I used Accutane when I was a kid and it was the best decision me and my Momo ever made. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Shit worked great... just made me impossible to be around for like 18 months.
I think the depression side effect is slightly BS. Like you said, you were already moody. I'm sure you just got more pissed off about the dry lips and face. Chemically though, I don't think it causes depression.
Good to know, I think all I remember was a news clip years ago mentioning the possibility, and paid no mind to it really. Once it paid off in results any chemical issue was more than offset as I remember my senior year.

I'm very thankful that I never had pimple or acne problems in my teen days. I remember a bunch of people from school-high that were pretty "good" looking, but when you look closer, bam-acne outbreak. Some people I still see and their in their early 20s, still being ravaged by acne.

I was so sad when my acne went away. Now I have nothing to pick at. If I was ever bored, I could go stand in front of a mirror and pop zits. It's fun, isn't it? Squeeze the little guys until stuff comes squirting out. If you get a really good one, it explodes, and sends shit all over the mirror! Or when you get one in your ear? It hurts a lot, and it's a pain in the ass to pop it, but when you do, it's like a little bomb just exploded in your head. Imagine that; actually hearing a pimple pop... boy, those were the days.
