Prescription medications can be a costly necessity for many Americans. Lialda is a medication that people need on a daily basis that can be expensive to get. People that have been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis may have Lialda prescribed to them by their doctor.

The Rx Advocates help people get the medications that they need every day at a rate that is affordable. High prescription medication costs can be stressful. No one should have to worry about having enough money to get the medication they need and cover all the regular monthly expenses.

Who are The Rx Advocates?

The Rx Advocates is a nationally recognized prescription advocacy program. We help people connect with over 100 patient assistance programs. These programs include 800 FDA-approved medications that people need to be healthy.

The Rx Advocates is not a prescription discount card, coupon, or insurance plan. We help people access the patient assistance programs that pharmaceutical companies offer. They offer these programs to provide people the medications they need at no cost. Patients can apply by themselves, but the process is long and can be confusing. Many people may give up before they can be approved.

The Rx Advocates work with patients and their doctors to put together the applications to get into the patient assistance programs. Then The Rx Advocates submit the application and follow up with each pharmaceutical company to make sure the process is moving along. After the pharmaceutical company approves the application, The Rx Advocates take care of any additional paperwork. This includes any refills; patients will not have to go without their medications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Lialda (mesalamine) is used to treat mild to moderate ulcerative colitis. It can also be used as a maintenance drug to prevent recurring symptoms of ulcerative colitis. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease affecting the large intestine.

This disease can go into remission, but it does not entirely go away. This disease causes frequent bowel movements, bloody diarrhea, and abdominal pain. It can also cause urgency, an immediate need to find a toilet.

Ulcerative colitis can show up at any age, but it is usually diagnosed in a patient’s teen years to their early 30s. The cause of ulcerative colitis is unknown, but researchers believe it can be autoimmune-related. There is no cure, but medications can help reduce symptoms.

While the cause is unknown, there are risk factors that go with ulcerative colitis. Patients are 20% more likely to have ulcerative colitis if an immediate family member has been diagnosed with this disease. Some research suggests that urban settings and industrialization may increase the risk.

People who have had an allergic reaction to mesalamine, aspirin, sulfasalazine, salicylates, or Kaopectate should not take Lialda unless directed by their doctor. Anyone with kidney stones or kidney disease should make sure their doctor knows before they start taking Lialda. It is not known if Lialda is harmful to unborn children. Women who are pregnant should talk to their doctor.

There are some other FDA-approved medications available to treat ulcerative colitis. They include:

As of August 2021, the average retail cost of Lialda is $700.23.

Patients may pay different prices for Lialda. There are a few reasons why this may happen. Prices can be different based on where in the country a patient lives. Pharmacies may have different retail prices for the same prescription. What a patient pays can also be affected by their insurance or lack of insurance.

Lialda comes as a 1.2 gram tablet. Two tablets are taken by mouth once per day with food.

A prescription coupon is different from a patient assistance program. The Rx Advocates do not offer prescription drug coupons or discount cards. We would like to explain how a prescription drug coupon works.

After someone has been prescribed Lialda, they might do an internet search for a coupon. This is a reasonable action; Lialda is expensive. Some people may be concerned that they will not be able to get their prescription because of the cost.

Coupons may not be able to be used more than once. Sometimes coupons are available for a limited time; then patients will have to pay full price.

Get Lialda Discounts Every Month
Through The Rx Advocates

At The Rx Advocates, our goal is to help people afford the prescription medications that they need every month. We understand how expensive prescriptions can be. Ulcerative colitis does not go away, a patient could need medication for the rest of their life. They need to be able to find the best price for their daily medication.

Patient assistance programs can be the best option if someone does not have health insurance. It is even possible that people with insurance but high copays can still qualify for patient assistance programs. Some insurance policies may not cover prescription medications, so the patient would have to pay the retail price at the pharmacy.

The goal of The Rx Advocates is to help people save money by getting them into patient assistance programs. When patients allow us to help, they can be confident they will only pay one monthly service fee for their medications. There are no hidden charges or surprise fees; it is just $60 to $90 each month.

For one prescription per month, the service fee is $60. The Rx Advocates can help people with more than one prescription. Two prescriptions each month are $70, three medications are $80. If we help a patient with four or more prescriptions each month, the service fee is $90.

Ulcerative colitis is a lifelong battle for patients. With the proper medication, it can go into remission. Lialda can help make that happen, but it could come at a high price.

The Rx Advocates connect people with patient assistance programs to help them get the medications they need at an affordable rate. No one should have to go without the medications that will improve their quality of life. The Rx Advocates can help. Please contact us today to get started.
