This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Nuzyra 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 Nuzyra patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Nuzyra medication refills for up to 1 year.

Nuzyra is a tetracycline-class antibacterial indicated for the treatment of adult patients with the following infections caused by susceptible microorganisms:
