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

If you are commercially insured and you cannot afford your copay or co-insurance you can opt for purchasing glycopyrrolate 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 glycopyrrolate 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.

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

Our website gives savings options to customers who wish to purchase glycopyrrolate, 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 glycopyrrolate when using the Rx Advantage Card?

Your out-of-pocket (OOP) cost will effectively be the discounted cash price you pay for glycopyrrolate 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 glycopyrrolate cash price you pay can be typically cheaper than your plan copay.

Is there a glycopyrrolate co-pay program?

Generic medications like glycopyrrolate do not have co-pay card savings options. A Copay program, if available, would normally be for the brand name version of glycopyrrolate. You can search the brand name of glycopyrrolate 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 glycopyrrolate Patient Assistance Program (PAP)?

Generic medications like glycopyrrolate do not have PAP savings options. A Patient assistance program, if available would normally be for the brand name version of glycopyrrolate. You can search the brand name of glycopyrrolate 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 glycopyrrolate?

Call your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention if your symptoms do not improve or they become worse after using glycopyrrolate. 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 glycopyrrolate. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.

Conditions treated by glycopyrrolate

Glycopyrrolate is a medication that is commonly used for various medical purposes. It belongs to a class of drugs known as anticholinergics, which work by blocking the effects of a certain natural substance called acetylcholine in the body. This helps to reduce or control certain symptoms or conditions.

One of the primary uses of glycopyrrolate is in the treatment of excessive sweating, a condition medically known as hyperhidrosis. It is often used as a topical solution or gel that is applied to the affected areas, such as the underarms, palms, or soles of the feet. By blocking the sweat glands, glycopyrrolate helps to reduce excessive sweating and improve the quality of life for those suffering from this condition.

Another common use of glycopyrrolate is as a preoperative medication. It is often given to patients before surgery to help reduce excess saliva and secretions in the respiratory tract. This can be particularly useful in surgeries involving the head and neck, as it helps to improve visibility and prevent complications during the procedure.

Glycopyrrolate solution is also used to reduce excessive drooling caused by medical conditions such as cerebral palsy in pediatric patients 3 to 16 years of age. Glycopyrrolate is also used to manage certain symptoms associated with gastrointestinal disorders, such as peptic ulcers or irritable bowel syndrome. It can help to reduce stomach acid production, relieve abdominal cramps, and regulate bowel movements.

In addition, glycopyrrolate may be used in the treatment of certain respiratory conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. It helps to relax the muscles in the airways, making it easier to breathe and reducing symptoms such as wheezing and shortness of breath.

How does glycopyrrolate work?

Glycopyrrolate is an anticholinergic medication that works by reducing the production of saliva and other body fluids. It blocks the action of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in the stimulation of secretions.

Forms of glycopyrrolate available

Glycopyrrolate is available in the form of oral tablets and injections.

Dosage of glycopyrrolate

The dosage forms of glycopyrrolate may vary depending on the individual’s specific condition and response to treatment. It is important to follow the recommended dosage instructions provided by the healthcare provider. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.

Directions for glycopyrrolate use

Glycopyrrolate should be taken exactly as directed by the healthcare provider. The tablets are usually taken orally with or without food. The injection is administered by a healthcare professional. Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

Drug interactions

Contraindications with specific medications: It is important to avoid the use of glycopyrrolate if you are taking certain medications such as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) or tricyclic antidepressants, as these can potentially interact and lead to serious side effects. Always consult your healthcare provider before starting or stopping any medication.

Potential interactions with other anticholinergic drugs: When using glycopyrrolate, it is crucial to be cautious when combining it with other anticholinergic drugs like atropine or scopolamine. These combinations may intensify the anticholinergic effects, leading to increased dry mouth, constipation, blurred vision, and urinary retention. Your doctor should be informed about all the medications you are taking to avoid adverse reactions.

Effects of glycopyrrolate on drug metabolism: Glycopyrrolate has been observed to inhibit certain enzymes involved in drug metabolism, particularly those belonging to the cytochrome P450 family. This can result in altered blood levels and potential interactions with other drugs that are metabolized by these enzymes. Careful monitoring and dose adjustments may be necessary when using glycopyrrolate alongside such medications.

Impact of certain foods on glycopyrrolate absorption:

  • High-fat meals may delay the absorption of glycopyrrolate, leading to a slower onset of action
  • Grapefruit and grapefruit juice can inhibit the enzyme responsible for breaking down glycopyrrolate, potentially increasing its concentration in the body

Warnings and precautions for glycopyrrolate

  • Glycopyrrolate may have certain risks and potential side effects. It is important to discuss these with a healthcare provider before starting the medication
  • It may cause drowsiness, dizziness, and blurred vision. It is important to avoid activities that require alertness until the effects of the medication are known
  • Inform your healthcare provider about any existing medical conditions, especially glaucoma, heart problems, kidney disease, or digestive disorders
  • Pregnant women should avoid using glycopyrrolate due to the potential risks

  • Individuals with a history of urinary retention should exercise caution when using glycopyrrolate as it may exacerbate this condition
  • If you have liver impairment, it is recommended to use glycopyrrolate cautiously and under the guidance of a healthcare professional. Regular monitoring of liver function may be required during treatment
  • Elderly patients with cognitive impairment should use glycopyrrolate cautiously due to potential adverse effects on memory and confusion
  • Patients with a history of hiatal hernia, gastrointestinal blockage, paralytic ileus, reflux esophagitis, severe ulcerative colitis, or toxic megacolon should exercise caution when taking glycopyrrolate to avoid worsening their condition
  • Use caution in patients with hiatal hernia with reflux esophagitis
  • You should not use glycopyrrolate if you have myasthenia gravis (a disorder of the nervous system that causes muscle weakness)
  • Individuals with cardiac arrhythmias should be aware that glycopyrrolate may affect heart rate and rhythm, necessitating careful monitoring during treatment

The use of glycopyrrolate during pregnancy and breast feeding should be discussed with a healthcare provider. It should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefits outweigh the risks.

Possible side effects of glycopyrrolate
