I would hate to get on Accutane and then have to get off it because of high liver enzymes or something...and then be stuck with the initial breakout caused by the accutane

I don't have any stats on it, sorry =( I can tell you that I don't think a lot of people get pulled off Accutane due to high liver enzymes early in their course, though. My blood tests came back fine for 3 months, then after my 4th month my triglycerides had gone up (I wasn't pulled off Accutane though). By that time my initial breakout had cleared.

As long as you have no history of high liver enzymes, and you're careful to eat well and not drink excessively (I chose not to drink at all just to be on the safe side), I think you'll be fine.
