About Condylox (podofilox)

Condylox is considered an antimitotic drug, which stops the growth of warts, eventually causing them to fall off. Podofilox is usually prescribed as an external topical solution.

Some conditions that Condylox is known to treat include genital warts and anal warts. Condylox is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation known as podofilox.

It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage that you are prescribed.

If you are prescribed Condylox, be sure to complete the full course of medication as prescribed unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, Condylox may not fully treat your anal or genital warts.
