In brief: See details

There is very little you can do to avoid side-effects.
This is a medication that must be closely monitored by a doctor. Tell your doctor if you are taking supplements or other meds as some can interact with accutane. Also, do not start any of these while taking Accutane unless you discuss them first with the doctor who is prescribing the accutane.
