Prescription medications can be very expensive. Synjardy is a medication that people need on a daily basis, and it is expensive. People that have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes may have Synjardy 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 are stressful for lots of people. No one should have to worry about having enough money to get the medication they need to control their blood glucose levels.

Who are The Rx Advocates?

The Rx Advocates is a nationally recognized prescription advocacy program. We help people get approved for over 100 patient assistance programs. These programs cover 800 FDA-approved medications that people need to get and stay healthy.

The Rx Advocates is not an insurance plan. We are not a prescription medication discount card. We connect people to pharmaceutical companies’ patient assistance programs for people to get the medications they need at an affordable price. We help them get the medications they need every day with less stress.

Patient assistance programs are put together by pharmaceutical companies to provide people the medications they need at no cost. These programs are not always advertised; many people may not know about them. Patients who know about the programs can apply by themselves, but the process is long and confusing. Many people may give up trying before they can be approved.

The Rx Advocates collaborate with patients and their doctors to put together the applications for 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 smoothly. After the pharmaceutical company approves the application, we continue to take care of any other paperwork, including refills.

Synjardy Prescription Discounts:
Frequently Asked Questions

Synjardy (empagliflozin and metformin hydrochloride) is a combination of two diabetes drugs. This medication can be an option for people along with diet and exercise to lower their A1C number. The A1C test measures the average blood sugar levels over three months. This test is used to diagnose prediabetes and diabetes, and as a measure of overall blood sugar control.

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when levels of blood glucose (blood sugar) are too high. The body turns the food into glucose to be used for energy. Normally, when the blood glucose level goes up, the pancreas releases insulin. Insulin allows the glucose to go into the body’s cells to be used for energy.

Having too much glucose in the bloodstream for a long time can cause problems later. High blood glucose can eventually lead to kidney damage, nerve damage, and blindness. 

In type 2 diabetes the pancreas makes insulin, but the body does not use it properly, which leads to high blood glucose levels. Sometimes type 2 diabetes can be managed with diet and exercise. More often patients need some extra help and use medications.

Synjardy works in multiple ways to control blood glucose. Empagliflozin helps the kidneys remove glucose from the bloodstream. Metformin lowers blood glucose production in the liver while also causing the intestines to absorb less glucose.

Patients with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis should not take Synjardy.

There are other medications that are approved by the FDA to treat type 2 diabetes. These medications include:

As of September 2022, the average retail cost of Synjardy is $666.22.

There are several reasons why one patient may pay a higher or lower price than someone else:

  • Costs of living are different in varying parts of the country.
  • Which pharmacy the patient uses can affect the price they pay.
  • Insurance makes a big difference in prices, especially if the patient does not have insurance.

There are a few different dosage levels for Synjardy, 5 mg/500 mg, 5 mg/1000 mg, 12.5 mg/500 mg, and 12.5 mg/1000 mg. Synjardy should be taken by mouth twice daily with food.

Prescription coupons and patient assistance programs are very different things. At The Rx Advocates, we do not offer coupons. We would like to explain how a coupon works. When a patient is prescribed Synjardy, they may do an internet search for a coupon.

This is a reasonable activity as prescriptions can be expensive. Some patients may feel that they cannot continue to take the medication if they do not find a lower price. This is especially true if they have multiple daily prescriptions. However, coupons do not always have the highest amount of savings available.

A Synjardy coupon may save someone a small amount of money, but they may still have a high out-of-pocket cost. Even with this coupon, some patients cannot afford to get Synjardy to control their blood glucose levels. Often coupons may only be used one time, then patients will have to pay the full price. Some coupons have great deals for the first couple of months of using the prescription, but then patients are back to paying the full price in the following months.
