In brief: Many alternatives

There are several oral and topical medications for acne as well as laser and light based treatments.
If the treatments you are currently on are not working, you should see a dermatologist for a consultation and new a treatment regimen.

In brief: Isotretinoin is best

Isotretinoin is the gold standard for bad acne.
There are also some laser and light treatments that may work without taking internal medication.
