Am I eligible for Stribild patient assistance?

To be eligible for the Stribild patient assistance program, you will need to meet specific eligibility criteria set by the pharmaceutical company. At NiceRx, we review each Stribild enrollment application individually. The main factors considered 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 Stribild patient assistance program?

Applying for the Stribild patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Stribild, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Stribild assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Stribild patient assistance program, we will also request your Stribild medication refills for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

Is NiceRx a Stribild coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Stribild coupons, discount cards or copay cards. We do not offer printable Stribild manufacturer coupons, Stribild discounts, rebates, Stribild savings cards, trial offers, or free samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access patient assistance programs. Our service cost is $49 a month per medication, so you will likely save more on your Stribild medication with NiceRx.

Can NiceRx help me get Stribild if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you access Stribild patient assistance if:

  • You have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility for Stribild

How much does Stribild cost without insurance?

Stribild prices without insurance will vary by retailer. As a guide, Stribild tablets (150 mg-150 mg-200 mg-300 mg) will typically cost around $3,700 for 30 tablets.

What is Stribild?

Stribild contains a combination of the prescription medicines cobicistat, elvitegravir, emtricitabine, and tenofovir. Elvitegravir, emtricitabine, and tenofovir are antiviral medicines that stop HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) from multiplying in your body. Cobicistat blocks enzymes in your liver from breaking these medicines down. This allows the antiviral medicines to be given more safely and effectively at lower doses.

Stribild is used for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults and children 12 years of age and older, who weigh at least 35 kg, have no history of antiretroviral treatment, or to replace the current antiretroviral treatment in those who are virologically suppressed (HIV-1 RNA less than 50 copies/mL) and on a stable antiretroviral treatment for at least 6 months with no treatment failure and no known resistance to the individual ingredients of Stribild.

Stribild active ingredients

Emtricitabine is a man-made version of cytidine. It is converted by enzymes in your body into a form that is added into the DNA of the virus causing the production of that DNA to stop.

Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate is chemically changed by enzymes in the body to form tenofovir diphosphate. Tenofovir diphosphate blocks the action of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (an enzyme) initially, and also by causing termination of the DNA chain once it is added into the viral DNA chain itself.

Elvitegravir blocks the transfer of HIV-1 DNA strand activity of HIV-1 integrase. HIV-1 integrase is an enzyme encoded with the viral DNA that is required for viral replication. Blocking this enzyme stops the integration of HIV-1 DNA into normal cell DNA. This blocks the production of the HIV-1 provirus and the spread of the viral infection.

Cobicistat blocks the action of specific enzymes called cytochrome P450. This allows medicines such as elvitegravir which is normally broken down by cytochrome P450 to remain effective for longer periods of time.

Stribild side effects

The most common side effects caused by Stribild include:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea

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

  • New or unusual bone pain
  • Kidney problems – difficulty urinating, swelling in your feet or ankles, feeling tired or short of breath

  • Fever, swollen glands, night sweats, cold sores, cough, wheezing, weight loss
  • Swollen neck or throat
