I am 34 and have been battling acne since puberty. It has actually gotten worse since I have had a baby. I went to a Derm. and he gave me some cream which is helping a bit. My back, however, is a disaster. Huge painful zits are all over it, from top to bottom. My derm. said I was a good candidate for Accutane but I was BFing. I have now weaned my son, and want to try it. My prob. is that I do not have RX coverage with my ins. I have looked at the price of Acctane and it's outrageous. Does anyone know if there is a generic form or similar alternatives? We are on a strick budget because I am not working (stay at home mom). Do I have to suffer forever with this?? Summer is coming and I don't want to wear tanks or anything like that.

Re: Accutane

their is a post by arock, patient assitance program I believe that list the phone numbers and contact information for a program bu roche where you get your accutane for free if your insurance will not cover it or at a very discounted rate. Generic accutane is still very expensive out of pocket so I would check that out.
