How Many Drops In A Bottle Of Jublia

Our pharmacist answers the latest question regarding how many drops are contained in a bottle of Jublia.

Question

Jublia comes in 4ml and 8ml bottles. The directions say to apply 2 drops to the big toe and 1 drop to smaller toes. How many drops are in a 4ml bottle? I can only estimate about 20 drops to a ml or 80 to a 4ml bottle. However there has to be a more precise calculation based on the medicine.

In terms of drops per bottle, the manufacturer (Valeant) does not state the amount of drops per bottle. This is probably due to the fact that the medication has a brush applicator and it is therefore tough to give a precise number of drops per one bottle. We can only infer based on the dosage. The usual dosage for the big toe nail is two drops daily. With this dosage, the bottle typically lasts about 6 weeks, or 42 days. This means that there is approximately 84 drops per 4 ml bottle, which is right around 20 drops per ml as you have stated.
