Am I eligible for Radicava patient assistance?

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

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

If we determine that you may be eligible for Radicava 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 Radicava patient assistance program, we will also request your Radicava 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.

Is NiceRx a Radicava coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Radicava coupons, discount cards, or copay cards. We do not offer printable Radicava manufacturer coupons, Radicava discounts, rebates, Radicava 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 will likely save more on your Radicava medication with NiceRx.

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

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Radicava

What is Radicava?

Radicava is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation (MTPC) and commercialized in the U.S. by Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America, Inc.

It is used for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and is the only treatment option with FDA approval for ALS patients shown to slow the loss of physical function, as measured by the ALS Functional Rating Scale-Revised (ALSFRS-R).

What doses of Radicava are available?

Radicava is available in injection form, in the following doses: 30 mg/100 mL in a single-dose polypropylene bag.

The recommended dosage is 60 mg as an intravenous infusion, given by a healthcare provider over 60 minutes. The initial treatment cycle is daily dosing for 14 days followed by a 14- day drug-free period. Subsequent treatment cycles are daily dosing for 10 days out of a 14- day period, followed by a 14-day drug-free period.

Always speak to your healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition. Also, see full Prescribing Information and Patient Information.

Radicava active ingredients

Radicava contains the active ingredient edaravone which is a free-radical scavenger, meaning it helps to remove reactive molecules that can cause oxidative stress. The exact mechanism by which Radicava works in patients with ALS is unknown.

Radicava side effects

The most common adverse reactions of Radicava in clinical trials (at least 10% and greater than placebo) include:

  • Contusion
  • Gait disturbance (trouble walking)
  • Headache
  • Bruising
  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema

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

  • Hypersensitivity Reactions – wheezing, chest tightness, trouble breathing
  • Sulfite allergic reactions – Radicava contains sodium bisulfite, which may cause allergic-type reactions

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

Radicava drug interactions

Other drugs may interact with edaravone, including prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell your doctor about all your current medicines.

Radicava contraindications

You should not use Radicava if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient edaravone
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Radicava

Talk to your doctor before using Radicava if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Radicava
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Have asthma or a sulfite allergy

Radicava generic

Radicava is the trademark brand name for edaravone manufactured by Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation. A generic version of edaravone is not available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Radicava savings through NiceRx.

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.
