Qbrexza™ Affordability Assistance

As of October 1, 2018, the FDA-approved, topical anticholinergic wipe Qbrexza  should be widely available in the U.S. for use in the treatment of axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis.

Patients with a prescription for Qbrexza™ should be able to get that prescription filled at local pharmacies including CVS and Walgreens stores, at pharmacies contained within larger retail outlets (like Walmart), or by mail order.

The company that makes Qbrexza™ is Dermira, Inc. based in Menlo Park, California. To help many axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis patients* access Qbrexza™, Dermira has a savings and support program called DermiraConnect that includes a single, easy-to-use Qbrexza™ Savings Card that you* can receive three different ways:

  • From your healthcare provider
  • By downloading a card online 
  • By calling DermiraConnect at 1-877-DERMIRA (1-877-337-6472).

Once you have received your Qbrexza™ Savings Card, you can activate it by:

Depending on your healthcare coverage* (commercially insured, under-insured, or un-insured), the Qbrexza™ Savings Card:

  • Helps to lower copay amounts for insured patients: Commercially insured patients should pay as little as $35 per prescription fill (for a 1-month supply of Qbrexza™) at the pharmacy.
  • Helps make out-of-pocket costs more affordable for un/under-insured patients: Un/under-insured patients should pay no more than $70 per prescription fill (for a 1-month supply) at the pharmacy.
