Your monthly Tyvaso  cost savings if eligible

If you are eligible for the Tyvaso patient assistance program, the cost of your medication will be free. We only charge $49 a month, per medication, to cover our service fees. You could receive your Tyvaso prescription for just $49 a month, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Tyvaso patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Tyvaso 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

How do I apply for the Tyvaso patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Tyvaso patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Tyvaso. 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 Tyvaso 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 Tyvaso patient assistance program, and we will automatically request your Tyvaso medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Tyvaso coupons provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Tyvaso patient
assistance program. That means that we do not offer printable Tyvaso manufacturer coupons, Tyvaso discounts, or free Tyvaso samples. We are not a Tyvaso coupon provider or Tyvaso discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Tyvaso if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Tyvaso patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company will not pay for your Tyvaso medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you do not have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.

How much is Tyvaso with insurance?

The cost of Tyvaso with insurance depends on the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out how much this is, your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Tyvaso cost without insurance?

Tyvaso prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it and how much you buy. As a guide, the cost for Tyvaso inhalation solution (0.6 mg/mL) is around $2,800 for a supply of 11.6 milliliters. With NiceRx you will pay a flat monthly fee of $49, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

What is Tyvaso?

Tyvaso contains the prescription medicine treprostinil, which is classed as a prostaglandin. Prostaglandins are found in almost every part of your body and have a wide range of effects on your body. Tyvaso is used for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and to help improve your ability to exercise.

Tyvaso is inhaled using only the Tyvaso inhalation system. A healthcare professional will give your first dose and will show you how to properly use the medication yourself. Tyvaso treatment should not be stopped suddenly. Doing this can make your condition worse. You will need a spare inhalation system to make sure there are no breaks in your treatment. The inhalation system must be stored upright and tightly capped with the plugs when not in use. Also, you may need to take Tyvaso for a long time.

Tyvaso active ingredients

Treprostinil has two main actions on the body. It widens blood vessels in your lungs and throughout your body helping to reduce your blood pressure in your lungs. Tyvaso also stops platelets from coming together within your body. This helps to stop clots from forming.

Tyvaso should be taken as recommended by your doctor. Your first dose may be given to you in a hospital setting so as to be able to treat any serious side effects quickly. Your blood pressure and heart rate will also need to be checked whenever your dose is changed. You should call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, or if they get worse.

Tyvaso side effects

The most common side effects caused by Tyvaso include:

  • Nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Headache, dizziness
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Irregular heartbeats
  • Muscle or joint pain
  • Anxiety

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

  • Shortness of breath with dizziness or weakness
  • Feeling light-headed or faint
  • Unusual bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Sweating, pale skin, problems breathing, chest pain

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

  • Blood thinners – apixaban, edoxaban, enoxaparin, rivaroxaban, heparin
  • Treatments for cancer – avapritinib, cabozantinib, ibrutinib
  • Calcium channel blockers for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension) – amlodipine, felodipine, nifedipine
