Is Prescription Care considered a Janumet coupon?

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

What is Janumet prescribed for?

Janumet is a combination drug prescribed to adult patients with type 2 diabetes. The medication helps lower blood sugar and is typically used along with a personalized diet and exercise program. 

 Janumet can be used alone or in combination with insulin, sulphonylureas, or glitazones. The drug should not be used by individuals with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis.  

Active Ingredient  

Janumet contains two active substances: sitagliptin and metformin. Sitagliptin increases the levels of incretins (a natural substance that helps to increase insulin release) while decreasing the amount of glucose produced by the liver.  

Metformin helps to restore the body’s response to the insulin it naturally produces. 

Conditions treated by Janumet

Type 2 Diabetes 

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way the body regulates glucose. With type 2 diabetes, the body becomes resistant to the effects of – and/or doesn’t produce enough – insulin.   

This condition develops slowly and often affects individuals over the age of 45. Common symptoms include increased thirst and/or hunger, frequent urination, fatigue, blurred vision, and unintended weight loss.    

If left untreated, type 2 diabetes can lead to seizures, hypoglycemia, heart attack, vision problems, and ketoacidosis. Type 2 diabetes is usually managed with a combination of physical activity and a healthy diet. Because the condition is progressive, most patients will also require medications and/or insulin injections over time.  

*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.
