Absorica (isotretinoin) is prescribed to treat severe acne, usually after other acne medications have failed to provide relief. Acne is a common disorder related to the production of oil and movement of dead skin cells in the pores of the face. Absorica works by binding to certain receptors in skin cells, reducing inflammation and the rate at which skin cells reproduce themselves.
There is a generic available for Absorica. Ask your doctor if these generic medications are right for your specific condition. Without insurance coverage, Absorica can be very expensive: nearly $1000 a month for a 30 day supply. Even with insurance, Absorica co-pays can average between $150 and $200 a month. Considering that acne can occur repeatedly, over a long period of time, those co-pays begin to add up.
Using this convenient online tool and an Absorica discount card, consumers can comparison shop between local pharmacies to find the best price in their area. Just print the card and take it to a local pharmacy.
