Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic medical conditions such as chronic angina. Continue reading to learn about our Ranexa patient assistance program, and apply today.

What Is Ranexa?

Ranexa (ranolazine) is prescribed for adults diagnosed with chronic angina—recurring pain in the chest, jaw, shoulder, back, or arm, which is common in people with coronary artery disease. Ranexa often is prescribed in conjunction with heart or blood pressure medications. It is not intended for use during an acute angina episode. Rather, it serves a preventive purpose when taken regularly.

Ranexa comes in tablet form and is typically taken twice daily, with or without food.

What Does Simplefill Provide?

Chronic angina is a sign that the heart muscle is not receiving enough oxygen, and the pain tends to be triggered during activity or under stress. Living with chronic angina can in itself be very stressful because an episode of angina can easily be mistaken for a heart attack. With a retail cost between $400 and $500 per month, the expense of maintaining an uninterrupted supply of Ranexa can also cause financial issues that only add to that stress.

Here at Simplefill, we don’t think anyone should have to be stressed out by the prospect of not being able to pay for essential medications needed to manage a chronic disease. It’s unfortunate that many people in that position don’t know that there are patient assistance programs that can reduce their out-of-pocket costs for high-priced prescriptions.

That’s why we focused on raising public awareness about patient assistance programs, which is only part of our mission. The other part is the role we play in bridging the gap between those in need of patient assistance and the programs and organizations that can provide it.

How Does Ranexa Work?

Angina occurs when the arteries leading to the heart become stiffened, and blood flow to the heart is reduced. Ranexa helps the heart use oxygen more efficiently, even when blood flow is less than normal. Calcium ions entering heart muscle cells normally cause the heart muscle to contract. Ranexa reduces the flow of calcium ions into those cells, which improves blood flow to the heart muscle and helps the heart relax.
