Imiquimod Cream - Overview
Imiquimod, sold under the brand names Aldara and Zyclara, is a medication used for topical treatment of various skin conditions, including genital warts. People who are interested in an imiquimod prescription can connect with a medical provider using Push Health and can get an Aldara or Zyclara prescription when appropriate and indicated.
Imiquimod - Mechanism of Action
Imiquimod (Aldara, Zyclara) belongs to a class of medications known as topical immune response modifiers. Clinically, Aldara cream is primarily used in treating certain cases of actinic keratoses and external genital warts and perianal warts. Imiquimod's mechanism of action and how it affects skin lesions is not well understood. It is theorized that imiquimod activates both the adaptive and innate immune systems and may also have an effect on specific growth factor receptors. Pharmacokinetic studies suggests that imiquimod is retained in the skin for a period of time.
Imiquimod 5% - Price and Dosage
As a cream, imiquimod is generally available as a whitish vanishing cream base (oil-in-water). As Aldara, imiquimod is not meant for oral, ophthalmic or intravaginal use and is prescribed for application 2-5 times per week over a period of multiple weeks, depending on the condition and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Each single use packet of Aldara contains imiquimod 5% cream (250 mg) which is the equivalent of imiquimod 12.5 mg. Imiquimod is somewhat inexpensive, costing approximately $2 for twelve packets of generic imiquimod 5% cream. Imiquimod coupons are sometimes available online. Some insurance plans may also cover some costs associated with an imiquimod cream prescription. As Aldara cream, imiquimod should typically be stored between 4° C and 25° C
