Cumuative dosage question

I've read on these boards that, depending on your weight, you should take a certain cumulative dosage and that with the right amount, it increases your chances of not having the acne come back. Well my dermatologist never asked my weight or said anything about this, so I was wondering what I should be taking based on my weight.

I am 230 pounds. I'm in my 4th month. My first two months I was at 60mg, my third month I was bumped to 80mg, and now(my 4th month) I'm still at 80mg. I plan on staying at 80mg for my fifth and, what's supposed to be, my final month. Is this enough for my weight?

Based on the above information, your cumulative dosage is 104 mg/kg. The recommended is 120 mg/kg to 160 mg/kg.
