We're moving in tandem. I just started Soolantra today. I did a test area around my nose to see if I had any burning or itching side effects. Really, its very gentle- just like using regular lotion. So far so good. I'm ready to cover my whole face now.
When I went to the pharmacy, it took them a little while to figure out how my discount card worked. At first, they said I had to pay the $300+, but then head pharmacist put 'em in check and I walked away with a $25 tube. Even though I have health insurance, my health insurance doesn't cover it (probably because it might actually work). Even as a lotion, it's pretty damn good.
