In canada its 140$ per 30 pills of 40mg...

If you're planning to go on Accutane, money should be the LEAST of your problems..

Why are you so hostile? And, that's in one place. I'm not on it either, but Ive looked into how much it can cost and at Walgreens pharmacy, it was 400$ for a month's supply.. and a little over $200 for the generic. With some people's insurance, it will cover all of it, or almost nothing- So the prices vary greatly per person per situation.

Now, you- Stop overreacting.

The thing is man.. It's 140$ In Canada... In US it's like 200-300$ per 30 pills of 40 mg.. In Canada medicine is REALLY cheap...

And if your dose is 120 mg a day.. You hafta buy 3 packs of pills.. That's about 600-900$ a month... That's for just a month's supply... So make sure you got at least 4 grand down or a damn good insurance.

My parent's insurance pays all of my 'tane though ;)

Locally, a pack of generic Accutane runs about $280 according to my receipt, but i only pay a small copay. But that's only one pack. If you have a dosage that requires more than one pack, you have to buy each pack separately. I have no idea how much brand name Accutane goes for, but it must be significantly more.
