Is stopping accutane midway for reasons such as some symptoms being too great dangerous?

Maybe not dangerous but say if you were to be seeing good results but not a total acne cured recovery and you started to get paranoid about the side effects; if you stopped, would the acne turn back to normal like when taking antibiotics? Or does the course HAVE to finish?

And even after stopping accutane, does its effects still work cuz of the retinol being in the liver???

Its all to do with causing premature apoptosis in sebaceous glands, so if you stop it would those cells just regenerate into meaner sebaceous glands, or will they stay that size?

So many questions >.< But I'm not on accutane yet and will be....and I'm one of those 'freaked out by horror stories' kinda person...
