Accutane for Mild/Moderate Acne?

I'm still considering taking accutane for my acne. I've gotten the acne under control using minocycline, retin-a and finevin (azelaic acid). But nevertheless, I'm tired of putting crap on my face and also I'm 22, so the chances that accutane will cure me are good.

anyone out there have thoughts on this? Should I be on a lower dose since my acne is not that bad (a cyst or 2 every couple of weeks, blackheads and small red things on my forehead)???

what should I expect?

thanks for your help
