Am I eligible for Rydapt patient assistance?

We review each Rydapt enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and the 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 the Rydapt patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Rydapt patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Rydapt. You must also provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

Is NiceRx a Rydapt coupons provider?

NiceRx is not a Rydapt coupon, Rydapt discount card, or Rydapt copay card provider. We do not offer Rydapt manufacturer coupons, Rydapt discounts, rebates, Rydapt savings cards, trial offers, or free Rydapt samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Rydapt patient assistance program.

How much is Rydapt with insurance?

How much does Rydapt cost without insurance?

Rydapt prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Rydapt oral capsules 25 mg will cost around $9,900 for 56 capsules.

What is Rydapt?

Rydapt contains the prescription medicine midostaurin, which is classed as a kinase inhibitor. Rydapt is used to treat:

  • Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) – in combination with other chemotherapy medicines when AML has been newly diagnosed
  • Aggressive systemic mastocytosis (ASM), systemic mastocytosis with associated hematological neoplasm (SM-AHN), or mast cell leukemia (MCL)

Rydapt is not safe when given to children in combination with chemotherapy. It is not known if Rydapt is effective to use in children. Rydapt is usually given until your body no longer responds to the medication.

Rydapt active ingredients

Midostaurin blocks the action of specific enzymes in the body. Midostaurin has been seen to stop the growth and spread of cancer cells in the body as well as to cause the death of specific types of cancer and mast cells.

You should take Rydapt exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Rydapt is taken 2 times per day (once every 12 hours) with food. Make sure you take your doses at regular intervals. You may need to take medication to prevent nausea and vomiting while you are taking this medicine. If you do vomit shortly after taking Rydapt, do not take another dose. You must wait until your next dose time to take your medicine again. You may need regular blood tests (every 1 to 4 weeks) while taking this medicine.

The most common side effects caused by Rydapt include:

  • Nausea, vomiting, stomach pain
  • Constipation, diarrhea

  • High blood sugar
  • Fever, cold symptoms such as stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat

  • Pain or sores in or around your mouth, redness inside your mouth
  • Sudden chest pain, wheezing, dry cough, shortness of breath
  • A reaction where the injection was given
  • Increased thirst or urination, dry mouth, sweet-smelling breath

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Rydapt against your risk of side effects.
