The Fischer vs. Qbrexza

Qbrexza is a new solution on the market. Recently cleared by the FDA, Qbrexza is a disposable medicated wipe that treats underarm sweating only. The Fischer, however, is designed for palmar (hands), plantar (feet), and axillary (underarms) hyperhidrosis patients.

I. Reputation

Before we go any further, there’s something we must show you. Have you ever heard of Mydriasis? Also known as “blown pupil”, it’s exactly what it sounds like. One or both of your pupils swell up until you look like you’ve been at a Bob Marley concert too long. In fact, one patient we worked with was disciplined in school because they swore she was “on something.”

Mydraiasis is also one of the side-effects of handling Qbrexza wipes. Get any of the solution in your eye and you’ll be making a trip to Urgent Care. Qbrexza’s warnings will remind you to wash your hands thoroughly, but think about getting some under your fingernails, scratching an itch, then BAM!

Is this something you really want to chance? Add blurred vision, trouble urinating, and weak pulse to the list of side-effects (which are featured prominently on Qbrexza’s website, by the way), and these medicated wipes just don’t add up.

RA Fischer Co.’s Iontophoresis treatment is 100% all-natural, so no harmful chemicals to worry about!


II. Usability


Qbrexza wipes only treat primary axillary hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating) and not palmar and plantar (hands and feet).

Wipes are something you need to re-apply on a regular basis. Compare this to our iontophoresis treatment, which starts at 2-3x a week. Most patients work their way down to sessions once a week or even once a month.

From an eco-friendly perspective, forget about it. Iontophoresis uses the all-natural minerals found in tap water. Meanwhile, countless articles have been written about the environmental impact of flushable wipes.

Like iontophoresis, Qbrexza wipes also require a prescription. However, these wipes only come in a 30-day supply, meaning you’re making monthly trips to the pharmacy and dealing with drop-offs, pick-ups, lines, and pharmacists.

III. Cost

Iontophoresis is a one-time, long-term investment. Qbexza wipes are an on-going, temporary solution. And costs add up. Whether it’s co-pays or paying for a month out of pocket ($550 for a 30-day supply), wipes end up being the more expensive option, and quickly.
