I'm older than you but I am in the same kind of situation you're in. I only had what I guess would be mild acne. I had lots and lots of tiny inflammed bumps on my forehead but very little on the rest of my face unless I was PMS'ing. My skin was very oily though in my T-zone all the time. I am on month 3 of the accutane, I take an alternating dose. I think they prescribe the dose by your weight. It's worked very well for me. I never had a break out period, just noticed that within the 1st week my oiliness was almost gone and my bumps were going away. Since then I have only had one new pimple on my chin in 3 mos, and my forehead is clear. I have really dry lips and sometimes dry skin on my chin and around my mouth, which I treat with Aquaphor. I have some aches and pains, but nothing unbearable. It's definitely worth trying. For 2 years I have tried every topical cream, antibiotic and infomercial product out there with no results. I wish my derm would've prescribed this from the beginning and saved me all the wasted $!
Good luck- hope it works out for you.
