Is Prescription Care considered a Amitiza coupon?

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

If you are looking for a Amitiza coupon, keep in mind that you can likely save more on the medication via Prescription Care. When obtaining your Amitiza medication via Prescription Care, your total cost for the medication will always be $49 per month.

What is Amitiza prescribed for?

Amitiza is prescribed to patients with certain kinds of constipation such as chronic idiopathic constipation and opioid-induced constipation. The medication is also indicated to treat constipation in women suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.

Active Ingredient

The active ingredient of Amitiza is lubiprostone, which stimulates the production of more fluid in the gastrointestinal tract. The fluid mixes with stool, making the passing of stool easier.


Conditions treated by Amitiza

Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC) in Adults

Chronic idiopathic constipation is not caused by an underlying disease, nor is it the result of side effects from medications. Patients are diagnosed with this condition if they have fewer than three bowel movements each week. Stomach pain, gas, and bloating are also common symptoms.

Opioid-Induced Constipation

Opioid-induced constipation affects people who use opioid drugs to manage chronic pain. Patients who have constipation as a result of side effects from pain-medications like morphine, oxycodone, and fentanyl, are likely to benefit from Amitiza treatment. The efficacy of Amitiza has not been proven in patients taking methadone or diphenylheptane opioids.

Constipation Caused by Irritable Bowel Syndrome in Women

Irritable bowel syndrome is a common chronic disorder of the large intestine. Common symptoms include stomach pain and bloating. In some female patients, the condition also manifests in constipation.

*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.
