Side Effects
Since this is very strong, you can notice some drying effects at the beginning, but it mainly disappears after few months. I guess that the side effects are not as ''dangerous'' as they appear. It worths it, but it still depends on the results your seeking for.

Additional Thoughts
You must borrow a lipstick or any moisturizer all the time on you. You must avoid licking your lips like I did, since Accutane already dry them. To conclude, I would absolutely recommend Accutane to anyone, but i suggest you to take it at around 17, instead of 13 in my case. :S

Side Effects
NONE. I did alot of research before starting accutane. I've been using BioSkinCare cream (which works miracles) and Meladerm, which takes away acne scarring (and actually WORKS.) Aquaphor and Neutrogena honey rescue balm have kept my lips from getting dry.
