ZYCLARA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Condylomata Acuminata “This drug is a miracle. I had genital warts, and all the distress that goes with them. They were spreading all over my vulva, down to my anus. Doctor prescribed Zyclara, told me to apply to general area every night. Reading some of the reviews on here freaked me out but I did it anyway. Nothing happened for 3 days. Was despairing, bracing myself for months, years. 4th day it started getting sore. New red spots, blisters, stinging when urinating. Applied it anyway. Next day, more soreness, though nothing so dreadful as some people report. Still no change Decided to give soreness chance to heal, didn’t apply the next 2 nights. When I went to apply it the next night I discovered that the warts had drastically shrunk. I applied it that night, took the next night off. A week and a half after starting, the warts are all gone except for a couple of tiny little bumps. I am SO thrilled and surprised at how fast it worked.”

For Keratosis “Two days after I started using Zyclara I had diarrhea for 2 days, lack of appetite for 5 days, flu like symptoms and nausea for 12 days. After 8 days my cleavage had bright red scrapes which most of them were oozing. After 14 days I stopped using Zyclara, and started again after 14 days, according to the instructions on the package insert. Again after 2 days of using Zyclara I had the same symptoms all over again, this time even worse.”

For Keratosis “I used Zyclara about a year ago with good results. Many lesions appeared on my head and face and the side effects were minimal. I followed the typical application, 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off, and 2 more weeks on. Everything on my head and face completely healed in about 2 weeks after my 2nd application.Recently, I started treatment on my face and head and noticed more lesions appeared. However, into my 2nd week, the side effects were awful. Severe flu like symptoms; lower back pain, nausea, sore throat, head and chest congestion, it sucked! I am not sure why the side effects hit me harder this time around as a year ago the side effects were very minimal. At any rate, I stopped using Zyclara and within 4 days I was back to normal again.”

For Keratosis “Four years ago, I used Zyclara for two weeks, took a two week break, and continued the second cycle for one week. During the first cycle, I experienced flu like symptoms and the open sores. I had to wear band aids on my face to hide the sores and it was very uncomfortable. However, within 3-4 months, I received numerous comments about my skin and how healthy it looked. I applied a second dose a year ago to isolated areas and did not have any of the severe issues from the first time. My dermatologist recommended stopping the treatment at the first sign of open sores or major irritation, but I never had to follow that advice. Although the first application results were extreme and unexpected, I am glad that I did it.”

For Keratosis “I am currently using Zyclara for a basal cell in my ear. I have had this before about 7 years ago and used Aldara at the time that completely cured it. I was prescribed this cream this time at my doc’s recommendation because it is a little milder than Aldara and the skin is thinner in the ear. I have been using this now for 3 weeks without any breaks and have 3 more weeks to go as per my derm. I haven’t had any flu like symptoms and side effects are just on the treated area, extreme swelling, raw skin, oozing, redness, slight burning and scabbing. I started with one spot that looked like a pimple and with the cream came many more. Once I’m done I am hoping obviously that my basal cell is gone and my ear looks like an ear again.”

For Keratosis “First let me start by saying that I have RA, and I used this cream for 11 days. Went through the whole red, blistering, scab and now smoother skin however, I did experience all the flu like symptoms and continue to feel horrible after almost 3 weeks off of this cream. My RA has flared, which has been controlled by medicine for 8 years, and I’m wondering if it is from the Zyclara. I really wish that I had not used this cream and I would warn anybody with RA to stay away from it.”
