Accutane for non-cystic acne?

Recommended Posts

I am 21 and have had acne for seven years. I always get pimples and red bumps, usually around my mouth, never on cheek. I also have large pores, oily skin, and blackheads entirely over nose. I have been on MANY antiobiotics, creams, B5, etc. I am also on a good low glycemic diet based on "The Perricone Prescription". All with no luck.

One dermatologist says I shouldn't be on accutane because it is for cystic acne. Another said I could since it is time for a last resort. What do you know about taking accutane for non-cystic acne?
