I'm scared about taking Isotretinoin/Accutane. I need reassurance on this matter?

I read about all the possible side effects and it's really put me off them, I would like to know what the worse case scenario would be and if it was treatable. I think I read that it could cause you to wee blood or develop psychosis which is kind of putting me off. And if there's anything to actually worry about?
