Accutane Questions

Since I have tried everything except birth control and accutane to try to clear my skin, I was wondering if I could ask some of you guys some questions on accutane.

1. I have mild to severe acne, I am a young teen with bipolar and depression. Most of this depression is caused by my acne. I am mentally stable without my meds so if taking accutane requires that, it's fine. Am I fit for accutane?

2. Is it true that it's hard to get a dermatologist to prescribe it to you?

3. Is it really as bad as everyone says it is? (I can deal with breakouts and dry skin as side effects)

4. What's a good skincare regimen (what products should I use) while on accutane?

thanks, XOXO
