Repatha - Overview
Repatha is a medication used for reducing the risk of myocardial infarction and stroke in some people with lipid and cholesterol disorders. People who need a Repatha prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Repatha injection medication when appropriate to do so.
What Is Repatha?
Repatha prescription medication contains evolocumab and belongs to a class of medications known as PCSK9 (proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9) inhibitor antibodies - similar to alirocumab (Praluent). By blocking PCSK9, Repatha leads to an increase in the number of low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptors (LDLRs) recycled by the liver and increases the body's capacity to remove excess LDL from the blood. As a result, Repatha's mechanism of action results in an increased removal of LDL, resulting in lower LDL-C levels in the blood. Repatha is used in some adults with specific lipid disorders to help reduce the risk of myocardial infarction and stroke. Repatha medication should be used as an adjunct to diet, exercise and other medications meant to lower lipid levels such as atorvastatin (Lipitor), ezetimibe, rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin (Zocor).
Repatha - Cost and Dosing
Repatha is available as Repatha 140 mg / mL solution in prefilled syringe and Repatha 420 mg / 3.5 mL solution in an on-body infusor prefilled syringe. Repatha is meant for subcutaneous administration in the upper arm, thigh or abdomen. Repatha is often prescribed to be administered as Repatha 140 mg every two weeks or Repatha 420 mg monthly using the administration instructions in the packaging. Following administration, the active drug in Repatha tends to reach peak concentrations in the serum in around 4 days and has an effective half life of 11-17 days. People paying out of pocket will find Repatha to be very expensive, costing over $400 for one Repatha 140 mg / 1 mL sureclick injection. Repatha coupons are sometimes available online or through the manufacturer. Also, some insurance plans may help pay for any costs associated with a Repatha injection prescription.
Can I Buy Repatha Online?
Repatha requires a prescription from a licensed medical provider to be dispensed in the United States. As a result, Repatha OTC is not available from pharmacies and one cannot just buy Repatha online. People who need a Repatha injection prescription, however, can use Push Health to consult a local medical provider who is able to prescribe the Repatha pen when appropriate to do so.
Repatha - Side Effects
Repatha prescription injections can cause side effects in some people. Prior to using a Repatha injection, it is important to discuss possible side effects with one's medical provider and pharmacist. Side effects that can result from Repatha use include, but are not limited to, redness and soreness at the injection site, upper respiratory tract infection, flu-like symptoms, back pain, and soreness in the nose and mouth. Repatha and alcohol should not be used together. People who have a known hypersensitivity to the Repatha prescription pen or other PCSK9 inhibitor antibody medications should not use Repatha prescription medication.
