Accutane Price?

41 posts in this topic

Hey all:

I'm currently on minocycline and I have some bad side effects (confusion, agitation to the point where I'm useless, nervousness), worst of all, it seems to be counter productive. I'm curious about the cost of accutane w/out insurance? and can someone compare the side effects between mino and the tane?

Probably about $1200 out of pocket

a month????

no way dude. You can get it online from reputable pharmacys for 20mg 60 for 219.00. Best to get it from a canadian online pharmacy.

Over $2,000 for sure. You have to add in all the doc visits and blood tests.

I would get insurance for 6 months and finish my treatment and then let the insurace expire. If I was you.

I get 60 40mg pills with insurance for $30/month. Without insurance it would cost $800/month! Ouch! I don't know how anyone could go on it w/o insurance. It's just way too expensive just for the meds (in the US anyway). Add in the blood work and doctor visits, and it's insanely expensive.

I spent about that much and I have insurance.

60-80mg pills are $500 online.

I would advise you to get a GOOD insurance and do your treatment, then let the insurance expire.

Mine was $253 with insurance -- 45 40mg pills. So expensive! It's the brand name, though and not the generic. I might switch to that... is there any difference in how they work, or are they pretty much the same?

I live in Canada and it just cost me $135 for a one month supply. I do not have insurance.

To me, this is quite a lot.

However, its a small price to pay for a cure for acne. That, and night blindness.

bnd.

My initial course was to cost me $3500 U.S. This was to include all doctor visits/blood work along with the 80mg/day brand name Accutane. No insurance...very depressing.

My initial course ACTUALLY cost me around $750 U.S. (lets just say that I found "other" ways around it)

My receipt from Walgreens says that without insurance my single pack of 20mg generic (Claravis) would be about $280. If you are prescribed a dosage that needs more than one pack you have to pay for each pack separately. With insurance i pay $10 per pack. I'd pay $30 for name brand, i have no idea what name brand costs out of pocket though. Claravis works just fine though, i don't know why anyone would want to pay even more for the brand.

I have a United Healthcare plan, not sure which one, and generic Accutane costs me $10 a pack, brand name would be $30, and doctor's visits to approved doctors are $15, no requirement for referral if i want to see a specialist. Your United Healthcare plan may have very different coverage, especially if there is no prescription rider. You must contact them directly or read your coverage booklet to find out what your plan covers.

I also have United Heathcare and my perscription of 80mg a day would cost $830.00 a month w/o insurance. With insurance- $45.00.
