Accutane vs. generic Accutane?

Hi everyone,
Well, I'm 24 and I've tried everything- used retin-a for 3 months, various antibiotics, the whole spread, and while my acne's improved a little, i'm still far from clear. Sooo, i'm going to ask/demand accutane from my doc when i see them november 3rd. My question is: is there a difference between "accutane" and the generic version? With my health insurance, it's way cheaper for me to get generic prescriptions, but I just wanted to make sure it worked just as well. Any advice would be much appreciated

THE NAME and some DERMS prefer you take accutane made by Roche. It's has the same ingredient. So, it might look different on the size and shape of the capsule but it's the same thing.
