As of late 2018, the FDA-approved, topical anticholinergic wipe Qbrexza® was made available in the U.S. for use in the treatment of axillary hyperhidrosis.
Patients with a prescription for Qbrexza® should be able to get that prescription filled at local pharmacies including CVS and Walgreens stores or by mail order.
Qbrexza® is owned by Journey Medical Corporation. To help many axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis patients* access Qbrexza®, there is a Patient Savings Card that patients* can receive in either of the following two ways:
- From you, their healthcare provider
- By downloading a card online
Once a patient has received a savings card, they should present it to their participating pharmacist, along with their insurance card and a valid prescription for Qbrexza.

*Please note that the Qbrexza® Patient Savings Card "is valid ONLY for patients with commercial (private or non-governmental) insurance. Patients enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, TRICARE, the Department of Veterans Affairs healthcare program, or any other federal or state government-funded healthcare program (“Government Programs”) are not eligible." Eligible patients must be residents of the United States.
