Paying too much for your Pataday prescription? We know that affording Pataday can be quite challenging without proper insurance coverage or support from a Pataday coupon, savings card, or patient assistance program. The Rx Advocates are here to make a difference in your monthly medication expenses. Our goal is to help you save substantially on your Pataday costs by guiding you through the process of accessing patient assistance programs provided by pharmaceutical manufacturers. By utilizing these programs, you could achieve even greater savings than with a standard Pataday coupon, ensuring you receive the medication you require without causing financial strain.

Access Pataday patient assistance programs with the Rx Advocates

The Rx Advocates helps patients get discounts on over 800 FDA-approved medications by working with more than 100 pharmaceutical companies’ patient assistance programs in the US. We take care of the research and application process, saving patients valuable time and money. Our fee is between $70-$100 per month, and we never ask patients to pay any hidden charges. Our discounts provide peace of mind to our patients, allowing them to stay on their monthly medications without worrying about affordability.

Here is how our prices are determined:

  • For 1 medication (e.g. Pataday only) – You’ll pay $70 per month
  • For 2 medications (Pataday + 1 other) – You’ll pay $80 per month
  • For 3 medications – You’ll pay a set fee of $90/month
  • For 4+ medications – You’ll pay $100/month

Note: The Pataday price through the RX Advocated will only be $70 per month if it’s the only medication you’re applying for.

Maximizing your savings: Moving beyond the Pataday coupon

You may have considered searching for a Pataday coupon to help reduce your monthly costs. While using a Pataday coupon can indeed save you some money, it’s important to understand the limitations that come with relying on coupons:

  • Coupons have an expiration date, meaning you may not always have a valid coupon when you need it.
  • Some coupons have restrictions, such as limiting the number of uses or only being available to new patients.
  • Coupons may not be accepted by all pharmacies or may not be combinable with insurance.

Fortunately, there’s a better solution. Patient assistance programs offer long-term savings and more consistent financial relief for your prescription costs. At The Rx Advocates, we can help you apply for and qualify for these programs, ensuring you never have to worry about finding a Pataday coupon again.

How much does Pataday cost?

As of January 2024, the average retail cost of Pataday is $233.23.

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.

Pataday coupon, discounts, & patient assistance FAQ's

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.

There are several medications that may be prescribed as alternatives to Pataday. They include:

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.
