Am I eligible for Nuplazid patient assistance?

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

Applying for the Nuplazid 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 Nuplazid, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Nuplazid 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 Nuplazid patient assistance program, we will also request your Nuplazid 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 Nuplazid coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Nuplazid coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Nuplazid manufacturer coupons, Nuplazid discounts, rebates, Nuplazid 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 Nuplazid medication with NiceRx.

Can NiceRx help me get Nuplazid if I have insurance?

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

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Nuplazid
  • Your insurance company will not pay for your Nuplazid prescription
  • You do not have insurance

How much is Nuplazid with insurance?

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

Nuplazid prices without insurance will depend on the form of Nuplazid you buy (oral capsules or oral tablets). Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, 34 mg Nuplazid oral capsules will typically cost around $1,900 for 15 capsules.

What is Nuplazid?

Nuplazid is an atypical antipsychotic medication prescribed to adults to treat hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease psychosis.

If you have Parkinson’s disease and associated hallucinations and/or delusions your doctor may prescribe Nuplazid. The medication can ease hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease by reducing the effect that serotonin has on brain function. Nuplazid is taken as a tablet or capsule you swallow, typically once a day. Your prescribing doctor will tell you precisely how much Nuplazid to take and how often, based on your condition and medical history.

Nuplazid active ingredients

The active ingredient in Nuplazid is called pimavanserin. It is an atypical antipsychotic medicine that can ease psychotic symptoms like hallucinations and delusions by dampening the effect of serotonin on your brain. When you take Nuplazid the pimavanserin it contains travels through your bloodstream to your brain. Pimavanserin then gets to work by binding to the outside of your brain cells (neurons) at sites called serotonin receptors.

Serotonin is a natural substance released by your brain cells that helps them to communicate and regulate brain function in areas involved in mood and cognition. By binding to serotonin receptors, pimavanserin blocks the action of serotonin and lowers the effect it has on your brain cells. This has been shown to ease the hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease.

Nuplazid side effects

The most common side effects caused by Nuplazid include:

  • Swelling in your hands, lower leg, or feet
  • Confusion and problems thinking clearly

In rarer instances, Nuplazid can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • A change to your heart rhythm called QT interval prolongation
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication

Your doctor will assess the benefits of taking Nuplazid against your risk of side effects.

Nuplazid drug interactions

Nuplazid can interact with other medications. This can change how Nuplazid and the other medications work. It can also make some side effects more likely and more serious. These medications include:

  • Any medications you take to treat a heart rhythm disorder such as amiodarone, flecainide, sotalol
  • Any antidepressant medications such as amitryptiline, citalopram, sertraline
  • Any medications you take to treat high blood pressure, alpha-blockers, beta-blockers, or calcium channel blockers
  • Any antiviral medications taken to treat an HIV infection, including ritonavir, atazanavir, indinavir, saquinavir, or nelfinavir
  • Any antiviral medications taken to treat a hepatitis C infection, including boceprevir or telaprevir
  • Any other antiviral medications taken to treat viral infections
  • Any antibiotics taken to treat a bacterial infection, including rifampicin, clarithromycin, or telithromycin
  • Any antifungal medications taken to treat a fungal infection, including ketoconazole and itraconazole
  • Any anticonvulsant medications taken to reduce the chances of you having seizures, like carbamazepine, phenobarbital, or phenytoin
  • St John’s-wort

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.
