Breakdown of the cost of Accutane (American with health insurance)



Thought this might be helpful to others in some way.

Monthly cost of Accutane, for me:

$20.00 Dermatologist co-pay

$20.00 for a 30-day supply of Amnesteem/generic Accutane, 40 mg capsules

$20.00 for 28-day supply of prescription birth control pill (Aviane/generic Alesse)

$25.00 (roughly) for blood and urine tests

So that's about $85 each month, plus the cost of gas, plus the cost of having to take a few hours off of work (missed wages).

I'm lucky that I have health insurance through my dad's employer, otherwise I'd be paying thousands of dollars (I've heard from people without insurance). Or rather, I wouldn't be paying at all since I wouldn't be able to afford it.
