What is Tymlos?

Tymlos is a medication that helps reduce the rate of bone degradation in women with postmenopausal Osteoporosis. It contains abaloparatide, which is a synthetic version of a hormone naturally found in your body that helps build and maintain strong bones by increasing the development of new bone cells. Taking Tymlos can help to strengthen bones and reduce the risk of fractures, making it a great option for those looking to prevent the effects of Osteoporosis.

How do you know if your Medicare Part D plan covers Tymlos?

You should check your Medicare Part D prescription drug plan's formulary for a list of drugs that are covered under your specific plan. For additional questions, you can contact your plan provider to find out if Tymlos is covered under your plan. Your provider may also provide information about potential out-of-pocket costs associated with the medication. Additionally, some plans may require prior authorization before they will cover the cost of Tymlos.

What should you do if your plan does not cover Tymlos?

If your plan does not cover Tymlos, you may still be able to get it. You can contact the manufacturer of Tymlos directly and see if they offer any assistance programs that could help reduce the cost of the medication. Additionally, your doctor might be able to help direct you to local assistance programs.

How much does Tymlos cost, and will you have to pay out-of-pocket for it?

The cost of Tymlos varies depending on your plan provider. If you are covered by Medicare Part D, you may have to pay a copayment or coinsurance for the medication. Generally, Tymlos is found in Tier 5, which is the highest in most Part D plans. Additionally, if your plan does not cover Tymlos, you may have to pay out-of-pocket for it. Tymlos could cost thousands of dollars out-of-pocket.

Are there any side effects associated with taking Tymlos?

Tymlos has been known to cause a variety of side effects, including nausea, diarrhea, dizziness and headaches. Additionally, some people have experienced bone or muscle pain with Tymlos use. If you experience any side effects while taking Tymlos, contact your doctor immediately. Your doctor will be able to help you determine whether or not you should continue taking the medication.

How long will you have to take Tymlos for the best results?

The length of time that you need to take Tymlos depends on your individual circumstances. However, it is generally recommended that you take the medication for at least 18 months to get the most benefit from the treatment. Your doctor will be able to provide more specifics about how long you should take Tymlos based on your individual situation.

If you are interested in trying Tymlos, what is the process for getting started?

If you are interested in trying Tymlos, the first step is to talk to your doctor. They can help determine if it's a good option for you and can provide instructions on how to get started with the medication. Depending on your insurance coverage, there may also be additional steps necessary for getting approved for coverage. If you don't have insurance coverage, you can contact the manufacturer of Tymlos directly to see if they offer any assistance programs that could help reduce the cost of the medication.


Overall, if you are eligible for Medicare Part D and have been diagnosed with Osteoporosis related to menopause, Tymlos could be a good option for you. Make sure to check with your plan provider to find out if your plan covers it and what it costs you. And always talk with your doctor before starting or stopping any medication.
