Am I eligible for Synarel patient assistance?

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

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

NiceRx is not a Synarel coupon, Synarel discount card, or Synarel copay card provider. We do not offer Synarel manufacturer coupons, Synarel discounts, rebates, Synarel savings cards, trial offers, or free Synarel samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access their medication directly from the U.S. pharmaceutical company.

What is Synarel?

Synarel is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer Limited. Synarel is used to treat central precocious puberty in boys and girls. Central precocious puberty is early sexual development that occurs at or before 8 years of age in girls or 9 years of age in boys, with advanced bone development for the child’s age.

Nafarelin is a potent gonadotropin-releasing hormone, GnRH agonist analogue. It works by decreasing the testosterone hormones in boys and estrogen hormones in women and girls. Synarel is also used to treat endometriosis in women who are at least 18 years old.

What doses of Synarel are available?

Synarel is available as a nasal spray, in the following doses: 2 mg in 1mL.

The recommended daily dose of Synarel is 200 mcg twice daily as one spray (200 mcg of nafarelin) to one nostril in the morning and one spray into the other nostril in the evening (400 mcg/day). Start treatment between days 2 and 4 of the menstrual cycle. The recommended duration of therapy is six months; only one 6-month course is advised.

Avoid sneezing during or right after using this medication because this may decrease the amount of medication absorbed. If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time.

If you need to use a nasal decongestant spray while using this medication, wait at least 2 hours after using this prescription drug before using the decongestant.

Please read the full prescribing information and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
