Is the dosage high enough

My son is 16 years old, 195 pounds, and has been on 80 mg/day Accutane for three months. He is definitely better than when we started, but I'm not sure he improved a lot since our visit to the derm after two months. At the three month visit, the derm asked if we thought he was doing better, because if not, we should increase the dose. I feel like it is a call the derm should make, but we are left trying to decide. I don't want him to go to higher dose if it isn't necessary, but I don't want to waste a whole month if we should be at a higher dose. He doesn't have any large cysts, but some bumpiness and some white heads. Any thoughts?
