I can only get about 60 drops per 4ml. Mfg says that there are 200 drops per 4ml.
Anyone else having problems with prescription running out too soon?

Hello, Larry! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having.

I've noticed this myself, with various medications in liquid form and what it usually comes down to is your drops being bigger than what they consider to be standard. Squeezing a dropper or bottle harder or longer than they do, can cause you to be using more than you should. You may want to ask your doctor or pharmacist to show you how you should be using it and how much you should be using each time.

Jublia is listed by the FDA as being an antifungal medication, it is used topically, so most side effects relate to that and include redness, burning, itching and irritation.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thanks for the reply. The illustration in the instructions show that you should hold the bottle over the toe and squeeze out the drop. There is no way to control the size of the drop. Also the bottle is very stiff and hard to squeeze. I am 74 and still have strong hands; I can see that some other older people would have problems using "finesse" to only get one drop.
One other problem is that the applicator starts out shaped like a small brush but soon becomes shaped like a cotton ball.
When I first started to use Jublia, I could only get about 60 drops per bottle (I needed 6 drops per day). When I used the second bottle, I squeezed the bottle until I could see that the applicator was saturated and then touched it to the toe so as to only apply a small amount.
I was able to get about 5 extra days using this method.

Wow! That seems very odd. I have to wonder what some of these companies were thinking, when they designed these applicators.

Have you informed your doctor?
