i weigh about 60kg, and my doctor wants to put me onto 20mg of accutane a day for about 6 months or a little longer. the reason i cant go up to a higer dosage is because i am very sensitive to meds, and a higher dose gives me bad side effects. i was wondering how dry my lips might be if im only on 20mg a day> i dont want to have too much trouble with them.
I was on accutane for 4 months about 14 years ago. I don't remember the dose tho. The dry lip syndrome began about halfway through the course of treatment and the last month was killer! Major dry lips! I kept a tube of vaseline with me everywhere I went. It is a small price to pay for the long term affects. Hope this helps.
other parts are dry.. for about a week in the first month the top of my hands (the fleshy part above the thumb) was very dry and cracked.. like a desert..my arms are dry, and so are my legs.. so yea, all of my skin is drying out... but only my face peels, its not like im shedding my leg skin
