Xofluza - Overview
Xofluza (baloxavir marboxil) is a medication used in the treatment of acute, uncomplicated influenza in adult patients. People who might need a Xofluza prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Xofluza when appropriate to do so.
Xofluza - Mechanism of Action
Xofluza, containing the active ingredient baloxavir marboxil, belongs to a class of medications known as polymerase acidic (PA) endonuclease inhibitors. Xofluza is thought to work by blocking the enzymatic activity of a protein in the influenza virus. In doing so, baloxavir helps block gene transcription. The effect of this behavior is to impair the ability of the influenza virus to replicate itself. Xofluza, like Tamiflu (oseltamivir), is sometimes indicated for the treatment of acute uncomplicated influenza in adult patients and some older children. Xofluza will not treat bacterial infections that coexist with influenza infections. Some influenza viruses have demonstrated resistance to baloxavir due to the presence of amino acid substitutions in the target protein.
Xofluza - Dosing and Price
Xofluza is generally prescribed as a single dose taken orally within 48 hours of the start of symptoms. Xofluza can be taken with or without food. The dose of baloxavir marboxil used (Xofluza 40 mg or Xofluza 80 mg) depends on the weight of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Following oral administration, baloxavir marboxil is converted by the body into the metabolite baloxavir and is subsequently mostly excreted in the feces. Although Xofluza only requires a single dose, Xofluza is expensive, costing almost $160 for a Xofluza 80 mg dose pack. The price of a Xofluza prescription may be partially or fully covered by some insurance plans. Xofluza coupons may also be available online or through the manufacturer. Xofluza is available as Xofluza 20 mg tablets and Xofluza 40 mg tablets. Xofluza tablets are white to yellow in color and should be stored in its blister packaging between 20° C and 25° C.
