Am I eligible for the Xenazine patient assistance program?
To find out if you are eligible for Xenazine assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider 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 Xenazine patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Xenazine patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Xenazine.
NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Xenazine assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Xenazine patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Xenazine.

What is Xenazine?
Xenazine is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication. Xenazine is a vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2) inhibitor indicated for the treatment of Huntington’s chorea.
Xenazine increases the risk of depression and suicidal thoughts and behavior in patients with Huntington’s disease. Balance the risks of depression and suicidality with the clinical need for control of chorea when considering the use of Xenazine. Patients should be monitored for the emergence or worsening of depression, suicidality, or unusual changes in behavior. Inform patients, caregivers, and families of the risk of depression and suicidality and instruct them to report behaviors of concern promptly to the treating physician. Exercise caution when treating patients with a history of depression or prior suicide attempts or ideation. Xenazine is contraindicated in patients who are actively suicidal, and in patients with untreated or inadequately treated depression
What doses of Xenazine are available?
Xenazine is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 12.5 mg non-scored and 25 mg scored.
For more information, please see the medication guide and the full prescribing information, including the boxed warning. Always speak with your healthcare provider for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
