Vaniqa Savings Guide
Vaniqa (eflornithine) is prescribed to treat and reduce unwanted facial hair in women. Facial hair in women is due to a complicated series of conditions, many having to do with the balance of certain hormones in the body. Vaniqa works by interrupting the natural chemical process that takes place in hair follicles where it is applied; it is not a permanent solution.
There is no generic equivalent version of Vaniqa available to patients right now. Uninsured consumers can pay as much as $100 or more for a 45g tube of Vaniqa. And because Vaniqa is not a permanent solution, many patients may have to purchase multiple prescriptions. Even with insurance, co-pays for long term prescriptions add up.
After printing a Vaniqa coupon to use at the pharmacy, the online tools available there will help you find the cheapest price for this prescription in your area. Pharmacies compete for business just like any other retail store.
