I am unable to locate the product in my area because of its being on back order and not available. I have used it for many years very successfully and am afraid to try a non FDA approved product. Any guidance re. What others are doing would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to other Vaniqua users for their guidance. I have a medical condition requiring this product.
I haven't found another product but would love to know if anyone else has, also. Meanwhile, I cut back to one application a day, and a smaller bit than I had been using. Trying to make it last longer - I have also been using it for many years. When I called the company they said it was a manufacturing problem being addressed as fast as possible. The woman I spoke with said to call them monthly for any updates, that they're trying to make this happen sooner. (800) 678-1605.
I have ordered it, successfully, from Universaldrugstore.com. They are out of Canada and the Vaniqa is produced in United Kingdom. It takes a little hassle to get an international money order and mail to them but I got it within a few weeks and it works great. Good luck ladies!
I purchased the generic Vaniqa to hold me over until July 2018. I call Allergan mid July to find out the date the medication would return to pharmacies. I was told it would now not be available until December 2018. This date is not firm however. I have purchase the generic at Tara Skin Care online in 15 gm tubes. This is all they offer. It seems to be as effective as the brand product.
To all vaniqa-users from another vaniqa-user:
1) I just rang them today, 21/8/18, and now they are saying it will be ready by the end of September;
2) some GOOD ADVICE: do you still have your old tube of vaniqa? If so, here is information about the way to extend the life of this very expensive (and currently unavailable) skin product --
POKE A HOLE IN THE TUBE WITH A PIN and squeeze more vaniqa out of it. Long after the cream will not come out of the top of the tube, it can be squeezed out through a pin hole.
AND when one pin hole stops working, make another one on the other side.
You will be surprised how well this works and how much it will extend the use of what was in the tube.
I've been trying to post this info for a while but couldn't locate this discussion. Hope this helps everyone.
I suffer from hirsutism due to thyroid issues and polycystic ovaries. I am so distraught over Vaniqa not being available and they are constantly pushing back the available date. They simply have no idea how many women desperately rely on this drug. I am now shaving twice a day as nothing else works!!! Nothing!!! One thing for sure, they’ve never run out of viagra, do they?
