Getting Your Prescription

A doctor on the phone with her patient.

When your doctor decides AUSTEDO (deutetrabenazine) tablets is right for you, you’ll get your prescription in one of two ways.

  • Your doctor will write you a prescription. Your pharmacy (or sometimes a specialty pharmacy) will fill it for you. Navigating insurance, copays, and financial questions is up to you.
  • Your doctor will send your prescription and enrollment form to Shared Solutions® and we’ll help you work through the details.

Here’s what to expect when your doctor has prescribed AUSTEDO and enrolls you in Shared Solutions®:
