Starting Your Repatha® Treatment

Welcome to Repatha®! Let’s Get Started.

We’re so glad you and your doctor chose Repatha® to help lower your high bad cholesterol (LDL-C) and reduce your risk of another heart attack or stroke. Here are some ways you can get started.

  • STEP 1: See Your Financial Options & Fill Your Prescription

    Now that your doctor has prescribed Repatha®, the first step is to fill your prescription at your preferred pharmacy. If you’re not commercially insured, learn about financial options here.

    If you are commercially insured, the Repatha® Co-Pay Card may help you pay as little as $5 per month.* To receive the Co-Pay Card, follow the 3 simple steps below:

    Sign up for the Co-Pay Card by enrolling in the Amgen® SupportPlus program below.
    Print, screenshot, or save the Co-Pay Card information shown on the confirmation page or in the confirmation email.
    Share the Co-Pay Card information with your pharmacy when picking up your prescription and pay as little as $5 a month* for Repatha®.
    *Eligibility criteria and program maximums apply. See full Terms and Conditions.

    You may be able to get a 3-month supply to make pharmacy visits less frequent. Ask your pharmacist or insurance provider to see if they offer this option.

  • STEP 2: Prepare to Take Repatha®

    With the convenience of self-administration, you can take Repatha® in the comfort of your own home or on the go. The choice is yours! See important information below.


    Things to do before your first injection:

    For detailed information prior to injecting, please visit our injection support page for Instructions for Use.

    Plan your injection dates—the first one and the ones after.
    Make room in the refrigerator (36°F to 46°F) to store Repatha®. Storing Repatha® in its original carton protects the medicine from light. Before injecting Repatha®, you’ll need to take the device out of the refrigerator and let it sit to warm up to room temperature. (30 minutes for Sureclick® Autoinjector and Prefilled Syringe, and 45 minutes for Pushtronex® System).
    Be ready to dispose of the used device in a sharps disposal container.
    Repatha® will remain good for use for up to 30 days if kept at room temperature (68°F to 77°F).

    We also have a step-by-step instructional video to guide you through your injection from start to finish.

    If you prefer to talk to a person over the phone or via video call, an Amgen® Nurse Partner* can offer supplemental support and provide information about resources to help patients access their prescribed medication. If you haven’t already signed up for Amgen® SupportPlus, you can enroll here.

    *Amgen Nurse Partners are only available to patients that are prescribed certain Amgen products. They are not part of your patient’s treatment team and do not provide medical advice, nursing, or case management services. Amgen Nurse Partners will not inject patients with Amgen medications. Patients should always consult their healthcare provider regarding medical decisions or treatment concerns.

    Taken with a statin, Repatha® can help dramatically lower bad cholesterol.
