  1. 1. Do you still get chapped lips?

    • Yes, my chapped lips didn't go away once I stopped taking Accutane.

i was going to ask the same thing! I have been off accutane for about a month and my lips are still soooo dry! I CANNOT go anywhere without chapstick. I apply it almost every hour :( it sucks. Today, I left my chapstick at home and my lips were dying. I skipped class to by some chapstick because it was that bad..grr

I've heard people say their lips return to normal like within a week after their done..hopefully this is not permanent. I might go see my doctor about it

Try not using it. Maybe the reason you have dry lips is because you apply other stuff on it. I remember my lips going try when I was using chapstick a lot.

I have tried not using chapstick, my lips are unbearable without it. If I even talk my lips will start stretching and cracking...

Give it some more time. Also, try using different chapstick brand, because, from what I have heard, some indeed might make your lips more dry.

Plain old petroleum jelly. :)

I had chapped lips BEFORE Accutane, no worse during the treatment and definitely no worse after the treatment.

I can't really vote on this yet, as only been off Accutane for about a week. I think my lips are gradually getting less dry and cracked, but not back to normal yet.
