QBREXZA® (GLYCOPYRRONIUM) CLOTH MAY help reduce sweat after just 4 weeks
Clinical trial results have shown QBREXZA to be effective in reducing excessive underarm sweating, also known as primary axillary hyperhidrosis.
What are clinical trials?
And how do they work?
Clinical trials are voluntary research studies conducted in people and designed to answer specific questions about the safety or effectiveness of drugs, vaccines, other therapies, or new ways of using existing treatments.
QBREXZA was studied in clinical trials and was shown to be effective in treating excessive underarm sweating in 2 primary measures.
697 patients (9 years and older)
in 2 clinical trials
that lasted 4 weeks
Here's what was learned:
1. QBREXZA meant less severe sweat
To measure sweat severity, patients were asked: During the past 24 hours, how would you rate your underarm sweating at its worst? Worst possible sweating (10) to no sweating at all (0).
how would you rate your underarm sweating now as compared to before starting the study treatment?
1 (much better), 2 (moderately better), 3 (a little better), 4 (no difference), 5 (a little worse), 6 (moderately worse), 7 (much worse)
of people reported less severe sweat in as little as 4 weeks VS 28% of people using an alcohol-based towelette.
2. QBREXZA also reduced sweat production
This was tested by measuring the amount of sweat produced by the body by placing a gauze pad underneath the underarm area and weighing the amount of moisture that appeared on the gauze pad.
People using QBREXZA during the trials produced 74% less sweat vs 54% using an alcohol-based towelette.
In a separate measure:
Excessive underarm sweating improved at 4 weeks
of people using QBREXZA said the sweating was much or moderately better vs 39% of patients who used an alcohol-based towelette.
It is also worth noting:
24% of patients using QBREXZA reported having dry mouth as a side effect vs 6% using an alcohol-based towelette.
This is not the only possible side effect of QBREXZA. Tell your healthcare professional about any side effects you experience.
Whether they experienced less sweat production or a noticeable improvement in sweat severity, for many people, QBREXZA started working after a few weeks of use (sooner for some). Your results may vary.
Ask your doctor if QBREXZA is right for you.
