  • Does anyone know for how long you can or should use Soolantra? I've used it for 3.5 months with "okay" results so far. The doctor who gave it too me didn't say anything about it other than "try this new thing it might work for you". I've asked two pharmacists and they didn't really know because Soolantra is so new according to them. The only thing they said was that some people use it for 3-4 months and a few have used it for up to a year. They also said that if I use it for too long I will probably not get better results but insted experience side effects.

      If you go through the King of Soolantra threads (actually this is THE King of Soolantra threads) as well as numerous other posts on this subject (just type Soolantra in the search box and browse the results for half an hour), usually it takes about 3 to 4 months to know if Soolantra works for you. Most reports say it takes longer for total clearance. Many report after clearance they use Soolantra as a maintenance routine once or twice a week. There hasn't been that many reports of complaints on side effects with Soolantra using it long term. Some have been using Soolantra longer than a year or more. The mites do come back so that is why continued use of Soolantra. More info on mites.

          Soolantra is chiefly used for Phenotype 4, but if you go through this thread there are many like you who report it also works well to improve Phenotype 2.

              Covering both bases are you? Using the ZZ cream and Soolantra together. May the ZZ/Soolantra force be with you.

                  • Generic Soolantra?

                    I have been using the Teva generic form of Soolantra 1% for about a year now. I went for my refill and the pharmacy said that its manufacturer (Teva) says that is currently unavailable. Has anybody else had this problem? Do you know what the story is?

                      I have been trying to follow this, but haven't been keeping up, so it is a good reminder to find out. I did post this on October 20 [last post]:

                      "On January 29, 2020, the Federal Circuit reversed and remanded an August 21, 2019 decision (Galderma v. Teva, 390 F.Supp.3d 582 (2019)) handed down by the United States District Court for the District of Delaware in the patent infringement dispute between Galderma Laboratories and generic manufacturer, Teva Pharmaceuticals, relating to Teva's Abbreviated New Drug Application ("ANDA") seeking approval to market a generic version of Galderma's Soolantra? (1% ivermectin cream for topical use) for treating inflammatory lesions of rosacea."

                      Obviously Galderma doesn't like what Teva is doing. The last I read is that Soolantra sales for 2018 was $120 Million US dollars. I haven't found how much Galderma made in 2019.

                      Also, what was the price of your 1% ivermectin Teva brand and how many grams (45 grams?) ???

                        Oh, wow. Well, that explains why it's not being manufactured as a generic anymore. As for the Teva 45 gram tube, I have drug coverage in my medical plan and I was paying $5 per tube. The price for Soolantra WITH DRUG COVERAGE is $125 per tube.
