Why am I starting "Accutane Journey"

23 year old Female
So my story starts when i turned 13 i started to get pimples alot of pimples. (Not cystic ones)  but it wasn't that bad.
throught out my teenage life i had pimples. I did go on few medicines which i dont remember the names of since i had no idea what i was taking back then.
my cystic acne started when i was 21 it started so bad that i got depressed what is happening with me. Anyway i went on anti biotics i was on VIBRAMYCIN 100mg twice a day for 10months and while i was taking that i was also taking ALDACTONE 100mg for 8months.
It did clear up my acne for as long as i was taking it and the moment i stopped taking it. It flared up even worsttt i had acne all over my face my chest my back. I freaked out. Both these medicines didnt work for me.
so now that i am 23 and still with bad cystic acne i went on ACCUTANE
All my cysts are on my cheeks, jawline and on my chin. My T-Zone is clearrr. No issue there.
