is vaniqua available in Australia? I asked my doctor about it approximately six months ago and he had not heard of it.

Bristol-Myers Squibb Australia Pty Ltd markets Vaniqa under the name Eflornithine Vaniqa Cream, (eflornithine hydrochloride 13.9%). Indicated for the delay of regrowth of unwanted facial hair, following depilation, in women.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (Australia’s version of the US FDA) recommended Eflornithine Vaniqa Cream be approved for registration in December 2001:

TGA: Eflornithine Vaniqa clearance

You can contact the manufacturer in your country for someone near you who can prescribe it:
