Am I eligible for Qelbree patient assistance?

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

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

If we determine that you may be eligible for Qelbree 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 Qelbree patient assistance program, we will also request your Qelbree medication refills on your behalf 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.

What is Qelbree?

Qelbree (viloxazine extended-release capsules) is an FDA-approved non-stimulant medication manufactured by Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc for adolescents between 6 to 17 years of age and indicated for the treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Qelbree met the goal of 3 different clinical trials – a significant reduction in ADHD symptom scores in 6 weeks. For some patients, Qelbree reduced ADHD symptom scores as early as week 1.

Qelbree is a selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. It is presented as an extended-release capsule in various doses and is administered orally, with or without food.

The mechanism of action of Qelbree in the treatment of ADHD is unclear, however, it is thought to work by inhibiting the reuptake of norepinephrine.

Qelbree is a new non-controlled substance.

What doses of Qelbree are available?

Qelbree is available in extended-release capsule form, in the following doses: 100mg (yellow opaque body and cap containing 115mg of viloxazine hydrochloride salt), 150mg (lavender opaque body and cap containing 173mg of viloxazine hydrochloride salt), and 200mg (light green opaque body and cap containing 231mg of viloxazine hydrochloride salt).

For pediatric patients 6 to 11 years of age, the recommended starting dosage is 100 mg once daily. Patients may be titrated in increments of 100 mg weekly to the maximum recommended dosage of 400 mg once daily.

For pediatric patients 12 to 17 years of age: Recommended starting dosage is 200 mg once daily. May titrate after 1 week, by an increment of 200mg, to the maximum recommended dosage of 400 mg once daily.

In patients with severe renal impairment, the initial dosage is 100 mg once daily. Patients may be titrated in weekly increments of 50 mg to 100 mg to a maximum recommended dosage of 200 mg once daily.

Patients should swallow capsules whole or open the capsule and sprinkle the entire contents onto a teaspoon of applesauce.

Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
