I am a 16 year old female and weigh 130 lbs and I am very healthy and athletic with no health problems or anything like that. I have had cystic acne for a while now and several topical and oral antibiotics prescribed by my derm did not do much to help. My derm suggested I go on Accutane and I have read all the horror stories and potentially fatal side effects and I am a little worried. Is Accutane safe and worth the risk for my condition?
