Finding it tough to manage the cost of your monthly Uceris? Americans in every state are struggling with prescription drug costs. Many families find it difficult to cover both their healthcare bills and everyday expenses. Many people search for a Uceris savings card, coupon, or other discount to save money, but these methods do not offer substantial long-term savings. The Rx Advocates, however, can help you apply for the Uceris patient assistance program, which grants unlimited access to Uceris at a fraction of the retail cost. And if you need financial assistance to cover other prescription medications, we can help you apply for multiple patient assistance programs. The Rx Advocates can remove the financial burden of prescription drugs, ensuring that you don’t skip your medication due to high out-of-pocket costs.

Reduce the cost of Uceris with its patient assistance program

Interested in finding out how The Rx Advocates can help make Uceris more affordable? The Rx Advocates is a prescription advocacy program that helps people apply for financial assistance programs offered by US-based pharmaceutical companies. These programs, called patient assistance programs, guarantee much more substantial savings than a coupon, savings card, or copay program. We handle all the paperwork, making it easy for you to acquire a consistent supply of your prescription medication, whether or not you are insured. 

Our pricing model is simple and transparent. Our clients pay a one-time enrollment fee of $35 and a fixed monthly service fee of $70–$100, depending on the number of medications they receive: 

  • 1 Medication (Uceris only) – $70 per month
  • 2 Medications (Uceris + 1 other) – $80 per month
  • 3 Medications (Uceris + 2 others) – $90 per month 
  • 4+ Medications – $100 per month

Want more good news? Our pricing stays consistent, even if the retail price of your medication fluctuates. What you see is what you get. Our service is month to month, so if you’re unhappy with it, you may cancel at any time. With us, you’re never alone in your efforts to afford prescription medications.

What are the main disadvantages of using a Uceris coupon?

Are there any disadvantages to using a Uceris coupon? While coupons can offer short-term savings, it’s crucial to be aware of their limitations:

  • Uceris coupons are limited in where and how they can be used. For example, some coupons are valid only at certain pharmacy chains.
  • A coupon might not count toward your out-of-pocket maximum. This means you may still be responsible for the full cost of the medication.
  • Coupons have expiration dates after which they cannot be used.
  • Even with a coupon, Uceris can remain expensive, and your insurance may not fully cover the balance.

Although coupons can provide some relief, they do not offer a sustainable solution to the financial challenges posed by medications like Uceris. That’s where The Rx Advocates can make a real difference. By granting you access to the Uceris patient assistance program, we can provide greater long-term savings.

Cost of Uceris without a coupon

As of January 2024, the average retail cost of Uceris is $2,127.00.

These costs vary depending on the pharmacy you visit, your location, the dosage prescribed by your healthcare provider, and whether you are commercially insured. These factors can make it difficult for many people to afford Uceris without some form of financial assistance. We understand how overwhelmed you are by high prescription drug costs, and we can help you access Uceris and other expensive medications. Applying for the Uceris patient assistance program will save you substantially more than a savings card or coupon.

Uceris uses, dosage, alternatives, and other FAQs

Uceris, also known as budesonide (generic name) and Pulmicort (another brand name), is available in many forms, including an inhaler, topical cream, nebulization solution, pill, nasal spray, and rectal foam. Uceris is used to treat adults diagnosed with a wide range of conditions.

Clinical studies have revealed that topical use of budesonide yields considerable improvement in people with eosinophilic esophagitis (EE). Following these findings, the drug was developed into a tablet sold under the brand name Jorveza.

Your healthcare provider will determine your dosage, which varies based on the condition it is being used to treat. Read the prescribing information on your medication packaging and ask your doctor for further advice. On average, those with ulcerative colitis will typically be prescribed a 9 mg tablet once per day for at least eight weeks. For those using the inhaler, doses range from 180–720 mcg twice daily for at least two weeks. For the rectal foam, the typical recommendation is one metered dose rectally twice a day for up to 14 days followed by a metered dose once a day for 28 days. Each metered dose of Uceris rectal foam contains about 2 mg of budesonide.

The following are tips on using your Uceris rectal foam properly:

  • This medication should only be used by those with active mild to moderate ulcerative colitis in the distal portion of the rectum (from the rectum to the sigmoid colon). It is for rectal use only and should not be ingested.
  • Empty your bowels before each use.
  • Before using, warm the canister in your hands while shaking it vigorously for at least 15 seconds.
  • You can administer the drug in whichever position is most comfortable for you (e.g., lying, sitting, standing, stooping down).
  • Administer your evening dose just before you go to bed and resist the urge to empty your bowels until the next morning.
  • Avoid grapefruit juice and any other source of CYP3A4 inhibitors, as these may increase the level of Uceris in your blood, causing a systemic corticosteroid effect.

Uceris does not cure ulcerative colitis. However, it can decrease the severity of abdominal pain, diarrhea, bloody stools, and other gastrointestinal symptoms. People with IBD often experience depression because their frequent bowel disturbances prevent them from engaging in normal activities, such as going out with friends. Finding symptom relief helps them reclaim their lives. With The Rx Advocates, you won’t have to worry about the cost of this drug, as we can help you access the Uceris patient assistance program, which grants substantial savings.

If you have already started taking Uceris and are uncomfortable with its adverse effects, you may want to consider other forms of treatment. However, always consult with your doctor before stopping any medication. You can then consider the following alternative medications:

Uceris contraindications and adverse effects

Although usually tolerated well, Uceris rectal foam is not for everyone. It is contraindicated for those with a history of allergic reactions to budesonide. Tell your doctor your full medical history, as some medical conditions warrant using Uceris with caution or avoiding it altogether:

  • A personal or family history of diabetes
  • Moderate to severe liver disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Gastrointestinal issues, such as stomach/intestinal ulcers, diverticulitis, and a history of gastrointestinal surgeries
  • Plans to have surgery or become pregnant

If you live or work with people who are frequently sick, you should also avoid using Uceris, as it suppresses your immune system, making you prone to infections.

Common adverse effects of Uceris

Commonly reported adverse effects of Uceris include headache, nausea, acne, respiratory tract infections, and hypertension. These reactions usually go away without medical attention as the body adjusts to the drug. If these common reactions persist or worsen, however, call your healthcare provider.

Serious adverse effects of Uceris

Uceris may cause serious adverse effects, especially in people who use it chronically or have specific comorbid conditions. You should seek medical attention immediately if you or your loved one taking Uceris experiences any of the following serious adverse effects:
