Your monthly Quviviq cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Quviviq patient assistance program you can receive your medication for free. Our monthly service fee of $49 per medication covers the cost of our services in applying for the program and requesting your ongoing refills on your behalf. If you obtain your Quviviq through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Quviviq patient assistance program?

You could receive your Quviviq without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. The eligibility requirements are set by the pharmaceutical companies that are providing assistance programs. At NiceRx, we review each application individually, although the main 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 Quviviq patient assistance?

We do everything that we can to take the hassle and stress out of applying for patient assistance programs. Simply start by filling in our enrollment application. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical companies you are applying to for assistance. We may also be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications that you have been prescribed, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Quviviq.

NiceRx will review the information you have provided, and if we determine that you may be eligible for assistance, we will seek to enroll you in the Quviviq patient assistance program. We will handle the enrollment process for you by working with your healthcare provider and preparing all the required paperwork for your doctor to sign. We will also request your Quviviq medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Quviviq coupon provider?

At NiceRx, we help eligible individuals access the Quviviq patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Quviviq coupon, a Quviviq discount card, or a Quviviq copay card provider. We do not offer any medication trial offers or free Quviviq samples.

Can NiceRx help me get Quviviq cheaper if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you if you have insurance, including if your insurance company will not pay for your Quviviq medication, or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance. Please fill in our enrollment application to find out more.

What is Quviviq?

Quviviq is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Idorsia Pharmaceuticals Ltd. Quviviq is an orexin receptor antagonist used for the treatment of adult patients with insomnia and with difficulties with sleep onset or sleep maintenance. Quviviq helps to improve sleep and daytime functioning. It is a federally controlled substance because it can be abused or cause dependence.

What doses of Quviviq are available?

Quviviq is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 25 mg, and 50 mg.

The recommended dosage is 25 mg to 50 mg at night, taken 30 minutes before going to bed, with at least 7 hours remaining to planned awakening. The maximum recommended dosage is 25 mg once per night if you have hepatic impairment. Quviviq is not recommended if you have severe hepatic impairment.

Please read the full prescribing information and medication guide, and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Quviviq active ingredients

Quviviq contains daridorexant, a sedative-hypnotic as the active ingredient. Daridorexant is a dual orexin receptor antagonist. It works by blocking the action of the neuropeptide orexin, a chemical produced by the brain that promotes wakefulness. This allows people to fall asleep quicker, stay asleep for longer, and to improve functioning during the day.

Quviviq side effects

The most common side effects of Quviviq in clinical trials compared to placebo include:

  • Headache
  • Somnolence (daytime sleepiness)
  • Fatigue

In rare instances, Quviviq can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • CNS-depressant effects – daytime impairment, motor coordination including morning impairment. Caution is advised with next day driving
  • Worsening depression and suicidal thoughts
  • Sleep paralysis, hypnagogic/hypnopompic hallucinations, and cataplexy-like symptoms
  • Complex sleep behaviors – sleepwalking, sleep-driving, and engaging in other activities while not fully awake
  • Compromised respiratory function

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Quviviq against your risk of adverse effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions to Quviviq to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Quviviq drug interactions

Quviviq can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Strong CYP3A4 inhibitors
  • Moderate CYP3A4 inhibitors
  • Moderate or strong CYP3A4 inducers
  • Opioid pain or cough relievers (codeine, hydrocodone), alcohol, marijuana, other drugs for sleep or anxiety (alprazolam, zolpidem), muscle relaxants (carisoprodol, cyclobenzaprine), or antihistamines (cetirizine, diphenhydramine) – may increase the risk of side effects such as shallow breathing, severe drowsiness, or dizziness

This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Quviviq. Tell your healthcare provider about all of the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
