Am I eligible for Spevigo patient assistance?

We review each Spevigo enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its 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 Spevigo patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Spevigo patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Spevigo, your healthcare provider, your health insurance plan, and your household income. This information 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 Spevigo coupon provider?

NiceRx is not a Spevigo coupon, Spevigo discount card, or Spevigo copay card provider.

What is Spevigo?

Spevigo is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved interleukin inhibitor manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. It is the first FDA-approved treatment of generalized pustular psoriasis flares, or GPP flares in adults 18 years and older. The effectiveness of Spevigo was demonstrated in Effisayil-1, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. The safety and efficacy of Spevigo in children and adolescents under 18 years of age have not been established.

Generalized pustular psoriasis (GPP) is a rare skin disease that can be life-threatening if left untreated. It is sometimes confused with plaque psoriasis. GPP is characterized by repeated flares that cause your skin to develop inflammation, redness, and small visible pustules. If left untreated, GPP flares can lead to serious complications such as sepsis and organ failure.

What doses of Spevigo are available?

Spevigo is available in the following doses: 450mg/7.5ml (60mg/ml) injection for intravenous use

Spevigo is given as a single 900mg dose by intravenous (IV) infusion over 90 minutes. If your symptoms continue, your doctor may give you another 900mg dose 1 week after the initial dose.

Spevigo active ingredients

The active ingredient of Spevigo is spesolimab-sbzo.

Spesolimab-sbzo is a monoclonal antibody that blocks the activation of the interleukin-36 receptor (IL-36R). Blocking the IL-36R helps reduce the release of profibrotic and proinflammatory pathways in the immune system which can lead to the development of generalized pustular psoriasis.

Spevigo side effects

The most common adverse reactions to Spevigo in clinical trials include:

  • Asthenia and fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Pruritus
  • Infusion-site bruising
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Bacteria in the blood or urine
  • Herpes dermatitis and oral herpes
  • Upper respiratory tract infection

In rare instances, Spevigo can cause serious side effects, including:

  • Increased risk of infections
  • Tuberculosis
  • Hypersensitivity including drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS)
  • Infusion-related reactions

Your doctor will determine the benefits of using Spevigo against the risk of side effects. Make sure to read the U.S. Full Prescribing Information, including Boxed Warnings and the Medication Guide to learn more about this medication.

You can report any side effects experienced with Spevigo to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.

Spevigo drug interactions

When Spevigo is taken with other medicines, they may interact and change how those work. It may also increase the severity of certain side effects or make them more likely to occur. Make sure your doctor is aware of all the medications you take, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Live vaccines should be avoided in patients taking Spevigo.

Spevigo contraindications

You should not use Spevigo if you:

  • Have a severe or life-threatening hypersensitivity to spesolimab-sbzo

Seek medical advice from your healthcare professional before taking Spevigo if you:

  • Have an infection that will not heal or that keeps coming back.
  • Have tuberculosis or have been in close contact with someone with it. Your doctor may choose to initiate anti-tuberculosis therapy if you have latent TB or a history of TB.
  • Are scheduled to receive an immunization or recently received one.
  • Are pregnant, plan on becoming pregnant, or are breastfeeding.

Spevigo generic

Spevigo is the trademark brand name for spesolimab-sbzo manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. A generic version of Spevigo is not available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper treatment options than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Spevigo savings with the help of NiceRx.
