    Side effects of Accutane are most frequently dry skin/lips. There are others but they occur less frequently. You must get monthly bloodwork and routine pregnancy tests.
    There are many others, I assume from your username you're a girl. You absolutely can't get pregnant while taking Accutane.

    Type in "Accutane" in the search box but check this thread out too:

    If you couldn't take Accutane, I'd want laser treatments. I don't see why you couldn't take it though. The only problems I could predict are it's off label use for rosacea and the fact that you're a girl.
