Barely able to read the names of the ingredients used in that topical hyperhidrosis cream or anti-perspirant? We don’t blame you. Just look at the International Hyperhidrosis Society’s website’s description:
“Propantheline, scopolamine, and poldine methylsulfate were among the anticholinergics used experimentally for hyperhidrosis. Topical propantheline delivered by aerosol was effective in decreasing plantar sweating in institutionalized patients. Poldine methosulfate and glycopyrronium bromide were delivered via iontophoresis in two different studies, with some reduction in palmoplantar symptoms. In such prior studies, axillary hyperhidrosis did not respond as well, and systemic side effects were noted in many patients, particularly when higher doses were used.”
Methylsulfate? Glycopyrronium bromide? Jeeze. Been studying for the SAT lately?
Hyperhidrosis creams and anti-perspirants are a recurring monthly cost, and they add up quickly. Whether it’s co-pays, trips to the pharmacy, or just the cost of the cream itself, these temporary fixes end up being the more expensive options long-term.
Compare that to iontophoresis, which is a one-time upfront cost (and may be covered by your insurance provider). Need more flexibility? RA Fischer Co. now offers a financing program, with monthly plans starting at just $59!
