Differin and Insurance

I am really frustrated. My new insurance company does not cover either Retin-A or Differin Gel. They are both too expensive for me to afford. I was thinking of ordering them online from another country. Has anyone else done that? I am so tired of always fighting this!!!! It is bad enough to have acne but now my insurance company is making it worse. Just when I thought I was finally going to be able to afford medicine that works!

Re: Differin and Insurance

I don't know. I have never used differin. I used to use Retin-a but the problem, besides the cost, was that the low doses did nothing for me and the high doses worked perfectly but turned my skin completely red. So, let me know how differin works for you. I am curious!

Re: Differin and Insurance

Can't you get a bunch of samples from your doctor? Mine gave me like a 4-month supply of samples so I could know if I like it or not.

If that doesn't work, I found a place online where you can get a big tube of differin for $30. I can't post the link so you have to search for it.
