Simplefill helps Americans who are struggling to pay for essential medications they take to control the symptoms of chronic, progressive diseases such as Parkinson’s disease. High U.S. prescription costs should never prevent anyone from getting the medications they need. Learn more about Azilect patient assistance programs, and enroll with Simplefill today.
What is Azilect?
Azilect (rasagiline) is used to alleviate motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, including stiffness, tremors, muscle spasms, and impaired muscle control. Certain non-motor symptoms such as fatigue also respond to Azilect.
Azilect is taken orally in pill form once daily. It is often prescribed in conjunction with Levodopa.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Parkinson’s disease is an incurable neurodegenerative disorder affecting roughly one million Americans. It causes both motor and non-motor symptoms and results in progressive impairment. As it progresses, Parkinson’s requires patients to make lifestyle adjustments and can have a negative impact on quality of life. The last thing that someone with Parkinson’s needs is the added stress of worrying about how to pay for a lifetime supply of the medications that provide symptomatic relief.
That’s where we come in.
Simplefill eliminates that financial stress by connecting Parkinson’s patients to the programs and organizations that offer assistance with the cost of their Azilect prescriptions.
How does Azilect Work?
With Parkinson’s disease, the brain’s nerve cells that produce dopamine slowly die. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that sends messages to the brain cells that control and coordinate movement.
Azilect increases the amount of dopamine in the brain by blocking the action of an enzyme that keeps dopamine levels from getting too high. That’s certainly not something that Parkinson’s patients need. Blocking the action of that enzyme allows them to maintain whatever dopamine they do produce longer than would otherwise be the case.
Azilect is often prescribed with Levodopa, a chemical that the brain converts into dopamine. Azilect helps keep the dopamine produced from Levodopa from being broken down.
