Am I eligible for Onglyza patient assistance?

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

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

If we determine that you may be eligible for Onglyza 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 Onglyza patient assistance program, we’ll also automatically request your Onglyza 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 Onglyza coupons provider?

What is Onglyza?

Onglyza is a prescription medication given to adults with type 2 diabetes to help lower their blood sugar (glucose) when used with exercise and diet changes. The medication causes your pancreas to release more insulin when you’re digesting food and drink, and stops your liver from releasing stored glucose back into your blood. You take Onglyza as a tablet you swallow, usually once a day, as directed by your doctor or pharmacist.

More information on what is Onglyza and Onglyza dosage

Onglyza active ingredients

The active ingredient in Onglyza is called saxagliptin. Rather than being a form of insulin, saxagliptin is a type of drug called a DPP-4 inhibitor.

When you digest food and drink, your stomach and gut produce digestive hormones called incretins. These hormones make your pancreas secrete insulin and stop your liver from releasing stored glucose into your blood. Over time, these incretin hormones are naturally broken down in your digestive system by DPP-4 enzymes to allow your digestion to return to normal.

However, when you take Onglyza, the saxagliptin it contains attaches to and blocks the DPP-4 enzymes, stopping them from working. This keeps your incretin hormones active for longer when you’re digesting, encouraging your pancreas to produce more insulin and your liver to release less glucose. This can help to lower your blood glucose after eating and drinking. Saxagliptin is less active when you’re not digesting, which can help avoid your blood glucose falling too low between meals.

Onglyza side effects & Onglyza drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Onglyza include:

  • Headaches
  • Fluid retention can cause swelling of the extremities like your hands and feet
  • An increased risk of upper respiratory chest infections, like colds or the flu
  • An increased risk of urinary tract infections
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) – this is more likely if you take Onglyza with other diabetes medications, like insulin or sulfonylureas

Sometimes Onglyza can cause more serious side effects. These are rarer but they can include:

  • Heart failure
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication can cause swelling of your face, lips, tongue or throat, making it difficult to breathe
  • Inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis), which can be severe, and in some cases, fatal
  • Joint pain that can become severe
  • Skin reactions that cause blisters, as well as the breakdown and loss of the outer layer of your skin

Onglyza can interact with the following other medications:

  • Insulin or any other medications for type 2 diabetes
  • Any anticonvulsant medications taken to reduce the chances of you having seizures, like carbamazepine, phenobarbital, or phenytoin
  • Any antiviral medications you take to treat an HIV infection, including ritonavir, atazanavir, indinavir, saquinavir, or nelfinavir
  • Any antibiotics taken to treat bacterial infections, including rifampicin, clarithromycin, or telithromycin,
  • Any antifungal medications taken to treat fungal infections, including ketoconazole and itraconazole
