What is Xiidra?
Xiidra (lifitegrast) is prescribed to treat the symptoms of dry eye syndrome, or keratoconjunctivitis sicca, which is an inflammatory condition. The patient does not produce enough tears to lubricate the eye and protect it against infection and physical damage. Left untreated, severe dry eye can lead to vision problems and corneal abrasions or ulcers.
Sometimes prescribed in conjunction with cyclosporine (the active ingredient in Restasis), Xiidra is administered in the form of eye drops, usually twice a day. Some people experience dry eye in conjunction with Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Having a chronic medical condition like dry eye syndrome requires a constant, reliable supply of costly medications like Xiidra. Even with insurance, paying its full U.S. price is a budget buster and well beyond the reach of many.
At Simplefill, we don’t believe that anyone should have to go without important prescription medications because of cost. We know that there are programs and organizations out there offering prescription assistance, so we’ve made it our mission to be the bridge between those who need help and those who can provide it.
How does Xiidra Work?
Xiidra is classified as a lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 (LFA-1) antagonist. In a nutshell, it acts as a molecular decoy to block certain interactions at the cellular level that cause inflammation and swelling in the tissues of the eye. By blocking those interactions, Xiidra reduces inflammation and swelling.
