What is Olumiant?
Olumiant (baricitinib) is a medication prescribed for adults with moderate or severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who have not responded well to first-line treatment with other medications, specifically TNF (tumor necrosis factor) agonists.
Unlike other medications used to treat RA, Olumiant is taken orally. It is not injected.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Rheumatoid arthritis is a painful and debilitating autoimmune disease that can seriously impair one’s quality of life. Patients who find relief by taking Olumiant understandably worry about not being able to maintain an uninterrupted supply given the high cost of prescription drugs in the United States.
Simplefill is committed to helping people get the help they need to ensure that they’re never unable to refill their Olumiant prescription. We’ve made it our mission to be the bridge that connects people who can’t afford their prescriptions with the prescription assistance programs that can help them.
How Does Olumiant Work?
RA is an autoimmune disease characterized by inflammation of the joints that is the result of an overabundance of cytokines, proteins secreted by certain immune system cells. Too few cytokines are a bad thing because cytokines are crucial to mounting an effective immune response. But too many cytokines are also bad because of the resulting inflammation.
There are several different types of cytokines. First-line treatment for RA targets certain cytokines called tumor necrosis factors. Olumiant, a second-line treatment, inhibits the action of a different family of cytokines known as Janus Kinases (JAK). By suppressing two subtypes, JAK 1 and JAK 2, Olumiant reduces inflammation in the joints.
