thats actually good value considering what it can help and permenantly cure you from acne. also keep in mind that their price was purposely raised 3 times to prevent people from taking it. its real manufacturing cost is something like $20 a months supply

Without insurance, my Amnesteem would cost me a bit over $300 a month. With insurance, I pay $15. Super great. Yay for insurance! :dance:

I'm pissed because I just opened my mail, and my blood tests for last month were $180!! They didn't cover it because they said I have a "preexisting condition." Well, I'm trying to appeal it because I've never been diagnosed with "cystic acne" before. I wonder if I can get all my lab work done in a ghetto cheaper place, geez. As long as they keep paying for accutane...

well, u have to be careful about doing that. it could seriously endanger your health. If thats your only option, then make sure you research about the product and take responsibility for any concequences that may ocoour. remember, dont overdose.

Yea thats one thing I was wondering...I do believe my insurance only covers the generic brands...so when I get accutane it will be generic but that shouldnt matter should it? Its just a different name but the same pill right?? :confused:

Norway:

300 USD for 100 capsules of 20mg (but you get 90% refunded from the government)

5 USD for blood tests.

25 USD for a decent moisturizer, which you'll need.

It's an expensive treatment, but the government refunds 90% automatically when your dermatologist fills out a form. You'll have to pay about 1500 USD for a complete treatment though, but it'll be refunded after a while.

We usually don't have separate medical insurances in Norway, because everyone has good coverage by default.

I'd much rather "waste" money and keep my health. Accutane is a serious drug and not something to mess around with. I personally am very attached to my liver (physically and emotionally).

A generic is supposed to work just as well as the real thing. There aremany people around here who take the generic and it works wonderfully for them. No need to worry.

mine is 70 bucks if i want name brand and 20 bucks for generic (with insurance obviously).

oh yeah and i recommend name brand since there was study that found that the generic accutane was less potent.

I'd much rather "waste" money and keep my health. Accutane is a serious drug and not something to mess around with. I personally am very attached to my liver (physically and emotionally).

You usually have symptoms if your liver or other internal organs are being damaged (pain). I think taking it without a doctor is pretty safe especially if youve already been on it the past and know how your body reacts.

That doesn't mean that a person will do this. People ignore serious things all the time because they're in denial or just don't want to deal.
