Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic diseases, such as epilepsy. Continue reading to learn about our Fycompa patient assistance program, and apply today.
What Is Fycompa?
Fycompa (perampanel) is an anticonvulsant prescribed, often with other medications, to treat people over the age of 12 who have partial or tonic-clonic seizures. It should be taken regularly, and only be discontinued by gradually decreasing the dosage. The Drug Enforcement Administration has listed Fycompa as a Schedule III controlled substance because it can be addictive in high doses.
Fycompa is taken once daily by mouth, usually at bedtime.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Epilepsy is a difficult disease to live with. Many people with epilepsy fear being injured by a fall or accident that occurs during a seizure, and the unpredictability of seizures can take a toll on an epileptic’s social life. Consequently patients and those who care for them have good reason to worry when they can’t afford to pay for the medications they rely on to prevent seizures. The financial burden is a lot to carry on top of everything else.
Simplefill believes that nobody should be forced to sacrifice other necessities because of high U.S. prescription costs. We know there is help out there in the form of prescription assistance programs, but people who need help often are unaware of that. We serve as a bridge between people who need help paying for drugs like Fycompa and the programs and organizations offering prescription assistance.
How Does Fycompa Work?
Medical science has not fully determined how Fycompa works. It is thought to work by blocking the action of glutamate, a neurotransmitter in the brain, by attaching to the AMPA receptors that help send and receive signals on nerve cells.
