Thank you all VERY much for your answers.
Here are the pictures of my acne(This is me, now that i think of it it's actually worse than I thought)-

I've had acne since I was around 14.
It used to be very bad only in my forehead and my cheeks were totally clear, however for some reason now it has changed: my forehead pretty much has no acne but my cheek has a lot. :s
Currently I'm using benzyl peroxide for my body (At night), differin for my face at night, clindamycin for my face in the morning and also have been on tetralysal for over 1 month. I've been on different medication for around almost 2 years.
So after taking this into consideration do you guys still think I shouldn't take accutane?
If your acne is a little better than the photo you attached, I would not take Accutane. Accutane is more geared towards cystic acne or severe acne. Have you tried acne.org regimine? Since you are still young and growing I would really hold off on the Accutane. You always have the choice to do it later in life as well. I've heard enough stories about stunted growth caused by Accutane, that I would not take it if I had hopes of growing more. Not to mention that your acne if it is like the photo above but a little better, I would say it's manageable. If your having success with antibiotics and topicals then I would stick to that. Not worth the risks unless you have severe acne and it's a last resort medication. Your still young so acne is most likely related your hormones and puberty. I'd wait it out a couple years.
