Am I eligible for Tracleer patient assistance?

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico

  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Tracleer patient assistance program?

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

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

What is Tracleer?

Tracleer is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Janssen-Cilag Pty Ltd.

Tracleer is an endothelin receptor antagonist indicated for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (high blood pressure):

  • In adults to improve exercise ability and to decrease clinical worsening. Studies establishing effectiveness included predominantly patients with WHO Functional Class II-IV symptoms and etiologies of idiopathic or heritable PAH (60%), PAH associated with connective tissue diseases (21%), and PAH associated with congenital heart disease with left-to-right shunts (18%)
  • In pediatric patients aged 3 years and older with idiopathic or congenital PAH to improve pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR), which is expected to result in an improvement in exercise ability

Risks of hepatotoxicity and embryo-fetal toxicity. See full prescribing information for a complete boxed warning. Tracleer is available only through a restricted program called the Tracleer REMS Program. Elevations of liver aminotransferases (ALT, AST) and liver failure have been reported with Tracleer. Measure liver aminotransferases before initiation of treatment and then monthly. Stop treatment if aminotransferase elevations are accompanied by signs or symptoms of liver dysfunction or injury or increases in bilirubin ≥2 x ULN.

What doses of Tracleer are available?

Tracleer is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 62.5 mg and 125 mg. Or oral suspension form, in the following doses: 32 mg.

  • Initiate at 62.5 mg tablet orally twice daily, for patients weighing greater than 40 kg, increase to 125 mg orally twice daily after 4 weeks
  • Patients 12 years of age and younger: dose adjustments will need to be made based on weight. Reduce the dose and closely monitor patients developing aminotransferase elevations more than 3 X Upper Limit of Normal (ULN)

You must have your blood tested to check your liver function before you start treatment and each month after that. Please see full prescribing information, including Boxed warning about liver injury, birth defects, and medication guide.
