Doryx price vs. Accutane price?

I was wondering if anybody could tell me the price of Doryx for a 1 month supply at 100mg and 200mg? I know Accutane is like $500 a month for the generic.
My dermatologist gave me some samples of Doryx. It's helped, but I still have little bumps. It worked best when he told me to run it @ 200mg ed for 2 weeks. If I can get the Doryx for under $100 a month I would like to do that and wait to change my insurance next year.
You see with the insurance I got now they pay the first $1000, I pay $1000, then they pay 90% of everything after that. Well I already used their $1000, so it my turn now.
I go back to my doc on May 1 and I doubt he knows the price of the drugs for some reason. Thanks for any help you guys can give me.

Re: Doryx price vs. Accutane price?

Which one do you mean?
How much does Doryx cost with insurance or without insurance.
Doryx is very good but very expensive with no insurance.
Doxycycline is the same thing, except they say Doryx is better on the stomach when you first you it.
But once you get used to the Doxycycline, their's no difference between it and the Doryx.
I remember I went to CVS and they told me 30 capsules of Doryx without insurance, cost like 250 dollars.
Then the pharmacist told me 30 capsules of 100MG Doxycyline with no insurance cost 25 dollars.
So I just bought the Doxycycline.
Doxycycline is the best for getting rid of acne on the face and body.

Re: Doryx price vs. Accutane price?

I thought Doryx was doxyclyline? I knew I shoulda changed my insurance at the beginning of the year. I'd like to just go with the Accutane, but I'm not sure about my insurance. Anybody here use AETNA? I wouldn't mind paying the $500 for 2 months if they start paying for it when my part is meet.
I'm just worried I'll start it and they won't pay for it when my $1000 is paid. If no one here has Aetna, what do most insurance companies do? Do they pay for it?

Thanks

Re: Doryx price vs. Accutane price?

On the Doryx sample bottle it says doxycycline hyclate below the Doryx name. You sure these aren't the same?

Exclamation Re: Doryx price vs. Accutane price?

It was costing me about $98 or so a month for my accutane with insurance. I can't say which I had though, because that was awhile ago.

Re: Doryx price vs. Accutane price?

Doryx is the name brand antibiotic, where as Doxycycline is the generic.
Here is what I have found with both...Doryx works best, but still runs $50 even with a good insurance plan. Sometimes doc's have coupons for it.
Doxycycline was a total waste of time for me. I have gone the generic route for Doryx and for Cleocin-T (clindomyicin is generic) and both have failed miserably. My derm told me when it comes to hard to control acne, the generic are just not the same as the brand name and I totally believe it.
Good luck if you are going to try accutane, but I have seen with my struggles through the years derms are not quick to prescribe it because there is ALOT of paperwork involved and you have to be approved. If you are the age of a childbearing woman, this is even harder to be approved.
Best of luck!
