How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible for assistance.
NiceRx verifies your eligibility for medication assistance and notifies you if you are pre-qualified. The pharmaceutical company provides your medication for free, and you only pay our service fee.
We will request documents to be submitted by you and your healthcare provider that are required by the pharmaceutical company to complete your enrollment.
Once approved, the pharmaceutical company typically ships a 90-day supply of medication to your home or healthcare provider’s address. Final acceptance is determined by the pharmaceutical company.
Your monthly Soriatane cost savings if eligible
If you are eligible to receive your Soriatane prescription through the patient assistance program, your medication will be free. We charge a flat monthly price of $49 per medication to cover the cost of our services.

What is Soriatane?
Soriatane contains the prescription medicine acitretin, which is classed as a retinoid, a form of vitamin A. Soriatane is used for the treatment of severe psoriasis in adults. Soriatane is normally given after other psoriasis medicines have not been successful at treating the condition. Soriatane is not a cure for psoriasis, which may come back after you stop using this medicine. Similar results are seen when Soriatane use is restarted.
Soriatane can have serious side effects, and for this reason should be prescribed only by those who know the systemic use of retinoids well. Soriatane should only be used for non-pregnant women who do not respond to other treatments or whose clinical condition means other treatments are not recommended.
Soriatane active ingredients
The exact mechanism by which Soriatane works is not known. Soriatane should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. You should take the capsules with food. Your symptoms of psoriasis may worsen when you first start taking Soriatane. It can take up to 3 months for you to see improvements, and you will need regular medical checks while you are taking Soriatane.
Soriatane can cause serious birth defects. Do not use this medicine if you are pregnant or if you might become pregnant within 3 years after you stop taking Soriatane. You must use effective birth control to avoid getting pregnant while taking Soriatane and for at least 3 years after your last dose. Women who are able to get pregnant must not drink alcohol while taking Soriatane and for at least 2 months after the last dose. Alcohol can cause this medicine to convert to another substance in your body that can take 3 years or longer to clear from your body. Men or women should not donate blood while taking Soriatane and for at least 3 years after the last dose. If donated blood containing this medicine is given to a pregnant woman, it can cause birth defects.
