Maintenance Dose Accutane

Quick background, currently on my 3rd course of Accutane on my 4th month. Acne still hasn't cleared but usually it starts working the 4-5th month (it did on my previous 2 courses.)

Anyways my derm usually does the 5-6 month treatment but I'm going to convince him to prescribe me for longer so I can do a maintenance dosage for however long, maybe years, until I feel confident I don't need the Accutane any more. My biggest fear of not doing this is my acne will just come back like it the first two times and than I have to take another course and endure my scarring and emotional pain from acne.

My derm isn't too knowledage with maintenance dosages so what should I do? Rather, what should my dose be and how many times do I take it a week? I weigh 150, male, age 20.
