Sinecatechins ointment is a genital warts treatment that’s made from substances in green tea leaves. Warts are flat, fleshy-colored bumps around the vagina, anus or penis caused by HPV (human papillomavirus). While this medicine doesn’t cure genital warts, it can help clear up outbreaks. The brand version of this medicine is called Veregen.

About Sinecatechins (Generic Veregen)

How does it work?

Sinecatechins are natural substances found in green tea leaves. Scientists aren’t exactly sure how this medicine works, but studies show it helps completely clear warts in more than half of people who use it.

What does it treat?

This medicine is used to treat genital warts. Warts are flat, fleshy, skin-colored growths that can appear around the penis, vagina and anus after someone is infected with HPV (human papillomavirus). While it won’t cure the virus that causes warts, this medicine can make warts disappear and help you stay clear for several months after finishing a full course of treatment.

What forms does it come in?

Sinecatechins usually come in the form of a topical ointment that you apply directly on top of warts. It’s only for warts on the penis, vagina or anus – don’t use it in other places on your body or put it inside the vagina or rectum.

Sinecatechins vs. Veregen

Sinecatechins and Veregen are the same thing – Veregen is just a brand name for the medication. Right now, only the brand medicine is available, so it can be more expensive than other genital warts treatments.

How much will it cost?

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If a genital warts prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Veregen 15 % Topical Ointment (30 gram tube) start at $1,526.75.
