NPC's mission is your health. We recognize your need for help when you are applying for discount programs for your prescription medications. We consist of friendly and experienced advocates that not only know how these free and discount programs work, but are ready to help. We are available to take your call and answer any questions you may have as you search for the right program to fit your needs.

If for any reason you are denied, we also are experienced in the best appeals process with a high success rate.


Nationwide Prescription Connection (NPC) is an experienced advocacy service that helps connect patients to manufacturer provided free and discount programs. We can help the uninsured, under insured, those in the Medicare gap also known as the "doughnut hole", or even those needing help with expensive co-pays.  Our web site makes it easy for you to enter the medications you are taking, along with some basic patient information, and then finds the program that is right for you.


Treats Disease/Condition

Uses

This medication is used to control and prevent bleeding episodes in people with low levels of factor VIII (hemophilia A). It is also used in these patients before surgery to prevent bleeding. People with low factor VIII levels are at risk for bleeding longer after an injury/surgery and for bleeding inside the body (especially into the joints and muscles). This product contains a man-made form of factor VIII, also called antihemophilic factor. This product is used to temporarily replace the missing factor VIII, a protein (clotting factor) that is normally in the blood, so that the blood can clot and the bleeding can stop. This medication should not be used to treat von Willebrand disease.

How To Use

This medication is given by injection into a vein as directed by your doctor. The medication may need to be given more slowly over a longer time depending on your dose and how you respond to it. After first receiving this medication in a hemophilia treatment center or hospital, some patients may be able to give this medication to themselves at home. If your doctor directs you to give this medication at home, read the Patient Information Leaflet available from your pharmacist before you start using this medication and each time you get a refill. Learn all preparation and usage instructions in the product package. Learn how to store and discard needles and medical supplies safely. If you have any questions, ask your health care professional. If the medication and the solution used to mix it were refrigerated, bring both to room temperature before combining. After adding the solution to the powder, gently swirl the mixture to completely dissolve the powder. Do not shake. Before using this product, check it visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Use right away according to the product instructions. The dosage is based on your medical condition, weight, blood test results, and response to treatment. Follow your doctor's instructions closely.

Side Effects

Flushing of the face, headache, nausea, and fast heartbeat may sometimes occur and can be lessened by giving this medication more slowly. Burning/redness/irritation at the injection site, fever, and chills may also occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, seek immediate medical attention if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing, chest discomfort/tightness. This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Drug Interactions

Your doctor or pharmacist may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for them. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with your doctor or pharmacist first. Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use.
