Daily prescription medications can cost a lot of money each month. One of those medications is Amitiza. Amitiza is prescribed to patients who have opioid-induced constipation or women with IBS constipation. The Rx Advocates can help patients get the medications they need every day at a reasonable rate.

The Rx Advocates help people get connected to patient assistance programs. These programs are offered by pharmaceutical companies that make the medications. Patient assistance programs help people that cannot afford the medications that they need to be healthy.

Who are The Rx Advocates?

The Rx Advocates is a prescription advocacy program recognized on a national level. The Rx Advocates help people get into patient assistance programs. We link patients with over 100 United States-based pharmaceutical manufacturers’ patient assistance programs. These programs cover more than 800 FDA-approved prescription medicines including the 100 most prescribed medications in the United States.

When patients allow The Rx Advocates to help them with their monthly medications, they can count on a steady price. The only cost is a $60-$90 service fee depending on the number of medications they use every month. They will never have to pay more than the monthly service fee for the prescriptions they use every day.

Amitiza Prescription Discounts:
Frequently Asked Questions

Amitiza (lubiprostone) is a prescription that can treat Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC) or Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Constipation(IBS-C). It is not a traditional laxative, fiber, or stool softener. This medication increases fluid in the intestines to help stool pass more easily.

Amitiza should only be used for people with symptoms of constipation and should not be used for Irritable Bowel Syndrome with Diarrhea (IBS-D).

CIC and IBS-C are chronic conditions without clear causes. They may be caused by a combination of stress, infection, or environmental conditions.

Amitiza should not be used by people that have a blockage in their digestive tract. It should also not be used by people who have severe diarrhea. Pregnant women or nursing mothers should talk to their doctors before starting Amitiza because it can cause harm to the developing fetus.

There are a few FDA-approved alternatives to Amitiza, which include:

Prescription drug prices can vary, even for the same medication. There are a few reasons why this happens. Different pharmacies may have different prices for the same medication. Prices can be higher or lower in one part of the country. There can be a large price difference when one person has insurance and another person does not.

As of April 2021, the average out-of-pocket cost for a one-month supply of Amitiza is $463.83. Amitiza comes in capsule form. It is available in 8 mcg or 24 mcg and is taken twice a day. If the patient has nausea when they take Amitiza, they should take it with a meal.

At The Rx Advocates, we do not hand out coupons or discount cards to take to the pharmacy. We help people get into patient assistance programs. When someone has been prescribed Amitiza, they may do a quick internet search to check the price. When they see how much it costs, they will probably search for a coupon. This makes sense, but there is a better option.

As of April 2021, there is a coupon available to use at a CVS pharmacy that drops the price to $288.10 for a one-month supply. This is a big difference, but some people will still not be able to afford the medication. Coupons may have an expiration date that limits how long they can be used. Often coupons can only be used once; then patients will have to pay full price for a refill.

Get Amitiza Discounts Every Month
Through The Rx Advocates

Helping patients get the medications they need at a price they can afford each month is the goal of The Rx Advocates. We know how hard it can be to afford the medicines people need to live their best lives. It can be even more difficult if a patient needs more than one medication each month.

Patient assistance programs can make a big difference for people with a small budget. These programs are offered by the pharmaceutical companies that produce the medication. These are public programs for anyone who meets the guidelines, but many people do not know they exist.

Patients who do know about the patient assistance programs can apply themselves. This process can be long and frustrating; some people may give up before they get approved. The Rx Advocates know how to help patients get into those programs with less stress.

Patient assistance programs can help people who do not have health insurance save a lot of money every month. This could be the difference between getting the medications they need or having to go without. These programs can also help people that do have insurance.

Some insurance policies may not have prescription drug coverage. Policies that do carry prescription medication coverage could have high copays. Letting The Rx Advocates help them get into the programs can make a big difference in their lives.

With The Rx Advocates, patients pay only the monthly service fee for the medications they need. The service fee depends on the number of medications patients use. One medication is $60 per month. Two are $70; three medications are $80 per month. The highest rate is $90 per month for four or more medications. There are no hidden charges or extra fees.

At The Rx Advocates, we are here to help you stay healthy and save money. No one should have to choose between having the medicine they need or paying regular monthly expenses. We can check your eligibility for patient assistance programs. Please contact us today to get started.
