Your monthly Epsolay cost savings if eligible

The Epsolay patient assistance program can provide your medication for free. We simply charge $49 per month for each medication to cover the cost of our services. With NiceRx, you will only pay $49 to obtain your Epsolay, regardless of the retail price.

Am I eligible for the Epsolay patient assistance program?

To find out if you are eligible for Epsolay 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 Epsolay patient assistance program?

Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Epsolay 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 Epsolay.

NiceRx will review your application and determine whether you may be eligible for Epsolay 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 Epsolay 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 Epsolay.

Is NiceRx an Epsolay coupon provider?

NiceRx is a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Epsolay patient assistance program. We do not offer trial offers or free Epsolay samples. When obtaining your medication through NiceRx, you will only pay $49 a month per medication. This will likely save you more money than if you were to use Epsolay coupons, discount cards, or Epsolay copay cards.

Can NiceRx help me get Epsolay cheaper if I have insurance?

NiceRx may be able to help you if your insurance company will not pay for your Epsolay medication. We may also be able to help if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. Whether you have insurance or not, apply online using our enrollment application to find out more.

How much does Epsolay cost with insurance?

What is Epsolay?

Epsolay cream is a prescription medicine used for the treatment of inflammatory lesions of rosacea (papulopustular rosacea or PPR) in adult patients.

It is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Sol-Gel Technologies, Ltd and Galderma. FDA approval of Epsolay is based on data from clinical trials that evaluated the safety and efficacy of Epsolay compared to vehicles in people with inflammatory lesions of rosacea. The endpoints in trials were the number of subjects with treatment success and the absolute change from baseline in lesion counts at Week 12.

The benzoyl peroxide in Epsolay uses microencapsulation technology within silica-based microcapsules. The silica-based shell releases benzoyl peroxide safely over a period of time.

What doses of Epsolay are available?

Epsolay is available in cream form, in the following doses: 50mg in 1g.

Apply Epsolay to clean and dry skin on your face once daily. Spread a thin layer over each area of your face. Avoid contact with your eyes, lips, and mouth.

Please read the prescribing information and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Epsolay active ingredients

Epsolay contains benzoyl peroxide as the active ingredient.

Epsolay side effects

The most common adverse reactions of Epsolay in clinical trials include:

  • Pain, redness, itching, and swelling (edema) at the application site

  • Severe hypersensitivity reactions, allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis and angioedema
  • Skin irritation, contact dermatitis
  • Erythema, scaling, dryness, stinging, and burning
  • Photosensitivity

Your dermatologist will assess the benefits of using Epsolay against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Epsolay to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Epsolay drug interactions

Other drugs may interact with Epsolay, including prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell your health care provider about all of your medications including any supplements you are taking.

Epsolay contraindications

  • Are allergic to benzoyl peroxide products

Talk to your doctor before using Epsolay if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Epsolay
  • Have other skin problems

Epsolay generic

Epsolay is the trademark brand name for benzoyl peroxide manufactured by Sol-Gel Technologies, Ltd and Galderma. A generic version of benzoyl peroxide is not available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Epsolay savings through NiceRx.
