Your monthly Onexton cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible to receive your Onexton prescription through the patient assistance program, your medication will be free. We charge a flat monthly price of $49 per medication to cover the cost of our services.

Am I eligible for Onexton patient assistance?

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

Applying for the Onexton patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We’ll 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 Onexton, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Onexton assistance, we’ll handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We’ll work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Onexton patient assistance program, we’ll also automatically request your Onexton medication refills for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we’ll contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Onexton coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Onexton coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We don’t offer printable Onexton manufacturer coupons, Onexton discounts, rebates, Onexton 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’ll likely save more on your Onexton medication with NiceRx.

Can NiceRx help me get Onexton if I have insurance?

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

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Onexton
  • Your insurance company won’t pay for your Onexton prescription
  • You don’t have insurance

How much is Onexton with insurance?

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

Onexton prices without insurance will vary by retailer, but as a guide, one 50 gm pump container of Onexton 1.2%-3.75% gel will cost around $700.

What is Onexton?

Onexton is a prescription gel used by adults and children 12 and over to treat acne. It’s a topical gel, which means you apply Onexton directly to your affected skin. This is usually once a day, for up to 12 weeks. The medication contains an antibiotic and a skin treatment called benzoyl peroxide, that helps to clear your skin of sebum (the oil your skin naturally produces) and dead skin cells, reduce inflammation, and kill the bacteria inside your spots. Onexton can reduce the severity of your acne and make outbreaks less likely.

Onexton active ingredients

Onexton has two active ingredients, called clindamycin phosphate and benzoyl peroxide. They work together to clear skin cells and sebum from your follicles, kill the bacteria in your follicles, and reduce inflammation.

Clindamycin phosphate, usually just called clindamycin, is an antibiotic that can kill the bacteria in your spots and reduce inflammation. Clindamycin works by stopping the bacteria in your spots from reproducing by preventing them from copying their DNA (or RNA).

Benzoyl peroxide treats acne in three ways. It reduces how much sebum oil your follicles produce and helps to break down dead skin cells, reducing the chance your follicles will get blocked. It can also help to kill the bacteria in your spots.

Onexton side effects & Onexton drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Onexton include:

  • A burning sensation in the skin where you apply your Onexton
  • Skin redness
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • A rash

In rare instances, Onexton can cause more serious side effects, like:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication that can cause intense itching and swelling of your face, eyes, lips, tongue or throat, and this swelling can make it difficult to breathe
  • Inflammation of your colon (colitis) that can cause severe stomach cramps, and watery diarrhea or bloody diarrhea

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

Onexton can interact with other medications. This can change how Onexton and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. Medications that could interact with Onexton include:

  • Any other products you use on your skin
  • Any topical or oral medications that contain the antibiotic erythromycin
  • Any neuromuscular blocking medications used alongside anesthetics

Onexton warnings & precautions

Onexton can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and ultraviolet (UV) light. Avoid using UV tanning beds or lamps when taking Onexton. Stay out of strong sun, limit your time in the sun, and use sunscreen on treated skin if you have to be outdoors in the sun.

Avoid getting Onexton on your clothes or in your hair, as Onexton may bleach hair or colored fabrics.

Onexton should not be given to children under 12 years of age. Don’t take Onexton if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient clindamycin phosphate or benzoyl peroxide
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Onexton
  • Have an inflammatory bowel condition, like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis
  • Have ever had inflammation of the colon (colitis) or severe diarrhea caused by past antibiotic use

Talk to your doctor before taking Onexton if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Onexton
  • Are planning to have surgery or another procedure that will involve an anesthetic
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

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.
