What is Rinvoq?
Rinvoq (upadacitinib) is prescribed for adults with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis who did not get sufficient relief from methotrexate or who cannot take methotrexate. Some people may be prescribed Rinvoq in combination with methotrexate.
Rinvoq comes in tablet form and is taken by mouth, once daily, with or without food.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the joints, causing painful inflammation and swelling of the synovial membrane lining the joints. Eventually, active rheumatoid arthritis can erode bone and deform the joints, particularly in the hands. In severe cases, the skin, eyes, heart, lungs, blood, and nerves can also be affected. It is a lifelong condition that involves exacerbations (flares) and remissions. The treatment goal is to prevent flares and extend remissions.
Achieving that goal and preventing the most serious consequences of rheumatoid arthritis requires an uninterrupted supply of costly medications such as Rinvoq. That is not always possible for people who are struggling financially, especially those who are uninsured or underinsured. Simplefill aims to make sure that those who need help paying for essential medications can get prescription assistance.
How does Rinvoq Work?
Inflammatory cytokines are proteins that initiate the inflammatory immune response against invading pathogens. Janus kinases are enzymes that play a role in the cytokine signaling that creates inflammation. Rinvoq is classified as a Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor. It blocks the action of those enzymes, which disrupts the inflammatory process.
