Long term chapped lips for life
Anyone else get this side effect from taking Accutane? My lips are constantly chapping and peeling. What's scary is that I only took Accutane 24 years ago for a month or two. Back then my whole face was peeling and cracking to the point of sometimes bleeding. It is a VERY scary drug, and I would never recommend it to anyone. I hope it didn't give me other long term consequences that I cannot see yet.

Re: Long term chapped lips for life
Yep, I have permanent dry lips. I took my first course about 13 years ago and they have been chapped ever since. I have tried tons of Chapstick and the only kind that works is the LipSmackers brand. It is the cheap stuff they make for kids. I promise that stuff actually works way better than any of the expensive stuff.
