Post severe enough for accutane???

is my acne severe anough for accutane? my derm said no, but maybe you guys had different derms that saw it defferently. let me know what u think.
this is the worst my acne has ever been. I'm currently (5 weeks) on tazorac, minocycline(2 months) and klaron, and ortho tri cycline..maybe it's getting even worse cause it's the"initial breakout..not sure though
forehear: pretty clear..a few red marks and some bumps
sides of face/cheeks: 3-4 big pimples and a few red marks on EACH
chin and around mouth: 10-12 small pimples that come to a head quickly..maybe cause of tazorac..AND 10-15 red marks..it's sooo bad, looks like a big red blob
anyway should i beg my derm for the accutane. cause i think this is pretty darn severe..and nothing else seems to help. people say tazorac should work in 2 or 3 months..but it's already been like 5 weeks and it's getting worse and worse so i'm really losing hope. it sucks. would accutane help and is it prescribed for my type of acne?
