Soolantra is actually cheaper than Finacea .....

but only if you do a very convoluted analysis of the cost of the prescription, visiting your doctor, how long you might be disease free, and more.

A Galderma sponsored study can show that if you take into account all of these variables, you can make a case that Soolantra is cheaper than Finacea.

I'm not totally convinced, but it will likely give Galderma some good PR material.

Ivermectin 1% cream (Soolantra) once per day was associated with lower total costs and greater clinical benefit (disease-free days, patients cleared, QALYs) compared with azelaic acid 15% gel (Finacea) twice per day and therefore dominated this treatment.
