if your derm felt like it's time to end your course, but you want 1 more month, how do you convince your derm to give you one more month?

a lot of derms seem to have big egos, at least mine does

I anticipate she'll probably end my course one month earlier than I would like, and I want a higher cumulative dose to reduce the likelihood of a relapse

my derm is too conservative, in my opinion

tell her exactly that.

Do the math, tell her what your cumulative dosage is. Tell her you want to hit close to 150mg/kg. If your blood tests are fine, I don't see why she would disagree. Don't go in hostile, but just show her you know what you're talking about. If you've hit 150mg/kg and are still breaking out, she should give you another month.
