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.

It's a fortune w/o insurance. Mine's in the $850 range I think w/o insurance.

If you live in the US, expect to pay a lot. Heck, it may be cheaper to take a little vacation to another country. I hear if you have a prescription for a drug, you can buy it anywhere, so if for some reason the airport found the drugs, it would be OK because you have a prescription for them....not that I think the dogs sniff for accutane.

It really depends what company you buy from. You can get 100 pills for 111$ dollars at 20mg at PlanetDrugsDirect, but get 30 pills for 119$ dollars also at 20mg from Global Drugs direct. It just depends.

The cost of Accutane without insurance is enough to give one a heart attack. I paid $535/mo. for the actual drug in generic form. On top of that (if you're a woman) you have to pay the doctor to see you each month, a pregnancy test each month, potential lab tests, and the requisite visits the months prior as well as after taking the drug.

Recently I saw a Canadian website that provided generic Accutane for $70/mo with a prescription. I'm not sure if a US doctor will write a prescription for Accutane without subsequent enrollment in the online monthly prevention program and monthly personal evaluation. In the US, the Pharmacy has to be in on the program on their end, making rural users SOL. The site claims that purchasing from Canada in 3 month installments is permissible.

Despite the cost, since I have taken the drug multiple times and it is the only effective treatment I have found in 20 years with acne, it is worth it for me and the results generally last a prolonged period of time.

I'm taking ZENMED Derma Cleanse Capsules instead of Accutane, it's a heck of lot cheaper and it's all natural. Seems to be working good on me, It's been 3 weeks and so far so good.

I checked out the prices at Planet Drugs Direct and they have:

10MG - 90 Capsules - $169

20MG - 90 Capsules - $249


Its one a day right? So 90 capsules is a 3 month supply?


I have a question about the dosage though, because I don't know if 10MG would be strong enough for me or if I should go with the 20MG.

I'm currently on Differin Gel (0.1%) and the antibiotic Doxycycline and its cleared up my moderate to severe acne before, but I stopped using it and it came back so I'm back on it again and its working but not like before, specifically on my chest, shoulders and back.


What do you guys think? Is 10MG strong enough or is 20MG the way to go? Does the 20MG have worse side effects than the 10MG?


Shed some light on me.

Everyone is just talking about the actual price of the pills what about the labs that have to be done every month and the monthly derm visits they add way up. My labs don't cost me anything because of insurance but without insurance my labs alone would cost me $400 and when I picked up my monthly supply of accutane at walgreens my receipt read your insurance company saved you $530 my co pay is only $3 for meds. I have great insurance!

DO NOT BUY ACCUTANE ONLINE AND WITHOUT BEING MONITORED BY A DERMOTOLOGIST!

It is extremely dangerous and many people have been burnt by doing this - including me. Go through the right process, see you GP ask for a Derm referral and go from there.

My insurance saved me $650.00 a month and I paid a $10 co-pay. So you figure I was on the treatment for 6 months and it cost $660.00 a month, $660.00*6=$3,960.00 for a 6 month course.

Do not buy Accutane online without a prescription. Do not discuss buying it without a prescription on this forum. Read the board rules.
