Rhofade - Overview

Rhofade is a medication sometimes prescribed to people as a topical treatment for rosacea or chronic facial skin reddening (erythema). People who might need a Rhofade cream prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Rhofade ointment medication when appropriate to do so.

What Is Rhofade Used For?

Rhofade prescription medication is a cream that contains the active ingredient oxymetazoline hydrochloride. Rhofade belongs to a class of medications known as alpha-adrenergic agonists. Rhofade is thought to work by causing vasoconstriction of blood vessels after topical application. Rhofade cream may exert these effects by engaging the alpha receptors located on the vascular smooth muscle and activating contraction of the muscle - an effect that may be beneficial for reducing blood flow and inflammation in the areas of application. Because of this mechanism of action, Rhofade cream, like brimonidine (Mirvaso) is sometimes utilized in treating adults with persistent facial erythema associated with rosacea.

Rhofade - Dosage and Price

Rhofade medication is often utilized as a Rhofade 1% cream that contains 10 mg of oxymetazoline hydrochloride which is the equivalent to 8.8 mg (0.88%) of oxymetazoline free base. When first utilized, the Rhofade cream pump should generally be primed with the first three doses discarded (check the package insert for exact instructions). Typically, Rhofade cream is prescribed to be applied as a pea-sized amount once per day in a thin layer across the affected areas. However, the actual prescribing instructions for Rhofade ointment may be different, depending on the health needs of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Rhofade cream is generally expensive, typically costing over $500 per 30 gram tube of Rhofade 1% cream. Rhofade coupons can sometimes be found online to help reduce the cost of the medication. Depending on the insurance plan, one might find some of the cost of the Rhofade cream prescription covered as well. Rhofade prescription cream should not be applied in the mouth or eyes or used intravaginally.

Can I Buy Rhofade Online?

Rhofade requires a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. As a result, Rhofade OTC (over the counter) is not available and one cannot just buy Rhofade online without first consulting a licensed medical provider. People who might need a Rhofade cream prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Rhofade medication, including Rhofade cream and Rhofade ointment, when appropriate to do so.

Rhofade - Side Effects

Rhofade prescription medication can cause side effects when used. Side effects that may result from Rhofade cream use include redness, dermatitis and itching at the application site. Rhofade can worsen underlying rosacea. Rhofade can cause changes in blood pressure and should be used carefully in people with conditions affected by blood pressure changes, including cardiovascular disease, cerebral / coronary insufficiency, and certain types of autoimmune conditions. Rhofade can exacerbate underlying eye disorders and patients with glaucoma should not typically use Rhofade cream. Rhofade should not be used in conjunction with alcohol. People with a known allergy or hypersensitivity to Rhofade prescription medication or ingredients in the formulation should not use Rhofade ointment. Prior to using Rhofade cream, it is important to discuss concerns and possible side effects with a qualified medical provider.
