What is Praluent?
Praluent (alirocumab) is a medication prescribed to reduce “bad” cholesterol levels in the blood. It is often prescribed for adults suffering from heart disease. Praluent reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, and chest pain associated with unstable angina. Combining this medication with a low-fat diet has been found to reduce high LDL cholesterol levels caused by primary hyperlipidemia or familial (inherited) hypercholesterolemia.
Praluent is self-administered by subcutaneous injection, typically every two weeks.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill is the one-stop solution for those having difficulty keeping up with the high cost of the medications they need to manage chronic conditions. Managing a chronic and potentially life-threatening illness like heart disease can be stressful as it is. Add the strain of coping with financial problems, and that stress can have a negative impact on treatment outcomes.
Simplefill aims to relieve that financial stress by finding the patient assistance programs that can help you, whether you’re uninsured, underinsured, or are simply having trouble coming up with enough money for the co-pays for your Praluent prescription.
How does Praluent Work?
Praluent inhibits the PCSK9 protein that binds to the low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) that removes LDL (bad) cholesterol from circulation. In binding to LDLR, PCSK9 degrades LDLR, decreasing the amount of LDL cholesterol removed from circulation. By inhibiting PCSK9, Praluent prevents degradation of the receptor so that LDL cholesterol continues to be removed from circulation.
