I have tried so many different things, proactiv, antibiotics, different types of tropicals, and none have worked. Is accutane the only way? and does accutane always work?

I tried everything and I mean EVERYTHING to get rid of my acne from when I was 17 until now (21). I had the chance of Accutane when I was 19 but declined becuse of the side effects and to be honest I have never let acne rule my life. I am now 21 and I am on the 4th month of Accutane (2 months of 40 m/g and 2 months of 80 m/g. I am 95% clear. My back was covered in red marks which alot have turned white and look 1000 times better! I wish I'd never let the side effects worry me as I've had none apart from dryness! I have my 3rd appointment on Tuesday and I hope he doesn't take me off Accutane just yet as I think I will be 100% clear with a couple of more months!
I'm 24 and I've had acne since I was 12. I get a little of everything (cysts, whiteheads, blackheads, the scars) and I hate it. I never tried accutane because the side effects scare me. For a while I was on the topical medication called benzyclin to kill the bacteria in my face during the day and then I would use the differin at night. When I first use the combo it cleared my face completely up 100%. But then like most acne medication it reaches a plateau and doesn't work like it used to. It did keep my face presentable for years. I decided to stop using it about 3 months ago because the benzyclin started causing me health problems. It's an antibiotic and unfortunately when you stop using an antibiotic your problem gets ten times worse. My acne exploded. So I decided to try Proactive. I used it for 2.5 months. No results. My acne got worse. That stuff is truly overrated!!!Anyway my cousin suffers from ance too and when i visited her a couple months ago her acne was all cleared up i mean 200%. She told me she ordered this stuff off hsn.com call Continously Clear. Has anyone heard of it??? It's a 3-step system as well, like Proactive. I ordered it last week. I've been using it for 3 days now and my skin has already started to clear up. What Proactiv couldn't do in 2 months this stuff has done in 3 days. There's no toner, just the wash, the repairing solution that's not lotion but something else, and also moturizing lotion. The repairing solution is a really strong medication. I will keep you posted....Let's just hang in there guys. Hopefully there will be a cure soon :)
