Am I eligible for the Benzamycin patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Benzamycin assistance you can apply online using our enrollment application. Each pharmaceutical company sets its eligibility criteria, and we will review your application individually to determine if you may be eligible. The three main factors to consider are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Benzamycin patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Benzamycin patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies. We may be able to help you apply for other patient assistance programs too, so be sure to tell us about any medications you are taking as well as Benzamycin.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Benzamycin assistance. If so, we will handle the full enrollment process for you and prepare all required documents for your healthcare provider to sign. Once you are successfully enrolled in the Benzamycin patient assistance program, we will help you manage your prescription refills by requesting refills on your behalf throughout your enrollment period. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated information and seek to re-enroll you so you can continue to access affordable Benzamycin.

Benzamycin prices without insurance will vary depending on how much you buy. Prices will also vary by retailer. As a guide, Benzamycin topical gel (5%-3%) typically costs $75 for 46.6 grams.

What is Benzamycin?

Benzamycin is a topical gel treatment used on the skin to treat acne. It contains a combination of erythromycin and benzoyl peroxide, which together have an antibacterial effect that kills the bacteria that causes acne. Benzamycin gel will also have a drying effect on your skin, which allows excess oils and dirt to be easily washed away.

Benzamycin gel should be applied twice daily, morning and evening. The area needs to be washed and then pat dried with a clean towel. Make sure you use Benzamycin gel at the same time each day to prevent missing doses. Your acne will normally show an improvement after 2 weeks of treatment. It may however take 2 to 3 months of consistent treatment to see the full benefit. Speak to your doctor if symptoms do not improve or worsen.

Benzamycin active ingredients

Benzamycin contains both an antibiotic (erythromycin) and an antibacterial drug (benzoyl peroxide). Erythromycin kills and prevents bacteria from growing. It does this by blocking the production of protein by the bacteria. Benzoyl peroxide also helps to kill the bacteria and removes excess oil from your skin, and also helps to dry your skin by releasing oxygen to destroy the bacterial proteins.

Benzamycin should not be used on sunburned, dry, chapped, broken, or irritated skin. It could make these conditions worse. Also, avoid using Benzamycin on open wounds or areas of eczema. You should wait until these conditions have healed before using Benzamycin gel. It is important to avoid using other medications on the same areas you treat with Benzamycin unless your doctor has advised you that it is safe to do so. Also, avoid exposure to sunlight or tanning beds as Benzamycin can make your skin more sensitive and sunburn more easily. It is advisable to wear protective clothing and use sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) when you are outdoors.

Benzamycin side effects

The most common side effects caused by Benzamycin include:

  • Dryness where the topical gel is applied
  • Redness where the topical gel is applied
  • Stinging where the topical gel is applied

In rare instances, Benzamycin can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Severe redness of the treated area
  • Severe burning of the treated area
  • Severe dryness of the treated area
  • Severe diarrhea

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Benzamycin against your risk of side effects.

Benzamycin drug interactions

Benzamycin can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Topical treatment for skin cancer – bexarotene topical
  • Topical acne medication – adapalene topical, dapsone topical, tretinoin topical, trifarotene topical
  • Medication for acne – isotretinoin

This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Benzamycin.

  • Are allergic to the active ingredients erythromycin or benzoyl peroxide
