How do I apply for the Toujeo patient assistance program? 

The process for applying for the Toujeo patient assistance program is simple and straightforward. Begin by filling in our enrollment application. You will need to tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Toujeo, as well as provide the details of your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This is essential for the application. 

If we determine that you may be eligible for Toujeo assistance, we’ll handle the full application process and help to enroll you in the program. Once enrolled, we’ll also request your Toujeo medication refills on your behalf for up to 1 year.

Is Prescription Care a Toujeo coupon provider?

Prescription Care is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Toujeo patient assistance program. We are not a Toujeo coupons provider, a Toujeo discount card, or a Toujeo copay card. We don’t offer printable Toujeo manufacturer coupons, Toujeo discounts, rebates, Toujeo savings cards, trial offers, or free Toujeo samples.

Obtaining your medication through the patient assistance program is likely to be a more cost-effective option than so-called cheap Toujeo. Remember you’ll only pay a flat fee of $49 every month.  

Can Prescription Care help me get Toujeo if I have insurance?

Our customer service representatives are here to help with any questions you might have. This includes your eligibility for the patient assistance program if your insurance company won’t pay for your Toujeo medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. 

How much is Toujeo with insurance?

Toujeo prices vary depending on your specific healthcare plan. If you need to calculate your copy with your current insurance, speak to your healthcare provider or pharmacist. Remember, if you’re approved for assistance, you’ll likely save more if you get your Toujeo medication through Prescription Care.

How much is Toujeo without insurance?

The cost of Toujeo without insurance will depend on whether you buy Toujeo SoloStar (450 units per pen) or Toujeo Max SoloStar (900 units per pen), how many pens per pack, and where you purchase them from. As a general guide, you can expect to page over $400 for a pack of 3 Toujeo SoloStar pens, or over $500 for a pack of 2 Toujeo Max SoloStar pens.

What is Toujeo?

Toujeo is a man-made version of insulin. It’s used to help people with type I and type II diabetes to assist them to manage their blood sugar levels. It can be prescribed to adults and children over six years of age. Toujeo is injected under the skin, usually once every 24 hours, using pre-filled pen devices. 

Diabetes is a condition that causes you to have high blood sugar levels. When you digest food, sugar is released into your blood. It’s then transported around your body in your blood to be taken to the organs and cells that use it. A hormone called insulin draws the sugar out of your blood for your organs and cells.

In people with diabetes, limited sugar is drawn out of the blood. This is usually caused by not having enough insulin, or your body not responding to insulin as efficiently as it should. Having high blood sugar levels over a long period can cause a range of serious health problems, including nerve damage, kidney disease, heart disease, and strokes. 

Toujeo helps with diabetes by encouraging your body to draw more sugar out of your blood. It’s a long-acting form of insulin that helps you maintain lower blood sugar levels over long periods of time.

Toujeo active ingredients

The active ingredient in Toujeo is insulin glargine. It’s a type of man-made insulin that’s similar to the insulin your body makes naturally. When you inject Toujeo under your skin, insulin glargine is released into your blood supply. Over time, the insulin glargine attaches itself to cells in your body. As it does so, it causes your cells to release a substance that helps them absorb sugar from your blood.

Toujeo side effects & Toujeo drug interactions

Toujeo can cause side effects. There is no guarantee you will experience them, but in some instances you could experience more severe side effects. The most common Toujeo side effects, which affect around 10% of people taking it, are reactions in the area it was injected. These can include changes in skin texture, and allergic reactions that cause inflammation and hives. 

Toujeo can cause more serious side effects, although these happen more rarely, to around 1 in 1,000 people who take the medication. These include allergic reactions to Toujeo, and vision defects, including full loss of vision. If you have any concerns about Toujeo side effects, talk to your physician or a pharmacist.

Toujeo can interact with other medications. This can change how Toujeo and the other medications work and can make some side effects more likely. This is particularly the case with medications that can make your blood sugar levels rise or fall, as you’ll need to adjust your Toujeo dosage. The following drugs are known or thought to interact with Toujeo:

  • Pioglitazone 
  • Other diabetes medications
  • Sulfonamide antibiotics
  • Beta-blockers
  • Fibrates
  • Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors
  • Pentamidine
  • Corticosteroids such as cortisone
  • Protease inhibitors for HIV
  • Diuretics 
  • Thyroid hormones

This isn’t a comprehensive list of all medications that can interact with Toujeo. 

Always tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, including any vitamins and dietary supplements. If you’re unsure of the exact ingredients of any medication, take the packaging with you when you see your physician.
