when sitting or lying down, once again linked to low levels of dopamine in the brain.

Neupro patches should be applied to clean, dry, hairless skin. The patch should be replaced with a new one every 24 hours. The new patch should be placed on a different place on your body. The same area of skin should not be used twice within 14 days.

Neupro active ingredients

Rotigotine is classed as a non-ergoline dopamine agonist. Dopamine agonists work by imitating the action of dopamine in the brain by binding to dopamine receptors that help to control the body’s ability to move properly.

Exactly how rotigotine works in the body for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease or restless legs syndrome is not fully understood. However, it is thought to be linked to rotigotine’s capacity to stimulate the dopamine receptors in the brain.

Neupro side effects

The most common side effects caused by Neupro include:

  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Headache, dizziness, problems with vision, feeling drowsy
  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia (trouble sleeping)
  • Skin reaction where the patch is worn
  • Increased sweating
  • Rapid weight gain
  • Swollen hands or feet

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

  • Severe skin reaction that will not go away
  • Increased heart rate
  • Feeling light-headed or faint
  • Increased libido (desire for sex), other intense urges, unusual behavior, agitation, confusion, paranoia, hallucinations
  • Extreme drowsiness, suddenly falling asleep
  • Unable to control muscle movements

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