What Is Rybelsus?
Rybelsus (semaglutide) is prescribed to lower blood sugar (glucose) levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. It is most effective when used in combination with diet and exercise.
Rybelsus comes in 7 and 14 mg tablets and is taken by mouth, with a small amount (less than 4 ounces) of water on an empty stomach upon awakening. Nothing further should be consumed for at least 30 minutes after taking Rybelsus.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
People living with type 2 diabetes have plenty to be concerned about. Lowering high blood sugar levels is critical to preventing complications like cardiovascular disease, peripheral neuropathy, kidney disease or kidney failure, vision loss, bacterial and fungal skin infections, amputations, and more. Preventing such complications requires constant management of blood sugar levels, which in turn requires an uninterrupted supply of the medications prescribed for that purpose, such as Rybelsus.
Maintaining that uninterrupted supply of Rybelsus can be a major financial burden, even for people with prescription coverage, due to high copays and other out-of-pocket costs. The resulting level of financial stress makes life all the more difficult for patients and their families. And missing doses in an attempt to make their medication stretch further endangers their health.
Help is available in the form of patient assistance programs, but many people who need it don’t know that it even exists. At Simplefill, we have made it our mission to raise awareness about patient assistance and connect those who need help with the programs that offer it.
How Does Rybelsus Work?
Rybelsus is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist, a class of medications also known as GLP-1 receptor agonists, incretin mimetics, or GLP-1 analogs. It works in three different ways. First, it stimulates the pancreas to release more insulin when blood sugar is elevated. It also limits the amount of sugar produced by the liver and slows the rate at which food leaves the stomach.
