How long do I really have to be on accutane?

I'm not really clear on how many mg's i have to be on over a certain amount of time. But does it matter if I am on a lower dose over a longer amount of time, or a higher dose for shorter?

I am a 21 year old male (180 lbs) with mild acne. First month I was on 20 mg, second month I am now on 40 mg. The derm says I will be moving up till I reach 80 (probably 60,g next month) and stay on it for 6 months. I jsut want to know if it would be the same thing if I goto 80 mg for the next 4 months and get the same effects and less chance of remission.

I really dont want to be on this thing until July so if i could go higher now and be off by June then I would do it. Please let me know wut u think.
