Coincidentally, I made out with someone today for the first time on tane. Been on it almost two months, very dry lips. Just put some lip balm on beforehand and you're golden. Yeah, it's still a little dry, but she didn't seem to notice.

Get a good lip balm with vaseline... Put lots on and don't touch them.

Dry lips can be a hassle and can lead to a lot of cracking. But if you make sure they are nice and moisturized then you should be fine.

Good Luck!

yea thanks, i was actually thinking about lowering my dosage from 80 to 40 to help out with the side effects. i had mild acne to begin with, and my face almost completely cleared in the first month on 80. now, im starting my second month. will lowering the dosage to 40 make lips less chapped, or not really noticably?
