A lot depends on the pharmacy. If you're in the States, Costco has really cheap Accutane. If and when you get a prescription, just call all of the pharmacies in the area and ask them how much it would cost. Don't forget about places like Target and Walmart wink.png It also depends on your weight, but you can expect to pay anywhere from $200 a month to $500 a month.

Accutane itself is expensive but the whole process is even more costly. Here is my cost if I didn't have insurance.

Monthly dermatologist visit - i don't know $100+

Monthly blood test - $156 (Labcorp)

Accutane 30mg - $475 (RiteAid)

Accutane 60mg - $950 (RiteAid)

Moisturizer - $10

Lip Moisturizer - $10

Eye Drops - $12

Gentle Facewash - $10

Yup. That's about what mine costs. We have high deductible family insurance and we have finally met it ($2400) thanks mostly to me :/

My accutane (Claravis) comes from Walmart and we pay $766 a month for 60mg a day. I take 2, 30mg tabs. My first month was half that expensive because my dose was half as much. I know I'm not paying for it myself (my parents are WONDERFUL) and I do feel guilty because it isn't like I am really SICK but It's been worth it. SO worth it. My parents are really happy for me, seeing how it's making me feel so much better about myself. Acne can really kill self esteem. I hope you can swing it, my friend.

Bastian, you should at least apply for medicaid so that you can get some health coverage. Accutane may not cure you anyways and a dermatologist may have you try other regimens first because accutane should be a last resort. The dermatologist will probably put you on antibiotics for at least 3 months and give you topicals treatments to use and if that doesn't work they will have you go on accutane. While waiting to go to the dermatologist couple things you can do now, drink a lot of water (till your urine is pretty much clear), take a multivitamin, make sure you are eating a balanced diet and change your pillowcase every night.
