Any good ways to ensure getting prescribed accutane?

It seems really hard to get, at least in my area. I've asked a couple dermatologists and they would not prescribe it to me, but I know I need it. Nothing else works, and I'm at my wits end here!

I've tried clindamycin, benzaclin, minocycline, tretinoin .025% and .1%, metrogel, and doxycycline, all for at least a month, some up to 6 months. Some helped for a short while, some only made my skin worse! I have pimples over most areas of my face, they are mostly papules and pustules though, i only have a couple nodules/cysts at any given time... but the papules/pustules are ALL over.

Also, I have a boat load of redmarks and I'm starting to get indented scars...so, i'm determined to get accutane. What are some ways I can make sure i am prescribed it?

By the way, I'm a girl, so i know that may make it even more difficult for me to get accutane.

Anyway, I'm looking for some ways to help my chances of getting accutane, I'm getting desperate here.
