Tips/resources For Accutane Discounts?

1 post in this topic

I have to pick up my accutane (or some other sort of isotretinoin) in two days for Ipledge, and I found out it's going to cost $1500/mo at my pharmacy. I definitely can't afford that but I am also losing work because of my acne. I live in a pretty remote place so I don't have the option of going to a CostCo or something of the sort... my options are City Market and Wal-Mart.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could get this drug more cheaply? Online coupons, discount cards, etc? My insurance doesn't cover it and getting on a different plan isn't an option- I've already looked into it. And yes I'm 31 and have tried every other treatment available... and this will be round 3 of accutane. I'm a little hesitant to pay nearly $10k (when you add up 5 months of accutane plus doctor's visits plus lab work) for a drug that wasn't a "cure" the first two times around. But I'm not sure what other options I have.

Thanks for the help!
