Your monthly Sivextro cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Sivextro patient assistance program you can get your medication for free. Our monthly flat rate 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 Sivextro through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Sivextro patient assistance program?

You could receive your Sivextro without paying the full retail price if you meet the eligibility criteria for assistance. This criteria is set by the pharmaceutical companies who 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 Sivextro patient assistance?

Our application process could not be easier. 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 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 Sivextro.

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 Sivextro 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 Sivextro medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year once you are enrolled in the program.

Is NiceRx a Sivextro coupons provider?

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

Can NiceRx help me get Sivextro 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 Sivextro medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you do not have insurance.

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

How much is Sivextro with insurance?

The cost of Sivextro will vary in line with the specific terms of your healthcare plan. For further details about what you may need to pay, your insurance provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate the copay costs with your current insurance.

How much does Sivextro cost without insurance?

Sivextro prices without insurance will vary depending on if you buy the intravenous powder for injection or the oral tablets, and the quantity you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, a pack of 6, 200 mg Sivextro tablets will cost around $2,800. If you obtain your medication through NiceRx, you will pay a flat monthly rate of $49 per medication regardless of its retail price

What is Sivextro?

Sivextro is an antibiotic that can be given to adults and children aged 12 and over. It is used to treat bacterial infections on and in the skin, and infections in the tissue beneath the skin. These are termed skin and skin structure infections (SSSIs).

If you have a bacterial skin or skin structure infection, your doctor may have prescribed Sivextro to you. It is an antibiotic that can stop the spread of bacterial infections through your skin. You take Sivextro either as a tablet you swallow or as a solution that’s injected into one of your veins (intravenous injection).

Sivextro active ingredients

The active ingredient in Sivextro is called tedizolid, an antibiotic that can stop the growth of certain types of bacteria in your skin.

When you take Sivextro, the tedizolid it contains is absorbed by the bacteria causing your infection. Once inside the bacteria, tedizolid blocks a step in the process the bacteria use to build the proteins they need to stay alive and to multiply. This makes it harder for the bacteria to live inside your body and to spread, allowing your immune system to clear the infection.

Sivextro side effects & Sivextro drug interactions

The most common Sivextro side effects are:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Vomiting (being sick)
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • An increase in your liver enzymes that can show up in some blood tests

Sometimes, Sivextro can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • An increased risk of a Clostridioides difficile (C-diff) infection that can cause severe diarrhea, painful stomach cramps, and inflammation of your intestines (colitis) that can be life-threatening
  • Blurred or impaired vision
  • High blood pressure
  • A low white blood cell count
  • A low red blood cell count (anemia)

Sivextro can interact with other medications. This can change how Sivextro and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. These medications include:

  • Methotrexate, taken for various cancers or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Topotecan, taken for various cancers
  • Rosuvastatin, taken to treat high cholesterol

Sivextro warnings & precautions

Sivextro can cause side effects, like dizziness and vision problems, that can impair your ability to drive, operate machinery, or perform other dangerous tasks. Avoid these activities until you are sure Sivextro does not impact your ability to perform them safely. The medication should also not be given to children under 12 years of age

Do not take Sivextro if you are allergic to the active ingredient tedizolid or any of the other ingredients in Sivextro

Talk to your doctor before taking Sivextro if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Sivextro
  • Have diarrhea
  • Have ever had diarrhea after taking an antibiotic, even if the diarrhea occurred up to 2 months after taking the antibiotic
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). 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.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
