The Rising Costs of Nail Fungus Prescriptions

There are a number of advertised products for toenail fungus that are available with a prescription, but some are not as effective as their claims suggest. Furthermore, these costly drugs are often rejected by insurance, and when they are covered, the copay may be unaffordable. As a result, you may walk away without your medication, and your problem will persist. According to goodrx.com at the time of publication, here are some of the associated costs of some well-known commercial products:


• Jublia 4ml (efinaconazole 10%) - $600

• Umecta 7oz (urea 40%) - $240-300

• Kerydin 4ml (tavaborole 5%) - $600


In our state-of-the-art compounding lab, we are able to prepare combination topical therapies with positive clinical outcomes and often lower costs. Below are some formulations that can be made in our compounding lab with a prescription from your doctor:


• Ketoconazole 2%/Urea 40%/DMSO Nail Suspension

• Itraconazole 1%/Ibuprofen 2%/DMSO Nail Solution

• Fluconazole 1%/Urea 20% Nail Lacquer

• Ciclopirox 8%/Fluconazole 1%/Terbinafine HCI 1% Topical Gel
