What is Qbrexza®?
QBREXZA® (a.k.a. glycopyrronium) is the first prescription cloth towelette approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat excessive underarm sweating (i.e. primary axillary hyperhidrosis).
The medicated towelettes are pre-soaked with a 2.4 percent glycopyrronium solution. When wiped on the armpit, the solution enters the treatment area and inhibits neurotransmitters on the sweat glands and reduces the amount of sweat produced.
What cosmetic concerns does Qbrexza® treat?
- Excessive Sweating: Topical glycopyrronium impededs sweat gland production to control dampness and odor.
Who is the ideal candidate for Qbrexza®?
The ideal candidate for Qbrexza® therapy is nine years of age or older and seeking to reduce sweating through a noninvasive daily topical application. Qbrexza® therapy is not advised for individuals with excessive sweating not controlled with topical therapy alone, certain medical conditions, or those with sensitive skin types.
What is the average recovery associated with Qbrexza®?
There is no recovery associated with Qbrexza® use. Individuals should test the product on a small area of the underarm to reduce the likelihood of sensitivity and skin irritation. Qbrexza® should only be applied to dry, intact skin.
What are the potential side effects of Qbrexza®?
Possible side effects of Qbrexza® use include blurred vision, urinary retention, dry mouth, pupil dilation, nasal dryness, constipation, skin irritation, redness, and sensitivity, and incomplete management of sweating.
What can someone expect from the results of Qbrexza®?
Qbrexza® use will create immediate results that can be maintained with regular daily application. The most effective way to utilize Qbrexza® is once daily application every 24 hours.
What is the average cost of Qbrexza®?The average cost of Qbrexza® is dependent on insurance. The actual cost of Qbrexza® will vary by location, healthcare provider, and individual candidate needs.
