Only if you are rich.

The pills alone, generics, costs between $250-$400 a month depending on dosage and locale. You have to pay for the monthly blood work which runs around $150 depending on the lab. You have to pay for monthly office visits to get your script, another $150 a month at my derm.

If you are considering Accutane you can probably save a lot if you can find an insurance program that will cover at least the generic with reasonable co-pays. I paid i think $35 a month for my meds, $15-25 a month for my office visits, and bloodwork was free for me.

And no, the pills aren't terribly big. They are a fairly small gelcap style, pretty easy to swallow. The shape varies by manufacturer.

It's ridiculously expensive, I hate the United States health care system.

400$ for the generic brand

about 100$ for Derm visit

180$ for monthly blood test

count about spending 700$ a month without insurance.. :(:(:(

That's what i did,I don't regret it at all, however..it's just RIDICULOUS!

Wow. It would be expensive.

I mean if I didnt have health insurance and live in canada it would be 1000$ for accutane (5 months on 60mg) + bloodwork costs+ derm costs.

But since I live where I do, total = 200$
