Am I eligible for the Sucraid patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Sucraid patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however 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

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Sucraid patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Sucraid. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Sucraid assistance, we will handle the application process for you. We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Sucraid patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Sucraid medication refills for up to 1 year.

What is Sucraid?

Sucraid is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by QOL Medical, LLC. Sucraid is a yeast-based enzyme replacement therapy of the enzyme sucrase, which is normally in the small intestine in the body. Sucrase helps the body break down and process certain sucrose (table sugar) during digestion. In people who lack the sucrase enzyme, sugar can pass into the intestines where it can interact with bacteria. This can cause symptoms of CSID, such as bloating, gas, stomach pain, and watery diarrhea.

Sucraid is used for the treatment of symptoms associated with sucrose gastrointestinal symptoms in pediatric patients as young as 5 months of age, which is part of congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID). Sucrose is a complex sugar called a disaccharide, created by the combination of two simple sugars (monosaccharides), glucose and fructose.

What doses of Sucraid are available?

Sucraid is available as an oral solution, in the following doses: 8500 international units (I.U.) in 1mL.

The recommended dosage of Sucraid is 1 or 2 mL or 1 or 2 full measuring scoops taken orally with each meal or snack, diluted with 2 to 4 ounces of water, milk, or infant formula. Sucraid may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor about all medications and supplements you use. Do not mix Sucraid with fruit juice or take it with fruit juice.

Please read the prescribing information on the package insert and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
