How it works
Get started by filling out the online enrollment application to find out if you are eligible for assistance.
NiceRx verifies your eligibility for medication assistance and notifies you if you are pre-qualified. The pharmaceutical company provides your medication for free, and you only pay our service fee.
We will request documents to be submitted by you and your healthcare provider that are required by the pharmaceutical company to complete your enrollment.
Once approved, the pharmaceutical company typically ships a 90-day supply of medication to your home or healthcare provider’s address. Final acceptance is determined by the pharmaceutical company.

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.
