Don't sweat it dude,

Listen to your derm, your acne isn't going to come back because your frame has been extended. It's either a high dose, with a short time frame OR a lower dose with a long time frame. The difference between the frames is so that if you are experiencing any complications (in bloodwork) the low dose will serve as a preventive for any serious complications or side effects. But essentially, by the end of your course, I think you will have ended up with the same dosage either way. One method is lighter on your system, that's the only difference in my opinion, but one isn't less effective than the other.
