Cost of Accutane?

21 posts in this topic

umm.. i'm sorry if this question gets asked a lot, but how much would it cost in the US? I'm most likely [and finally] seeing a derm and i know i might not get prescribed right away (most likely wont) and i would like to know the cost of Accutane in case it has to come to that? I live in the US if i haven't mentioned...

thanks in advance........

if you have good insurance than you will barely pay anything, but i know for most health care is a issue, so if you don't have any, the price would range from 60-120 for a 30day supply @20mg dosage on brand roaccutane

My insurance company sucks and that is part of the reason I stopped taking Accutane. I have a $500 deductible, which was easily met but even so, I have to pay full price at the counter and wait four to six weeks for a reimbursement check. While certain generic brands are cheaper than others, Accutane costs anywhere from $200 to $500 a month. eusa_wall.gif

Are you guys sure Accutane costs $200-600? Honestly I find that ridiculous to pay almost close to a $1000. As far as I know Accutane costs over $100 w/o insurance. Or maybe that's for the 20mg generic version. YIKES! Thank god I only have to pay half. I think my insurance covers 50% of the price.

Uhm.....so like do most insurances cover generic versions of Accutane? I hear that some insurances does not cover Accutane but the generic versions. I hope my insurances covers the generic versions or I'm screwed and will have to pay over $100 for it!

whatever the case with insurance maybe, overseas pharmacies are selling generic versions of the 20mg for under 2 a pill, so it should be affordable by most or all

also I would not recommend buying from overseas suppliers with a drug this serious, especially if you are thinking of doing so without being under the supervision of a dermatologist or doctor. they have to do the blood test to see if your triglyceride level is alarmingly high because of tane.

if you take tane without having your bloodwork monitored you're taking unnecessary risks
