What is Nuplazid?
Nuplazid (pimayanserin) is most commonly used to help control psychosis, mood disorders, or halucinations that may arise as a result of Parkinson’s disease. It is categorized as an anti-psychotic medication, but it works through a different mechanism of action than other anti-psychotic medications. It has been proven to reduce both the frequency and severity of delusions or hallucinations in patients with Parkinsonism.
Nuplazid is taken by mouth with or without food, usually once daily. Once treatment begins, it can take up to six weeks to feel the full effects of Nuplazid.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Managing serious chronic illnesses like Parkinson’s disease can be very difficult on patients and their loved ones. The stress of managing such a potentially debilitating and progressive disease can be profound, and only made worse by financial worries stemming from high prescription drug costs. It is important not to let financial challenges stand in the way of receiving needed medication.
Simplefill advocates will work on your behalf to find the best Nuplazid assistance programs to help you with the cost of your prescription.
How Does Nuplazid Work?
Nuplazid is a selective serotonin inverse agonist (SIA). It affects serotonin receptors without blocking dopamine receptors.
This means that its antipsychotic effects don’t come at the cost of aggravating the motor symptoms—for example, tremors, rigidity, and walking difficulties—that are characteristic of Parkinson’s disease. Nuplazid also doesn’t carry the risk of tardive dyskinesia (certain involuntary movements that can become permanent), which is a major concern with other anti-psychotics.
