  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Tymlos patient assistance program?

Applying for the Tymlos 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 Tymlos, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Tymlos 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 Tymlos patient assistance program, we will also automatically request your Tymlos medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Tymlos coupons provider?

NiceRx does not provide Tymlos coupons, discount cards or copay cards.

How much is Tymlos with insurance?

Your individual healthcare plan will determine the cost of Tymlos with insurance. To find out what you will need to pay, contact your pharmacist or insurance provider. They will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Tymlos cost without insurance?

Tymlos prices without insurance will vary by retailer. As a guide, Tymlos subcutaneous solution (3120 mcg/1.56 mL) will typically cost around $2,200.

What is Tymlos?

Tymlos contains the prescription medicine abaloparatide. Abaloparatide is a man-made parathyroid hormone that occurs naturally in the body. Abaloparatide is used for the treatment of osteoporosis in women who have passed menopause. Abaloparatide helps to increase bone density and strength, and reduce the risk of bone fractures.

Tymlos is not recommended to be used for more than 2 years in your lifetime. Tymlos is also not recommended for children or young adults whose bones are still growing. It is unknown if Tymlos is effective or safe for people aged 18 or younger.

Tymlos is given as a subcutaneous injection under the skin, usually once per day. Tymlos should be given at the same time of day at a time when you can sit or lie down if you need to, as Tymlos can cause dizziness. Tymlos is part of a complete treatment program that includes changes in diet, exercise, taking vitamins or minerals, and changing certain other behaviors.

Tymlos active ingredients

Abaloparatide acts in the same manner as naturally occurring parathyroid hormone in your body. It works on a parathyroid receptor that results in the activation of the cAMP pathway. The cAMP pathway controls cell growth production and changes. Abaloparatide has the effect of increasing bone mineral content, which increases bone strength in your back as well as other bones.

Tymlos side effects

The most common side effects caused by Tymlos include:

  • Nausea
  • Dizziness and spinning sensation
  • Headache
  • Increased heart rate
  • Upper stomach pain
  • Tiredness

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

  • High calcium levels – increase in thirst or urination, weight loss, constipation, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, confusion, feeling tired
  • Symptoms of kidney stones – pain when urinating, blood in urine, severe pain in lower back or side
  • Feeling light headed or faint
  • Increased heart rate
  • Bone pain or unusual body aches

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Tymlos against your risk of side effects.

Tymlos drug interactions

Tymlos can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Treatment for psoriasis – calcipotriene, calcitriol
  • Treatment for heart problems – digitoxin, digoxin

This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Tymlos.

Tymlos warning and precautions
