Am I eligible for the Odefsey patient assistance program?

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

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Odefsey patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Odefsey. 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 Odefsey assistance, we’ll handle the application process for you. We’ll 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’re enrolled in the Odefsey patient assistance program, and we’ll automatically request your Odefsey medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx an Odefsey coupons provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Odefsey patient

Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Odefsey if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Odefsey patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company won’t pay for your Odefsey medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you don’t have insurance.

How much is Odefsey with insurance?

The cost of Odefsey 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 Odefsey cost without insurance?

Odefsey prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it and the amount you purchase. As a guide, a pack of 30, 200-25-25 mg Odefsey tablets will cost around $3,500. With NiceRx you’ll pay a flat monthly fee of $49, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

What is Odefsey?

Odefsey is a prescription medication used to treat an HIV-1 infection. It’s given to adults, and to children who weigh at least 77 pounds (35kg). It’s prescribed as:

  • A first HIV-1 treatment in patients with a viral load of no more than 100,000 copies per ml, or:
  • To replace a previous HIV-1 treatment in patients who meet certain requirements decided on by their healthcare provider

If you have an HIV-1 infection, your doctor may have prescribed Odefsey to you to help treat it. Odefsey can’t cure an HIV-1 infection, but it can help to reduce how much of the virus you have in your body (your viral load), limiting the damage it can do to your immune system. You take Odefsey as a tablet you swallow, usually once a day, but always make sure you take the medication exactly as directed by the doctor who prescribed it to you.

Odefsey active ingredients

Odefsey contains three active ingredients called emtricitabine, rilpivirine, and tenofovir alafenamide. They’re antiviral drugs that can stop the spread of the HIV-1 virus through your T-cells.

When the HIV-1 virus invades your T-cells, it inserts itself into their DNA. The virus then takes advantage of the cells’ natural DNA copying process to make copies of itself. As more copies of the virus are made, eventually the T-cell dies, and the viruses spread to other T-cells, continuing the cycle. Odefsey helps to stop this from happening.

Emtricitabine, rilpivirine, and tenofovir alafenamide each interrupt a step in the DNA copying process that copies the viruses. They do this by blocking different enzymes involved in the copying process. This makes it harder for the virus to multiply, limiting the amount of virus you have in your body.

Odefsey side effects & Odefsey drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Odefsey include headaches and problems sleeping (insomnia). Those that take the medication can also potentially experience more serious side effects, like:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • Severe skin rashes
  • A worsening or reemergence of an existing hepatitis B infection if you have or previously have had one
  • New or worsening kidney problems, including kidney failure
  • New or worsening liver problems, including liver failure
  • Too much lactic acid in your blood (lactic acidosis), that can cause serious health problems and can be fatal
  • A strengthening of your immune system (immune reconstitution syndrome) – your immune system may fight infections that have been hidden in your body for a long time
  • Depression

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

Odefsey can interact with other medications, including:

  • An antibiotic called rifampin
  • An antibiotic called rifapentine
  • Any anticonvulsant medications taken to reduce the chances of you having seizures, like carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, phenobarbital, or phenytoin
  • Esomeprazole, dexlansoprazole, lansoprazole, omeprazole, pantoprazole sodium, rabeprazole, taken to reduce stomach acid production to treat gastroesophageal-reflux-disease, stomach ulcers, and other stomach conditions
  • Dexamethasone, a corticosteroid taken to treat a range of inflammatory autoimmune diseases
  • An herbal supplement called St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum)

Odefsey warnings & precautions

Odefsey should not be used to treat an HIV-1 infection in children who weigh less than 77 pounds (35kg). Don’t take Odefsey if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredients emtricitabine, rilpivirine, or tenofovir alafenamide
