I believe it entirely depends on the individual. I have tried almost everything available, with the next step being LED therapy or PDT with ALA.
I started on tetracyclines at 11, yes 11!!! I've dealt with acne now for 16 years. It's horrible and has caused social anxiety. I haven't been as happy with my appearance since I stopped Roaccutane.
I would not hesitate to put my own children on this medication if they suffered to the extent I do.
Eta-I can't sleep on my back at times because it's painful and covered in cystic acne, it's not just my face.
