Is Prescription Care considered a Marinol coupon?

HIV/AIDS Induced Anorexia  

Anorexia is the loss of appetite or aversion to food. The reduced intake of food means less nutrients and calories, leading to the body burning fat and muscle stores. Without treatment, this can result in significant and dangerous weight loss.   

For people living with HIV and AIDS, anorexia is a common complication that severely affects health by weakening already-compromised immune systems. Marinol can stimulate appetite, allowing for increased food and nutrient intake. This can help HIV and AIDS patients fight infections and maintain a better quality of life. 

Nausea and Vomiting Post-Chemotherapy   

Cancer patients who have gone through chemotherapy often experience serious nausea and vomiting. This can lead to drastic weight loss and discomfort. If other drugs which control these chemo side effects are unsuccessful, Marinol may be prescribed.   


What is Marinol prescribed for?

Marinol is used to treat nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy individuals when other treatments have failed. The drug is also prescribed to stimulate appetite and reduce weight loss in people experiencing HIV/AIDS-induced anorexia.

Active Ingredient 

The active ingredient in Marinol is dronabinol, a cannabinoid. It is the man-made form of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the natural ingredient found in marijuana (cannabis). THC helps to reduce pain, relieve nausea, and stimulate appetite.

*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.
