Am I eligible for the Triumeq patient assistance program?

If you meet the eligibility criteria for Triumeq assistance, you could receive your Triumeq without paying the full retail price. Each Triumeq assistance program application is reviewed individually by NiceRx. It’s important to note that the main factors that are considered by most programs include:

  • 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 Triumeq patient assistance program? 

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Triumeq patient assistance program, through our simple and straightforward process. Your enrollment application is the first step to getting started which you can complete online.

You will need to tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Triumeq. You will also need to provide details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

Once NiceRx determines that you may be eligible for Triumeq assistance, we’ll handle the full application process for you. We will also request your Triumeq medication refills on your behalf for up to one year.

Is NiceRx a Triumeq coupons provider?

No, we are not a Triumeq coupons provider. NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Triumeq patient assistance program. This means that we are not a Triumeq discount card, or a Triumeq copay card provider. Our service does also not include printable Triumeq manufacturer coupons, Triumeq discounts, rebates, Triumeq savings cards, trial offers, or free Triumeq samples.

Remember that if you’re looking for coupons for Triumeq or cheap Triumeq, keep in mind you can likely save more with NiceRx. When obtaining your Triumeq medication through NiceRx, your total cost for the medication will always be $49 per month. 

Can NiceRx help me get Triumeq if I have insurance? 

Apply online to understand your potential eligibility for the Triumeq patient assistance program. At this stage, it’s important to note that we review each application on its own merits. This means we may be able to assist you in a variety of circumstances including if your insurance company won’t pay for your Triumeq medication. We may even be able to assist if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility, or if you don’t have insurance. 

How much is Triumeq with insurance?

Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance, as the cost of Triumeq will vary in line with the terms of your healthcare plan.

How much does Triumeq cost without insurance?

Triumeq prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it. As a guide, a bottle of 30, 600-50-300 mg Triumeq tablets will cost around $3,400.

What is Triumeq?

Triumeq is prescribed to adults to treat the human immunodeficiency virus-type 1 (HIV-1) infection. You take Triumeq as a tablet that you swallow, usually once a day.

The HIV-1 infection is a viral infection that can harm your immune system by damaging your white blood cells. It infects a type of white blood cell called T-helper or CD4 cell that helps protect you from infection. The HIV-1 virus stops these cells from working, reducing your immune system’s ability to protect you. This can lead to a disease called acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Triumeq can reduce the amount of the HIV-1 virus you have in your body (viral load). This can limit the harm to your immune system and can increase the number of T-helper white blood cells you have in your body. This helps your immune system to fight off other infections and some forms of cancer.

Triumeq active ingredients

Triumeq contains three active ingredients: abacavir, dolutegravir, and lamivudine. The HIV-1 virus copies itself by invading your T-helper white blood cells. It inserts itself into the DNA inside the cells, then takes advantage of your natural DNA copying process to make copies of itself. Eventually, the T-cell dies, and copies of the HIV-1 virus spread to other T-cells, and the cycle continues. Triumeq stops this from happening. 

Dolutegravir is a type of antiviral drug called an integrase inhibitor. It stops the HIV-1 virus from inserting itself into your DNA. Abacavir and lamivudine are antivirals called reverse transcriptase inhibitors. They stop the virus from being copied when your DNA is copied. This dual-effect makes it harder for your HIV-1 virus to copy itself. It can reduce the amount of virus you have in your body and increase the number of healthy T-cells you have.

Triumeq side effects & Triumeq drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Triumeq include:

  • Headaches
  • Tiredness (fatigue)
  • Trouble sleeping (insomnia) 

In rare instances, Triumeq can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • A potentially life-threatening condition called lactic acidosis caused by a build-up of lactic acid in your blood
  • Severe liver problems that can be fatal
  • A worsening of a hepatitis B infection, if you have one
  • Changes in your immune system, including a strengthening of your immune system (immune reconstitution syndrome)
  • Changes in body fat and body fat distribution – often reduced fat around the legs, arms, and face; and increased fat around the back, neck, trunk, and breast

Triumeq is known to interact with the following medications: 

  • Any other medicines taken to treat HIV
  • Other medications that contain abacavir, like Epzicom, Trizivir, or Ziagen
  • Other medications that contain lamivudine, like Combivir, Epivir, Epivir-HBV, Epzicom, or Trizivir
  • Medications that contain emtricitabine, like Emtriva, Atripla, Complera, Stribild, or Truvada
  • Medications that contain rifampin Rifater, Rifamate, Rimactane, or Rifadin
  • Any medications taken to treat a hepatitis infection, like interferon or ribavirin
  • Dofetilide (Tikosyn), an antiarrhythmic medication
  • Any antacids, any laxatives, or any other medications that contain aluminum, magnesium, or sucralfate
  • Any anti-seizure medications
  • Methadone
  • Oral iron or oral calcium supplements
  • St. John’s wort

When taken together, this can change how Triumeq and the other medications work. Certain side effects might become more likely.

  • Take dofetilide (Tikosyn), an antiarrhythmic medication

Talk to your doctor before taking Triumeq if you:

  • Are taking any of the other medications that could interact with Triumeq 
  • Have ever had a hepatitis B or C viral infection
  • Have any other liver problems
  • Have any kidney problems
  • Have any heart problems
  • Have any conditions that make heart disease more likely, like diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol

  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
