What is the best price and availability of Naftin gel generic?



Question:
What is the best price and availability of Naftin gel generic?

Answer:
 

NAFTIN (naftifine hydrochloride) is an expensive antifungal medication, available in both cream and gel formulations used as directed by your healthcare provider to treat certain kinds of fungal or yeast infections of the skin, such as athlete's foot between the toes. 

 

 

Brand-name Naftin gel sold in the United States is manufactured by Sebela Pharmaceuticals, a former division of Merz Pharmaceuticals. At this time, the gel does not have a generic version available and, unfortunately, one will not be available until 2033 at the earliest.

 

 

Naftin gel does not appear to be available through verified pharmacies listing prices in our program. Feel free to sign up for price alerts for Naftin and other prescription medications by clicking here and following the prompts. Additionally, many pharmaceutical companies offer people assistance with the cost of medications through patient assistance programs. You can find information about the patient assistance program available for Naftin by clicking here.

 

 

You may also be able to offset the cost at your local pharmacy with discount price or a savings coupons offered through GoodRx.com or another discount search site.

 

 

As mentioned, Naftin is available in both a gel and cream formulation. Even with the assistance noted above, you may still have concerns about being able to afford your prescription for Naftin gel. If that's the case, we recommend that you talk to your healthcare provider. There may be a specific reason your provider chose to prescribe you the gel over the cream. That being said, it is worth having the conversation when price is a factor.

 

 

Naftin cream is available in both the brand and generic version, Naftifine, at your local U.S. pharmacy and at PharmacyChecker.com's verified online pharmacies. With a discount card, generic Naftifine cream 1% can be found in your local U.S. pharmacy for around $110 for a 60g tube. Using PharmacyChecker, you can order for as low as $82.95 for 60g, 78% off the current retail price. Up-to-date prices for generic 1% Naftifine cream can be found on PharmacyChecker by clicking here.

 

 

The bottom line is medications can be very expensive, and if you are finding it difficult to afford a medication you were prescribed, talk to your healthcare provider—an alternative may be available domestically, and, if not, there are often international pharmacy options.
