Is Prescription Care considered a Alinia coupon?

 The Alinia patient assistance program offered to eligible enrollees through Prescription Care is not a coupon, generic Alinia, or a discount card. Prescription Care does not offer printable coupons, rebates, savings cards, trial offers, or free samples.  

If you are looking for an Alinia coupon, keep in mind that you can likely save more on the medication via Prescription Care. When obtaining your Alinia medication via Prescription Care, your total cost for the medication will never be more than $49 per month. 


What is Alinia prescribed for?

Alinia is prescribed to adults and children suffering from diarrhea caused by giardiasis or cryptosporidiosis. 

This medication is generally not prescribed to treat any other giardiasis and/or cryptosporidiosis symptoms (e.g. nausea, vomiting, fever, cramps).  

To experience the greatest health benefits, take Alinia exactly as prescribed to you.  

Active Ingredient 

The active ingredient in Alinia  is nitazoxanide, a synthetic antiprotozoal that works by stopping the growth of infecting organisms.  


Conditions treated by Alinia

Diarrhea Caused by Giardiasis  

Giardiasis is a small intestine infection caused by Giardia lamblia parasites. The infection can be transmitted through contaminated food/water and person-to-person contact. 

 Some people may carry the parasite without developing any symptoms. Those who get sick tend to experience watery, foul-smelling diarrhea that can alternate with soft, greasy stools.  

Giardiasis is diagnosed by submitting stool samples for testing. In some cases, enteroscopy may also be required. Although the infection typically clears up within a few weeks, remaining intestinal problems may require treatment with medications. 

Diarrhea Caused by Cryptosporidiosis 

Cryptosporidiosis is a contagious disease caused by a parasite known as Cryptosporidium. This condition can affect the intestines, stomach, lungs, and liver. 

Cryptosporidium can be found in water, food, and soil. People can become infected by swallowing the parasite through consuming water and food, as well as swimming water.  

The most common symptom of cryptosporidiosis is watery diarrhea that lasts more than a few days. Though the infection typically goes away within 2 weeks, the infection can become life-threatening for people with lowered immune systems. If you have watery diarrhea that does not improve within a few days, contact your doctor as medication or treatment may be needed


*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as Prescription Care assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (Refund).

To receive a Refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 866-262-2603, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
