In brief: Thousands

Accutane is the brand name for isotretinoin.
This brand is no longer available. Only the generics are now used. This is by far the most effective remedy for acne. It must never be given to any pregnant woman. Blood tests are needed and there are always side effects, so it is used for those suffering severe, disabling acne.
