Qbrexza (glycopyrronium; Dermira) has been made available for the treatment of primary axillary hyperhidrosis in adults and pediatric patients ≥9 years old.
Qbrexza is supplied as a single-use cloth pre-moistened with 2.4% glycopyrronium solution, an anticholinergic. In hyperhidrosis, glycopyrronium inhibits the action of acetylcholine on sweat glands, reducing sweating. It is intended for topical use in the underarm area only and should not be used more frequently than once every 24 hours.
“People living with primary axillary hyperhidrosis often report feelings of isolation, and struggle in silence for years before finally speaking to a healthcare professional,” said Lisa J. Pieretti, Executive Director for the International Hyperhidrosis Society and a patient advocate for more than 15 years.
“The availability of Qbrexza represents an FDA-approved, topical medicine for the millions of adults and children who may be looking for a new way to treat their excessive underarm sweating.”
Each carton of Qbrexza includes 30 pouches. A single cloth should be used to apply Qbrexza to both underarms.
