What can I do if I am commercially insured but cannot afford my fluvoxamine?

If you are commercially insured and you cannot afford your copay or co-insurance you can opt for purchasing fluvoxamine outside of your plan using the Rx Advantage card, with costs that are usually lower than a typical plan copay. If you elect to use this method, out of pocket costs do not contribute towards your plan deductibles.

If you cannot afford the cash price possibly due to income constraints, then there is the option of applying to state assistance programs like Medicaid. Often, you may be able to receive your fluvoxamine without any costs at all. You can check Medicaid eligibility in your state by following this link HealthCare.gov. The government site is easy to use and you can select your state and it will navigate you to the appropriate contact point to make the application.

The government site is easy to use and you can select your state and it will navigate you to the appropriate contact point to make the application. State Medicaid programs may cover the full cost of your medication.

Am I eligible for the Rx Advantage Card and how much does fluvoxamine cost without insurance?

Our website gives savings options to customers who wish to purchase fluvoxamine, as either a brand or generic, without the constraints of insurance. By using the Rx Advantage Card, users can save up to 90% on the cost of their medication. The card can be used at over 65,000 pharmacies nationwide, across America. Even if you are insured, in most cases the cash price will be significantly cheaper than your existing co-pay. NowPatient is able to negotiate discounts on bulk drug purchases with pharmacy owners meaning you can access lower medication prices at nearby pharmacies using our card that can be conveniently stored in your NowPatient account.

What will my out-of-pocket cost be for fluvoxamine when using the Rx Advantage Card?

Your out-of-pocket (OOP) cost will effectively be the discounted cash price you pay for fluvoxamine using the Rx Advantage Card. If you are insured, your OOP expense can not be used against your plan deductible, if your plan has a deductible.

Yes. The Rx Advantage card is especially useful for people who have High-deductible health plans (HDHPs). It can be used for insured, uninsured, and underinsured persons.

Does the Rx Advantage Card work with Medicare or any other federal or state insurance plans?

No. We do not bill any federal or state insurance including Medicare Part D (standalone drug coverage) or Medicare Advantage (combined health and drug benefit). When you purchase your medication using the NowPatient Rx Advantage Card, you will be doing so out of pocket. The spend will not count towards your plan deductibles or gaps in the event you have a plan with a deductible. The out-of-pocket fluvoxamine cash price you pay can be typically cheaper than your plan copay.

Does the Rx Advantage Card work with Commercial Insurance?

We do not bill your commercial insurance. When you purchase your medication using the Rx Advantage Card, from NowPatient, you will be doing so out of your pocket. The spend will not count towards your plan deductibles or gaps in the event you have a plan with a deductible. The out-of-pocket fluvoxamine cash price you pay can be typically cheaper than your plan copay.

How do I check prices for fluvoxamine and how do I use the Rx Advantage Card?

You can search for the prices at nearby pharmacies using our website. Simply search your medication and enter your ZIP Code and we will show you the price of your drug at nearby pharmacies. If you are happy with the quote, you need to create an account with NowPatient and generate your card. Next, simply go to the pharmacy and fill your fluvoxamine Rx. Ask the pharmacy to run the card and check the price, even if they tell you they have another card they use. Your card is stored safely in your NowPatient account.

Do I need to pay for the Rx Advantage Card?

No. The Rx Advantage prescription savings card is FREE to use and store for NowPatient users.

Is there a fluvoxamine co-pay program?

Generic medications like fluvoxamine do not have co-pay card savings options. A Copay program, if available, would normally be for the brand name version of fluvoxamine. You can search the brand name of fluvoxamine and check to see if a co-pay program exists. Co-pay cards are programs run by pharmaceutical companies that offer you a direct way to lower your out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs for eligible patients. The copay cards essentially allow physicians to prescribe medications that are clinically preferred.

Is there a fluvoxamine Patient Assistance Program (PAP)?

Generic medications like fluvoxamine do not have PAP savings options. A Patient assistance program, if available would normally be for the brand name version of fluvoxamine. You can search the brand name of fluvoxamine and check to see if a co-PAP exists. PAPs are programs that are run and sponsored by pharmaceutical companies. They offer uninsured, insured, or underinsured individuals access to high-cost brand-name medications, which may otherwise be unaffordable.

What should I do if I take too much fluvoxamine?

Call your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention if your symptoms do not improve or they become worse after using fluvoxamine. You can also call 800-222-1222 to reach the American Association of Poison Control Centers or use its online resource if you think you've used too much fluvoxamine. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.

FDA approval of fluvoxamine

Fluvoxamine has received FDA approval for the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in adults and children aged 8 and older.

Is fluvoxamine available in the UK on NHS?

Fluvoxamine is available on the NHS in the UK with a prescription from a healthcare provider. The availability and specific prescribing guidelines may vary, so it is recommended to consult with a healthcare provider or pharmacist for more information.

Mechanism of action

Fluvoxamine belongs to a class of medications known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It works by increasing the levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter in the brain, which helps regulate mood and emotions.

Uses of fluvoxamine

Fluvoxamine is primarily used for the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in adults and children aged 8 and older. It may also be prescribed off-label for other conditions, such as social anxiety disorder and panic disorder.

