Ok so my doc says im gonna be on accutane for 6 months, and that hes gonna start me on 40 mg for a couple months and then drop me to 20 mg. This seems pretty backwards to how most people are on here, should I question him on this? Hes a GP and hes givin a few people accutane, but hes no specialist like a derm, what do you guys think?

Doesn't sound right to me either. Usually you start off with a lower dosage to ease yourself into it, then go up in dosage after a month or two. A second opinion probably wouldn't hurt if you want a higher dosage, maybe see a derm.
