I guess my question is what illness did you suffer from and could Accutane further make your illness worse in terms of health. I guess many people will give you different opinions regarding Accutane and depression. Thing is that it is documented and can cause depression, mental issues and suicide in some. So if you have a hx of depression then it could make it worse.

All in all you are in charge of your health and have to make the final decision. Maybe try light therapy, holistic etc...

Good Luck
