Am I eligible for the Vyvanse patient assistance program?

If you meet the eligibility criteria for the Vyvanse patient assistance program, you could receive your medication without paying the full retail price. Prescription Care reviews each Vyvanse assistance program application individually, although the main factors considered by most programs are:

  • US residency
  • Combined household income
  • Insurance status
General income criteria
  • Up to $36,000
  • Up to $50,000
  • Up to $100,000
 

How do I apply for the Vyvanse patient assistance program? 

Prescription Care makes it as simple as possible to apply for the Vyvanse patient assistance program. Just fill in our enrollment application, and tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Vyvanse. We’ll ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income too, as this information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that ship your medication.

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

Is Prescription Care a Vyvanse coupon provider?

Prescription Care is not a Vyvanse discount coupon, a Vyvanse discount card, or a Vyvanse copay card. We don’t offer printable Vyvanse manufacturer coupons, Vyvanse discounts, rebates, Vyvanse savings cards, trial offers, or free Vyvanse samples.

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Vyvanse patient assistance program. If you’re looking for coupons for Vyvanse or cheap Vyvanse, keep in mind you can likely save more with Prescription Care. When obtaining your Vyvanse medication through Prescription Care, your total cost for the medication will always be $49 per month.

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

If your insurance company won’t pay for your Vyvanse medication, you don’t have insurance, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility, we may still be able to help. Please contact one of our customer service representatives to discuss your situation. 

How much is Vyvanse with insurance?

The cost of Vyvanse varies according to your healthcare plan. Your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance. Remember, if you’re approved for assistance, you’ll likely save more if you get your Vyvanse medication through Prescription Care.

How much is Vyvanse without insurance?

Vyvanse prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it and the number of capsules per pack. You can expect to pay anywhere between $200 and $250 for a pack of 30 capsules. A pack of 60 capsules will likely be between $400 and $500, while it will cost between $590 and $770 for a pack of 90 capsules. With Prescription Care you’ll always pay a flat monthly fee of $49.

What is Vyvanse?

Vyvanse is a medication prescribed to treat Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children aged six years and older. It’s also used to treat moderate to severe Binge Eating Disorder (BED) in adults. The medication is taken orally, usually as capsules or chewable tablets. 

ADHD is a disorder that affects the development of the brain. It can cause difficulties in paying attention, excessive activity, impulsive behavior, and difficulties with regulating emotions. Usually diagnosed in childhood, often between the ages of six and 12, ADHD can disrupt the life of the sufferer. It can impact performance at school and interfere with home life.

BED is an eating disorder that causes binge eating episodes where people compulsively eat large amounts of food. Unlike the similar eating disorder bulimia, people with BED don’t purge the food (such as by vomiting). BED is thought to be the most common eating disorder, even though it receives less media attention than others, like anorexia and bulimia. There are several negative physical, psychological, and social consequences of BED. Often people experience weight gain and obesity, as well as depression, low self-esteem, feelings of guilt, and social isolation.

Vyvanse helps with both conditions. It causes your brain to release larger amounts of the chemicals that send messages between your neurons. This increase in activity is associated with improved control over behavior and reductions in hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity.

Vyvanse active ingredients

The active ingredient in Vyvanse is called lisdexamfetamine. When lisdexamfetamine is swallowed, it’s absorbed through the digestive system into the blood. Once absorbed, it’s then broken down inside blood cells into a chemical called dextroamphetamine. Dextroamphetamine then passes into your brain through your blood. It causes neurotransmitters (the messenger molecules that allow your neurons to communicate with each other) to be released, increasing brain activity. 

Research has shown this increase in brain activity can ease the symptoms of ADHD and BED. It can increase attention and focus, and reduce hyperactivity, impulsivity, and disruptive behavior. 

Vyvanse side effects & Vyvanse drug interactions

Like all medications, Vyvanse can have side effects. Not everyone will experience side effects though or get the same ones. The most common Vyvanse side effects include decreased appetite, weight loss, diarrhea, dizziness, dry mouth, irritability, insomnia, nausea and vomiting, and upper abdominal pain.

More serious, but rarer side effects can include increases in blood pressure and heart rate, suppression of growth in children, and psychological reactions like anxiety, depression, and mania.

These aren’t all the side effects Vyvanse can cause. You can find more details on the side effects in the patient leaflet that comes with your medication. If you have any concerns about Vyvanse side effects, talk to your physician or a pharmacist.

Vyvanse can interact with other medications. This can change how Vyvanse and the other medications work and can make side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, including vitamins and dietary supplements. 

In particular, tell them if you’re taking:

  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), like selegiline, isocarboxazid, phenelzine, or tranylcypromine
  • Other medications that affect your serotonin system, like SSRI or SNRI antidepressants, triptans, fentanyl, or St. John’s Wort
  • CYP2D6 inhibitors, like paroxetine, fluoxetine, quinidine, or ritonavir
  • Urinary alkalinizing agents, like acetazolamide
  • Urinary acidifying agents, like ammonium chloride, sodium acid, phosphate, or methenamine salts
  • Tricyclic antidepressants, like desipramine or protriptyline

*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.
