Breakouts aren't lasting very long

DoDo

I'm still getting breakouts, but instead of lasting weeks like they used to, they only stick around for two or three days.

    From the album:

    Two months left of accutane

    Cool, I'm glad your breakouts are fading much faster. In regard to cost, I'm just wondering, is Accutane covered if you have insurance? I have insurance through Kaiser and even though we have prescription coverage, there are certain drugs/ointments that are not covered. My mom was very sick this past year and this one tube of ointment she needed (it was 1 oz.) to help some of her wounds heal from surgery, was $120!! This TegaGel stuff was actually used for burn victims, but can be used for wound care as well. Anyway, I was just wondering what accutane would cost.........

    There is a real improvement on this side. It looks like the acne no longer has the tendency to invade your neck, and it stays away from your temples and from the mouth area.

    A lot remains to do for the cheeks, but you are heading in the right direction, and quickly!

    Well, I read that without any kind of insurance or deductible, Accutane costs 200.00 a month (so that's $200 for one dosage or 1000.00 for the entire treatment...not including the costs of the monthly doctor visits) If you're in college, I'd check with your school to see if they offer an insurance plan. Most of them do. If not, check with your job. I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield and it costs $10.00/month (one dosage) and $30.00 per visit to the doctor every month, which is required. Good Luck!
