Every month, people have to pay money out-of-pocket for their prescription medications and many cannot afford them. Getting a discount or finding a coupon for prescription medications can make them much more affordable. Pataday is a medication that is commonly prescribed, and without some type of financial assistance, people may not be able to pay for it themselves. For many allergy sufferers, this medication contributes to their quality of life. 

At The Rx Advocates, we want to help people afford their monthly medications without worrying about the cost. We work with various patient assistance programs, which allows us to extend the savings to the patients we work with. In fact, our patients only ever pay our monthly service fee for the medications they need.

Who are The Rx Advocates?

The Rx Advocates is a company that works with many patient assistance programs to help our patients get discounts on the medications they need every month. Our prescription advocacy program is very well-known, and it is growing as we help more people. We work with more than 100 pharmaceutical companies’ patient assistance programs in the United States. This allows us to offer excellent services and prices to our patients. We can save them money on more than 800 FDA-approved medications.

It can be a lot of work to find patient assistance programs and fill out applications for them. Quite often, it is a task that takes a lot of research and time. Many patients give up because it seems as though they will never find what they are looking for. But The Rx Advocates can take care of this process for them, saving them valuable time and money.

When patients choose to work with us, they will never see any hidden fees or charges. We have a set fee that is between $70-$100 every month, depending on how many prescriptions need to be filled. We never ask our patients to pay any more than the amount of their monthly fee, and their medications are provided to them free of charge. 

At The Rx Advocates, we do not have our own coupons, prescription discount cards or insurance plans. But the discounts we offer our patients give them the ability to stay on their monthly medications without having to worry about their affordability. Our goal is to give them peace of mind so they can continue to stay healthy.

Pataday Prescription Discounts:
Frequently Asked Questions

Pataday eye drops are prescribed to treat the eye itchiness and redness that often accompanies allergies. This medication is also sold under the generic name olopatadine. It comes in a few different forms; for use once or twice daily, depending on the formulation.

Pataday eye drops work in a few different ways. First, they can help with itchiness and redness by stabilizing the mast cells in the eye, which are responsible for releasing histamines — chemical signals that cause allergic reactions.

The eye drops also block the histamines that have been released from attaching to histamine receptors. This effectively stops the allergic reaction and prevents it from continuing. The user experiences relief from their symptoms.

This medication can cause some side effects, such as:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Altered taste
  • Cold symptoms
  • Back pain
  • Weakness
  • Abnormal sensation in the eyes
  • Dry eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Stinging of the eyes
  • Cough
  • Sinusitis

Most side effects should go away with continued use. But if they are bothersome or do not go away, please contact the prescribing physician to discuss an alternative.

As of September 2022, the average retail cost of Pataday is $203.49.

The cost of Pataday can vary based on a few different factors. They include the pharmacy’s location, the dosage amount, and the presence or absence of health insurance.

This is about the amount a patient might go through in a month. Having health insurance can bring the cost down some, but this amount is still too much for them to have to pay every month for many people.

Sometimes people can find substantial savings by choosing prescription drug coupons to help cover the cost of their medications. But these are very different from the help that can be obtained through patient assistance programs.

With a quick Google search, patients can find many different coupons to help offset the cost of Pataday or other prescription medications. But those coupons may have issues such as quick expiration dates, or they may only be available for use one time. This may be able to help make the medication more affordable for the first month, but after that, it goes back to being the same price.

Pataday coupons may save people some money in the short term, but they are not a good long-term solution for people who need this medication. Most people who use Pataday need to use their eye drops at least six months out of the year. Others may need to use them year-round. For these individuals, a one-time-use coupon simply does not make their medication affordable.
