Is Prescription Care a Xolair coupon provider?

Prescription Care is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Xolair patient assistance program. Our service does not extend to being a Xolair coupon, a Xolair discount card, or a Xolair copay card. Neither do we offer printable Xolair manufacturer coupons, Xolair discounts, rebates, Xolair savings cards, trial offers, or free Xolair samples.

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

We may be able to help you if your insurance company won’t pay for your Xolair medication, or you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may even be able to assist if you don’t have insurance. 

How much is Xolair with insurance?

The cost of Xolair will depend on the details of 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 Xolair medication through Prescription Care.

How much is Xolair without insurance?

Xolair prices without insurance will vary depending on where you buy it from and if you purchase the pre-filled syringes or the powder for subcutaneous injection. As a guide, you can expect to pay over $1,000 for a 150 mg pack of powder for injection. Remember, with Prescription Care you’ll always pay a flat monthly fee of $49.

What is Xolair?

Xolair is a prescription medication used to treat severe allergic asthma in adults and children aged six years and over. It’s prescribed when asthma is persistent and doesn’t improve after treatment with corticosteroids. Xolair is taken by injecting it under the skin. You can buy it as a powder that needs to be mixed into a solution before injecting, or in pre-filled single-dose syringes.

The medication can also be used to treat an allergic skin condition called chronic spontaneous urticaria, more commonly called hives. It can be prescribed to adults and children aged 12 years and over for this condition.

Asthma is a disease that causes the lungs and airways to become inflamed. This inflammation narrows airways and reduces lung capacity. It can make you wheeze and cough, make your chest feel tight, and can make it difficult to breathe. 

Allergic asthma is asthma caused by an allergic reaction, such as a reaction to pollen, dust mites, or tobacco smoke. When you inhale such substances, your immune system reacts to them, even though they aren’t usually harmful. This triggers the inflammation that causes your asthma.

Hives are a kind of skin rash that’s also often caused by an allergic reaction. The rash is usually formed of red, raised, itchy bumps that can also burn and sting. As you come into contact with a substance that triggers your allergy, your immune system causes the inflammation in your skin that leads to the formation of hives.

Xolair helps with both allergic asthma and hives by stopping your immune system from causing inflammation. This can reduce the severity of allergic asthma and hives, providing relief from their symptoms. 

Xolair active ingredients

The active ingredient in Xolair is called omalizumab. It works by blocking the antibodies your immune system releases that cause inflammation.

Inflammation is a natural response triggered by your immune system to protect yourself from harmful substances and to get rid of them. It’s caused by the release of a type of immune system protein called an antibody. In the case of allergic reactions, your immune system can cause inflammation that’s not needed, and that can lead to health conditions like asthma or hives. Omalizumab helps with this by attaching itself to the antibodies, stopping them from working, and halting the inflammation process.

Xolair side effects & Xolair drug interactions

The most common Xolair side effects include headaches, joint pain, upper respiratory chest infections, and skin reactions at the site of injection like pain, swelling, and itchiness. Additional common side effects in children include fever and stomach pain. In rarer cases, Xolair can cause more serious side effects. These can include allergic reactions to Xolair, or the medical conditions systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), serum sickness, Churg-Strauss syndrome, or hypereosinophilic syndrome. If you have any concerns about Xolair side effects, talk to your physician or a pharmacist.

These aren’t all the side effects Xolair can cause. A full list of possible Xolair side effects can be found in the patient leaflet that comes with your medication.

When Xolair interacts with other medications, it can become less effective and can cause more serious side effects to occur. Drugs that are known or thought to interact with Xolair include:

  • Medications used to treat parasitic infections
  • Inhaled corticosteroids to treat allergic asthma
  • Any other medications used to treat allergic asthma

Xolair warnings & precautions

Don’t take Xolair if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient omalizumab
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Xolair (you can find these listed in the leaflet which comes with the medication)
  • Are allergic to latex (the needle cap of the syringe may contain latex)
  • Are under six years of age for the treatment of allergic asthma
  • Are under 12 years of age for the treatment of hives (chronic spontaneous urticaria)
  • Are using it to treat allergic conditions other than allergic asthma or hives (chronic spontaneous urticaria)

Talk to your physician before using Xolair if you:

  • Have a kidney or liver condition
  • Have an autoimmune disease
  • Have ever had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) brought on by other medication or by non-medical causes, like an insect bite or by food
  • Are pregnant or trying to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding

Xolair should not be used to treat the onset of severe asthma symptoms (like an asthma attack). You should carry a rescue inhaler to treat severe symptoms, or any other medication your physician has recommended to you.

*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.
