When you start isotretinoin, you have to see the risk benefit ration. Some of the risks include premature closure of epiphysis which is why many doctors prefer to give it after 18 years of age. However, without knowing the history or the severity of the condition, we cannot give more advise beyond this. It would be best to talk to the doctor who has prescribed you Accutane and discuss about these factors with him and your friend has to take the decision along with her guardians whether to continue the medicine or not.
Next Steps
Isotretinoin is often given to very young children also with relative safety. But usually that is the case when other options have been explored.
