Qbrexza® Affordability Assistance

As late 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 canadian 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.

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

Depending on your healthcare coverage* (commercially insured, under-insured, or un-insured), the Qbrexza® Copay 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. Some patients may pay less than $35, depending on their insurance. (With a maximum savings up to $200 per fill, $2500 maximum program limit until 12/31/19.)
  • 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.
