Am I eligible for Sabril patient assistance?

We review each Sabril 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 Sabril patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Sabril patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Sabril. 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 Sabril coupons provider?

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

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Sabril
  • Your insurance company will not pay for your Sabril prescription
  • Your healthcare plan does not cover Sabril medication
  • You do not have insurance

Please apply online to find out if we can help you.

How much is Sabril with insurance?

The cost of Sabril with insurance will depend on the terms of your healthcare plan. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Contact them to find out more.

How much does Sabril cost without Insurance?

Sabril prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, the cost for Sabril oral powder for reconstitution 500 mg is around $9,000 for a supply of 50 powders for reconstitution.

What is Sabril?

Sabril contains the prescription medicine vigabatrin, which is classed as an anticonvulsant. It works by reducing nerve impulses that cause seizures and pain. Sabril is used in combination with other medications to treat partial seizures in adults and children who are 10 years old and above. Sabril powder for oral solution is used to treat infantile spasms in babies and children between the ages of 1 month and 2 years.

This medicine should only be used by people if other medicines have been tried but were unable to control their seizures. Contact your doctor if your partial seizures do not improve after 3 months of treatment, or if your baby’s infantile spasms do not improve after 2 to 4 weeks of treatment. If your baby misses a dose, takes only part of a dose, or spits or vomits after taking this medicine, contact your doctor.

Sabril active ingredients

Exactly how vigabatrin works in the body is not fully understood. Studies do show however that vigabatrin does block the activity of a neurotransmitter called GABA, preventing it from breaking down in the brain. This action is thought to be important in calming the nerve activity in your brain, helping to prevent seizures.

You may take vigabatrin with or without food. Read and carefully follow any instructions provided with your medicine. Do not stop Sabril suddenly, as this may cause increased seizures. Follow your doctor’s instructions about reducing your dose. You are advised to wear or carry medical identification to let others know you are using Sabril.

This medicine can cause vision problems. An eye examination before starting treatment is needed, and then every 3 months during treatment, even if your vision seems normal. You must stay alert to changes in your eyesight when taking this medicine. If you stop taking vigabatrin, you should have another eye exam about 3 to 6 months after your last dose.

Sabril side effects

The most common side effects caused by Sabril include:

  • Drowsiness, tiredness, dizziness
  • Problems with balance or coordination
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Shaking

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

  • Confusion, feeling tired
  • Severe weakness, muscle pain
  • Increased seizures
  • Any changes in vision

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

Sabril drug interactions

Sabril can interact with other medications. These include:

  • SSRI’s (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) antidepressants –  citalopram, escitalopram
  • Opioid painkillers – buprenorphine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, methadone, oxycodone
  • Treatments for an irregular heartbeat – amiodarone, dronedarone
  • Corticosteroids – betamethasone, cortisone, dexamethasone, hydrocortisone, prednisolone
  • Anticonvulsants for the treatment of seizures – carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin
  • Treatments for mood disorders such as schizophrenia – clozapine, haloperidol

This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Sabril.
