4 Steps Towards Less Excessive Sweat
QBREXZA™ (glycopyrronium) cloth is a pre-moistened, medicated cloth towelette that comes in individually wrapped packets. Apply QBREXZA once a day to reduce excessive underarm sweating. But the real key to your success is using QBREXZA correctly, which means using it exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
Follow these steps when using QBREXZA:
Make sure underarms are clean and dry before applying QBREXZA.
Do not apply QBREXZA to broken skin.
Unfold the towelette and apply QBREXZA by wiping across your entire underarm once.
Using the same towelette, wipe across the other underarm once.
Throw the used towelette in the garbage.
Do not reuse. Make sure the waste bin is not accessible by pets or small children.
Wash your hands right away with soap and water after you’ve applied QBREXZA and have thrown away the cloth.
This last step is probably the most important, as medicine may still be on your hands after using the towelette. If the medicine comes in contact with other parts of the body, like the eyes, for example, it could cause unwanted side effects, like blurred vision.
