Hi i’m 18 and i was on accutane too. I’ve read so much about accutane. I never heard that accutane causing cancer or causing died or even make woman infertil. Depend my experience i got my acne back when I stopping drunk it (I was hangging on it) maybe cause my first time dosage wasn’t correct so i’ll try the correct dosage. Just follow your dermatology instruction. Goodluck
