Accutane: Accutane is a very powerful medication that needs to be given under the strict supervision of a doctor. Normally, you would need to see a dermatologist before getting accutane, and would get a penal of required bloodwork starting accutane. If you are female, you most likely will need to be on birth control pills and take monthly pregnancy tests.
