Side effects of accutane like dry lips and eyes, subside within 3 months of discontinuation of the drug or earlier depending on the dose taken. While on the drug one can use a good chemical free colourless lip balm and artificial tear drops (carboxymethyl cellulose) for hydrating lips and eyes respectively. If the symptoms still don’t resolve, visit your dermatologist.
