Dry skin on tane

Recommended Posts

Hey, I've been on tane for about 2 months now... 60mg on a 5 month course... And at first my skin was peeling and drying out like crazy... My lips are still insanely dry, and my eyes and my nose get dry sometimes... I drink lots of water though to prevent the dizziness and headaches, but now my face isn't dried out like before. Is this normal? For the drying to stop?

I'm on month 5 and can say the same. Accutane is a weird drug. I've been asked a few times to go off of it for a week to get treated for pleuritis, and then a little while later to get treated for a upper respiratory infection and middle ear infection. I found I always got dryest the 3-4 days following stopping the accutane. I'm interested to see what happens when I'm off for good.
