Is Accutane truly necessary? I was put on Tazorac and Aczone with Spironolactone. I broke out BAD the 1st month; swollen face.

Now It's been 2 months Ive been using Taz, Aczone, Spiro and Doxy. I'm not getting anymore breakouts at the lower bottom of my cheeks. It's improving, but I'm still breaking out from my upper cheeks: I still feel some bumps underneath. My derm told me to use Accutane. I figure Accutane is just a stronger drug that will break me out until I no longer have anything left to break out from. So I'm guessing it works the same way as these creams that I am using and are working. Then why take Accutane?
