WILMINGTON, Del. — AstraZeneca on Wednesday launched Nexium Direct, a program that provides eligible patients the option of having brand-name Nexium delivered directly to their home. Nexium Direct is part of AstraZeneca Direct, a web-based offering that delivers select brand name prescription medications from AstraZeneca. The medications are dispensed by a team of registered pharmacists and certified pharmacy technicians available through a collaboration with Eagle Pharmacy.
“Today, people are taking a more active, participatory role in their healthcare. With this in mind, AstraZeneca has created Nexium Direct, giving patients and prescribers a choice when it comes to how they receive branded Nexium from AstraZeneca,” stated Linda Palczuk, VP cornerstone and commercial excellence. “Nexium has been a treatment option for acid reflux disease for over 13 years, with more than 236 million prescriptions written. We’re proud to offer patients and prescribers another way to receive this important treatment.”
Patients wishing to enroll go to PurplePill.com and click on the Nexium Direct link to complete the online enrollment form and provide a valid prescription for Nexium. During and after enrollment, patients will have access to a 24-hour support center to contact via email or phone if they have questions, the opportunity to request auto refills, and free home delivery.
