Common Questions and Answers about Aldara generic

aldara

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 n tn If they are continuing to return even after having them treated - have you talked to your doctor about topical treatments like aldara? Search pubmed.gov for the study on mc and cimetidine. It was only effective 1/3 of the time but heck at this point why not since you can buy it otc and rather cheaply as a generic. Definitely worth talking to your doctor about. I hear ya on the lack of sex issues!! How do you think I got carpal tunnel?
Avatar n tn Hello, I have a wart in the discreet area between my anus and scrotum. This wart has been present for 4 years. I believe it is a generic wart. It never has "Outbreaks" and has been present the entire time. Due to the area that its located in always brings up the STD/HPV possibiltiy. It looks just like : http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/images/ency/fullsize/19709.
Avatar n tn I went to a local STD clinic and tested negative for chlamydia, gonorrhea,syphilis, herpes was not tested.They doctor said it was molluscum contagiosum and iI've been treating it with a generic form of aldara. About 5 days ago I noticed a rash in my testicle area. Two days after that the rash became worse and I went to the ER. The physician on site said it was contagious dermatitis and ran another syphilis test for the bumps on my penis shaft.
Avatar m tn Thank you for the reply, Grace. You're always very helpful. The last time I went in to get them burned off she prescribed me imiquimod (I think that's the generic version of Aldara). And I'd say I used it for probably 4-6 weeks. What I found was that it helped to prevent my new, small warts from growing any larger, but didn't actually make them go away. I stopped using it because it began to cause painful sores/lesions in other areas of my penis.
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 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.
9777394 tn?1468994722 I think the most frustrating thing is the symptoms can be so generic that they don't lead to an actual diagnosis, especially when the tests are all over the place. I hope they find your correct diagnosis. How long have you been suffering with your symptoms?
Avatar f tn Zovirax was one of the first antivirals used for the treatment of genital warts, and proved effective. Now that it is generic, it has been superseded by other, more profitable, and allegedly "more effective" treatment creams, such as concentrated green tea catechins (for which a patent has been obtained by a big pharma company which charges a fortune for the cream), interferon alpha, aldara, etc.
Avatar n tn these two have no sides, i have no idea if alinia is available in romania, it is registered mainly for stomach infections of babies or immune suppressed, we have used generic nizonide500 by lupin here in the forum and it made a decline of hbsag close to 50% the first few months when hbvdna und by antivirals but it relapsed in all of us.

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 m tn yes that s vit d and 55ng/ml is normal/optimum range 2years is very very unlikly, once you reach hbsag less than 100iu/ml (the lower the better) you may stop intf and continue to clear normal intf, not peg, costs less and vietnam has both versions generic and very cheap, also imiquimod may be able to keep intf but we have to wait my tests results
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.
Avatar f tn unfortunately many have hbv reactivation after interferon too but it requires some years and has no resistance another try is to start nitazoxanide, generic nizonide500 or nitarid and after 6 months stop entecavir and keep only nitazoxanide.this drug is free of sides, cheap, and leads to hbsag seroconversion in the highest percenatege compared to other drugs.it has no reistance hbsag quantity is made by abbott architet with diluition for hbsag higher than 250iu/ml.
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.
