Abiraterone Acetate may cause serious side effects including hypertension, adrenal problems, severe liver problems, low blood potassium levels, fluid retention, and irregular heartbeats, among other symptoms.
We believe that high deductibles and copays shouldn’t prevent anyone from receiving the medications they need. That’s why at QuickRx, we offer a Copay Assistance Program. This is designed to help patients reduce their copays and out-of-pocket costs for their medication. Our program partners with various foundations and manufacturer assistance programs to help make a patient’s medication affordable.
Here are the ways to apply for the program:

Take Abiraterone Acetate exactly as prescribed by your doctor. For best results, take abiraterone acetate on an empty stomach one hour before you eat or two hours after you eat.
If you miss a dose of abiraterone acetate or prednisone, you should take your prescribed dose the following day. If you miss more than one dose, please tell your healthcare provider immediately.
