Roaccutane for pcos acne

Hi! I’ve PCOS & also IBS-C ! After dealing with acne for 7 years my dermatologist prescribed me Roaccutane yesterday! He said it’s gonna cure my acne !  But I’m very confused as I’ve heard acne might come back worse after stopping  ! I’ve mild to moderate cystic acne & mostly scaring! & I feel my constipition makes me breakout a lot !  I’ve tried several antibiotics including doxycycline, tetracycline & currently on roxythromycin ! They does work for awhile ! & I’ve tried differin ( topical retinoid) ! It stopped working after 2 years & right now I started using BiRetix-duo ! Should I go for Accutane? & I’ve never been on birth control ! ( 22 years old)

I recently started Accutane about month ago and I've seen a small improvement so far. I am going to be completing the course around the end of February so I will let you know the outcome. I would advise to read up about it and understand the side effects. For me, my lips have become very dry and sore which at times has become difficult to cope with, I'm hoping it will all be worth it in the long term.
