  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

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

How much is Veletri with insurance?

The cost of Veletri 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 Veletri cost without insurance?

Veletri prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it and how much you buy. As a guide, Veletri intravenous powder for injection 0.5 mg usually costs $35 for 1 powder for injection. With NiceRx you will pay a flat monthly fee of $49, regardless of the retail price of your medication.

What is Veletri?

Veletri contains the prescription medicine epoprostenol, 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. Veletri is used for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and to help improve your ability to exercise.

Veletri is injected using an infusion pump. This is normally through a permanent central intravenous (IV) catheter placed into a large vein. A healthcare professional will give your first dose and will show you how to properly use the medication yourself. Veletri treatment should not be stopped suddenly. Doing this can make your condition worse. You will need a spare infusion pump, replacement batteries, and an extra IV infusion set, to make sure there are no breaks in your treatment. Also, you may need to take Veletri for a long time.

Veletri active ingredients

Epoprostenol has 2 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. Veletri also stops platelets from coming together within your body, which helps to stop clots from forming.

Veletri 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.

Veletri side effects

The most common side effects caused by Veletri include:

  • Nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Headache, dizziness
