Accutane help

Hi, this is my first post.

i'm 17 years old and have had acne for the past 4/5 years. Over this period it's gone from bad to worse to 'better'. I have mild acne and it just seems like it's not going. I've finally been referred to a dermatologist and was just wondering does this mean I'm definitely going to be prescribed accutane? My doctor who referred me out in the reference that I'm a good candidate for this prescription but I just wondering will the dermatologist make me carry on taking other treatments that don't infact work? Also, if you've been on accutane how long was it and did you find it helpful? Thanks  lot!
