I know and can relate to your story. I have struggled with acne since I was 12 (I am now almost 23). Its such a struggle and it really attacks your confidence. I tried accutane when I was 18 and was on it for three months. The only side affects I got (which everyone gets) were extremely dry lips (aquafor will be your BEST FRIEND, you can purchase at grocery stores) dry skin and nose bleeds. I would ask your doctor about taking Vitamin E to help with the dryness. Drink LOTS of water. Honestly, accutane affects everyone differently. I stopped because I was anxious on it. I knew about all the side affects as well and was scared to try it. If your acne is severe enough and you have had it this might be the way to go. Don't let it scare you. You know your body. Watch yourself everyday and if you have any questions you can call your doctor. Your acne is affecting your happiness so its time to do something about it. I tried a drug called minocycline which many people take and love. I had a severe allergic reaction to it and my brain swelled. Any drug can be harmful just watch yourself.
Accutane did help my skin. My brother took it as well and it helped him. Go online and look up peoples before and after pictures and their "good" stories.
Also, I want to send you a link that totally changed my perception about my acne and beauty. I saw this video online and it made me cry. This gorgeous girl who is a vogue model struggles with cystic acne. Here in this video she does a makeup tutorial and her skin look incredible after. I wouldn't put on as much makeup as her but it was an incredible discovery for me. Check out her other video and know that you are not alone. Also, know you are beautiful despite your acne!
