Jublia… WOW! It really works!
- Posted on: Jun 11 2015
Have you ever looked down at your nails and wondered, “OMG! What is that yellow stuff growing under my nail?! What did I pick up from that last manicure or pedicure I had two months ago?!” Well, you probably have a fungal infection. In the past, treatment for nail infections required months of oral medications. Creams just didn’t work that well or at all. The problem with taking an oral medication is that some of the medications used to fight fungal infections can interfere with medications you are already taking. It also means getting blood tests to make certain the medication isn’t hurting your liver.
Now there is a topical solution that can clear most nail fungal infections quickly and without those unpleasant side effects or blood tests.
Jublia (efinaconazole 10% solution) is a newer topical for the treatment of toenail fungus. It is easy to use and has few side effects as compared to traditional oral treatment. Jublia has a brush applicator that makes it easy to apply on, around, and under the affected toenails for up to 48 weeks.
Cost is often an issue with new medications. The cash price for Jublia can be several hundred dollars. However, there are $0 copay cards available for commercially insured patients. There is also a specialty pharmacy out of Philadelphia, Philidor, that guarantees Jublia at a reasonable price, $35-$75 for most patients, including those patients that are Medicare or cash paying. Philidor will ship Jublia within a few business days directly to your doorstep.
Dr. Abell recently saw a patient in follow up for toenail fungus that she had been treating with Jublia, and after only 6 weeks of diligent treatment, the patient had 90% toenail clearance. Dr. Abell says, “We were skeptical, but Jublia really yields GREAT results in patients who have failed other topical treatments.”
If you’re looking for an easy and cost effective way to successfully treat stubborn toenail fungus, then consider Jublia, and schedule an appointment today! 724-935-9133