Dosage of fluvoxamine

The dosage of fluvoxamine will depend on the individual’s age, medical condition, and response to treatment. It is important to follow the dosage instructions provided by your healthcare provider. Do not adjust the dosage or stop taking the medication without consulting your healthcare provider.

Store at room temperature away from light and moisture. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep all medications away from children and pets.

Precautions and warnings for fluvoxamine

Here are some special precautions to keep in mind:

  • Inform your healthcare provider about your medical history: It is crucial to inform your doctor about any pre-existing medical conditions you may have, such as liver or kidney problems, seizures, or any bleeding disorders. This information can help your doctor determine if fluvoxamine is the right medication for you and if any adjustments need to be made to your dosage
  • Disclose other medications and supplements: Make sure to inform your healthcare provider about any other medications, vitamins, or herbal supplements such as St. John’s Wort you are taking. Fluvoxamine may interact with certain medications, such as blood thinners, antipsychotics, or antiplatelet drugs, leading to potentially harmful side effects. Your doctor can help you make the necessary adjustments to avoid any negative interactions
  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding: If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding, it is essential to discuss this with your doctor before starting fluvoxamine. Weigh the potential benefits against the potential risks before taking this medication while breastfeeding. Your healthcare provider can guide you on the best course of action
  • Avoid abrupt discontinuation: It is generally not recommended to suddenly stop taking fluvoxamine without consulting your healthcare provider. Doing so may lead to withdrawal symptoms and worsening of symptoms. If you and your doctor decide that you no longer need fluvoxamine, they will guide you on how to gradually reduce your dosage to safely discontinue the medication
  • Driving and operating machinery: Fluvoxamine can cause drowsiness, dizziness, or blurred vision. It is important to be cautious when driving or operating machinery until you know how this medication affects you. If you experience any of these adverse effects, avoid activities that require alertness and coordination
  • Fluvoxamine may interact with certain medications, including other SSRIs, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) such as linezolid, methylene blue, phenelzine and tranylcypromine, and certain antipsychotics. It is important to inform your healthcare provider about all the medications you are taking
  • Tell your doctor if you are taking alosetron, pimozide, ramelteon, tizanidine, or thioridazine, before you start taking fluvoxamine
  • Children, teenagers, and young adults who take antidepressants to treat depression or other mental health illnesses have an increased risk of suicidal thoughts than children, teenagers, and young adults who do not take antidepressants to treat these conditions
  • Inform your healthcare professional if you or anyone in your family has bipolar disorder (manic-depressive) or has tried to commit suicide. People with bipolar disorder who take antidepressants may be at risk for switching from depression into mania
  • Fluvoxamine may cause drowsiness or dizziness, so it is important to avoid activities that require mental alertness until you know how the medication affects you
  • If you experience any signs of an allergic reaction, such as rash, itching, swelling, dizziness, or difficulty breathing, seek immediate medical attention

Side effects of fluvoxamine

In clinical trials common side effects of fluvoxamine may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dry mouth, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, and changes in appetite or weight. These side effects are usually mild and temporary. If you experience severe or persistent adverse events, consult your healthcare provider.

Drug interactions

Some medications that may interact with fluvoxamine include:

  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs): Taking fluvoxamine with MAOIs can cause a potentially life-threatening condition called serotonin syndrome, which is characterized by symptoms such as agitation, confusion, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure, fever, sweating, tremors, muscle stiffness, and in severe cases, seizures or loss of consciousness. MAOIs include medications like phenelzine and tranylcypromine
  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs): Combining fluvoxamine with other SSRIs or SNRIs such as fluoxetine citalopram, fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline, and venlafaxine may increase the risk of serotonin syndrome
  • Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs): Concurrent use of fluvoxamine with TCAs can increase the risk of serotonin syndrome. TCAs include medications like amitriptyline, nortriptyline, and imipramine
  • Warfarin and other anticoagulants: Fluvoxamine can interfere with the metabolism of warfarin and other anticoagulant medications, potentially increasing the risk of bleeding. Close monitoring of blood clotting levels is important if you are taking fluvoxamine along with any anticoagulant medication
  • Benzodiazepines and sedatives: Fluvoxamine can increase the sedative effects of benzodiazepines and other sedatives such as alprazolam/diazepam/triazolam, leading to excessive drowsiness or impaired coordination
  • Anticonvulsants: The use of fluvoxamine with anticonvulsant medications may increase the risk of seizures
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and aspirin: Taking fluvoxamine with NSAIDs such as ibuprofen or aspirin may increase the risk of bleeding
  • Antipsychotics: Fluvoxamine can interact with antipsychotic medications, potentially increasing the risk of side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, and hallucinations
  • Fluvoxamine is a cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2D6 substrate and a potent inhibitor of CYP1A2 (which metabolizes amitriptyline, clozapine, theophylline) and CYP2C19 (which metabolizes clonazepam, diazepam and phenytoin). Caution needs to be taken when taking these medications

It is important to note that this is not an exhaustive list of medications that may interact with fluvoxamine. Always consult with your healthcare provider about any potential interactions before starting or stopping any medication.
