How Much Does Dendracin Lotion Cost?

Written by: Staff

Dendracin lotion (Dendracin Neurodendraxcin®) offers temporary relief from minor aches and pains, often caused by strains and backaches.

Dendracin lotion is a topical analgesic, meaning it only works by temporarily relieving minor pain.

How much does Dendracin lotion cost?

The cost of Dendracin, much like other prescriptions, will greatly depend on your health insurance provider and where you purchase it.  On average, without any insurance coverage, a 120ml bottle will cost about $325 to $355.  A Walgreens we had talked to in Texas quoted $3250= without insurance, while a Kroger pharmacy said the lotion would cost $355 without insurance.

The generic alternative, such as Bio-Therm, can be much cheaper, often retailing for as little as $75 to $125 without insurance.

This pharmacy comparison tool, for example, shows the prices for Bio-Therm ranging from as little as $80 at a local Walgreens to as much as $111 at a local independent pharmacy.  These prices, however, were only available to those who took advantage of the WebMDRx Savings Card.

As long as medically necessary, a prescription should be covered by your insurance, and you will only be responsible for your co-pays and deductibles.

Tips to know

Dendracin lotion works similar to other prescribed lotions.  Shaking the bottle before each use, you will need to apply a thin layer over the affected area.  Immediately after, you will need to wash your hands unless the affected area is on your hand.  Avoid using the lotion on any open wound or more than four times per day.  Also, avoid bandaging or wrapping the affected area until the lotion has fully absorbed.

Dendracin lotion has no common side effects; however, this doesn’t mean they don’t exist.  If you experience a severe allergic reaction, any swelling or a sign of an infection, seek medical treatment immediately.

Some medical conditions, as per, may react with the lotion.  Be sure to talk with your doctor if you are pregnant, taking any prescriptions, have an allergy and/or have had an allergic reaction to sulfonamides, para-aminobenzoic acid or other topical anesthetics.

Before using a full dose, doctors recommend applying a small amount to your skin to check for sensitivity.

How can I save money?

Dendracin is a brand name, and as with any prescriptions, the name brand will always be the most expensive option.  If your doctor prescribes Dendracin, see if you can get a generic prescription alternative.  The generic name is as follows:  methyl salicylate/benzocaine/menthol.

Even if you don’t have health insurance, look for a prescription savings card online to save.  These cards, which are almost always free, can be printed from your computer and simply shown at your local pharmacy.

It doesn’t hurt to call a few pharmacies in your area to see what they charge.  Most will be more than happy to quote you over the phone.
