    “Hi David,

    just finished reading this email. I am from Western Australia and developed really bad facial rosacea middle of last year and was put on Soolantra with great results after using a few other creams. I paid nothing like what you pay in the states it cost me $52 Australian dollars and was given many sample tubes by GP before I bought it.

    I wonder if people in the states can order it online from Australia.

    Kind Regards

    I’ve been using Soolantra since the year it became available in the US. Almost immediately I noticed the little rosacea bumps on the bridge of my nose disappearing and the inflammation in my face overall significantly decreased. With PPO insurance the out-of-pocket cost to me was $25-$30 but retail price showed the 45 gram tube cost over $600 for a 1-month supply. My CVS pharmacy started to give me the generic by TEVA and although it works the same as the brand name Soolantra, the cream base feels watery. I prefer Soolantra but won’t push the issue with CVS since it works just as well. I’m grateful for this treatment since I’m allergic to most other medications used to treat rosacea.

    More people would use product if not nickeled & dimed by insurance. Last year cost me $70….this year they want to charge nearly $700!!!! Uh, NO!

    My dermatologist first prescribed Soolantra but it was going to cost me over $700.00 when I called and asked if there was anything else she could prescribe that was cheaper she called in a generic prescription to a compounding pharmacy that shipped it directly to my door. The generic version only cost me $45.00.

      Thank you for this tip. I have never tried Soolantra because my insurance didn’t cover it and it would have cost $600 per tube! Even the discount pharmacy cards were actually higher. My prescription was in 2020 so this year I will look into having it compounded or to see if it is now formulary on my prescription rx.

    I was able to get a coupon directly from Galderma knocking it down to $175 as my insurance would not cover it. I use it sparingly and a tube has lasted me about a year. It works pretty well however I think that Coconut/tea tree oil is a bit more effective.
