Aldara cream generic

Common Questions and Answers about Aldara cream generic


Avatar n tn I've been to a dermatologist and I got my biopse done, and they told me I have flat warts (on my face), I don't have a big quantity but I can notice that every month a new one comes out. They told me to treat them with a medication called Aldara, but it is very expensive, so I bought a generic medication from India, which is called Imiquad manufactured by Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. I am using it 3x a week. I know the treatment is slow and that I am not going to have fast results at all.
Avatar m tn you do have to use it exactly as ordered as well as be very careful where you put it . on days you don't use aldara, you can use a barrier cream like desitin to help protect the skin and help it heal. about 30% of folks get relief from hpv from taking cimetidine. worth asking your provider about since you can now buy it otc. pain to take it 4x/day but sometimes it's worth it to help your body get it controlled faster.
Avatar m tn Aldara is $40 with my insurance, the generic is $10...I think without insurance it is over $200 but not sure. I did acid treatment once a week for 4 weeks and that was my $25 co pay each time. I don't know the costs of any of the other treatments and all insurance is different. So far HPV has cost me $200, but if I didn't have insurance it would have been a lot more. I don't know any natural treatment. I am not drinking, don't smoke, I eat very healthy and take vit's.
Avatar f tn Aciclovir cream (generic brand of zovirax) and tea tree oil both work as broad-spectrum antivirals in the treatment of warts. To remove a wart that had been on my neck since childhood, I used an alternating combination of tea tree oil and aciclovir cream. 1. Gentle abrasion with pumice stone to remove outer layer of wart (allowing penetration to the virus through the core). 2. Apply directly over whole of wart, tea tree oil (100%) one day and aciclovir cream (5%) the next. 3.
Avatar m tn Last December I got the warts removed by laser. I thought I saw two new ones pop up so I used the generic Aldara brand to get rid of them. Thankfully it looks like it did the job. I've inspected my penile area and can't see any signs of warts. It's been two months since I have applied the cream. Is it ok to start having sex again? I currently live in South Korea, so I had my relatives ship over two more prescriptions of Aldara. I was thinking about reapplying it just to be safe.
Avatar m tn Antiviral activity has been demonstrated against a variety of viruses, and clinical efficacy has been demonstrated against genital warts, herpes genitalis and molluscum contagiosum. Imiquimod is administered as a 5% cream (Aldara) and has been licensed for the treatment of anogenital warts in immunocompetent patients. Complete clearance of warts has been observed in up to half of treated patients with only local side effects reported.
Avatar n tn Anyway back to the aldara, if you have insurance its like $160 for the 4 month treatment, otherwise its $1200, when you burn off all the warts, THEN apply the aldara because the aldara did not clear my warts, but after 4 months of using it, it PREVENTED them for 8 months. So basically, Im thinking about just using aldara 3 times a week for life, to prevent. Untill then I'll use compund.
Avatar n tn a few ladies are saying this is a type of yeast infection and while many have ruled it out because they don't have the typical symptoms, they have tried anti-fungal steroid cream or anti-yeast cream and have had success getting their cuts, itchiness, or whatever to go away and stay away. all the other ladies are also saying their doctors don't have a clue. they are otherwise healthy women. one lady suggested swabbing the area with rubbing alcohol (it worked for her). ouch! no thanks!
Avatar n tn My last one showed me as having VIN2 which my oncologist/gyno wanted me to use ALDARA Cream for 3 months, I tried it but i couldnt function with all the side effects, So after much reading as much as i could find on HPV and VIN i started taking the supplement DIM, thought it was helping some but now I have the burning back again and am afraid I will have to go in and have another biopsy again. I hate this. How come so many of us never heard of this before.
Avatar m tn the doctor gave me two prescriptions today - one for generic valtrex (twice a day for a week), and an antibiotic called azithromycin that he said was used for some urinary infections and chlamydia (even though i tested negative for chlamydia two weeks ago). i took the antibiotic, but i'm holding off on taking the antiviral just yet since i'm not actually broken out.
