Prescription Drugs

I have tried oxytetracyline and for the first three month my acne completely cleared. My acne at the time only covered my cheeks. However, the acne was very violent and painful to touch. I was so happy when I went back to my doctors, and he took me off the antibiotics thinking the acne had cleared. Almost immediately the acne returned. But this time it was on my forehead too. I rushed straight back to the doctors and they prescribed me it again. I was on the tablets for about 5 months and I saw no difference. I went back to my doctors and they suggested using doxycycline, I am a week into it and as far as I can tell there are no improvements. I have been doing a lot of research and lots of people have suggested using accutane or the pill. I am a bit scared to use those drugs as I don't have much information on them. Are there any sugeestions?
