Its sounds like there's a chance she will. I'm on it and my acne wasn't severe either, but there was a lot of it and it was very persistent. Just tell your dermatologist your reasons and how it makes you feel, also tell your mom how it makes you feel. She will end up knowing the possible side effects anyway because your dermatologist will tell you about them and they will give her some booklets about it that she has to sign a contract type thing saying she's okay with you being on Accutane and knows the side effects. But honestly most people don't get any side effects, I never had any, the people I know who have taken it don't have any side effects, and the side effects that people get usually are very mild and not life changing/threatening. Your dermatologist will probably have you go on one or two more antibiotics first though. Also while you are waiting maybe give Hibiclens a try, its a wash that kills bacteria for 12hrs, so you have to wash your face with it every 12hrs, and it says not to use it on your face, but it was prescribed to me by my dermatologist! Just don't get it in your eyes and mouth! But it works pretty well. You can buy it at and drugstore, target, walmart, etc. for around $6. And if your scared to use it on your face just use it on your body! Good luck!
