pretty sure that's normal. It will dissipate with time. I was on it for six months. I think it helped me and I don't peel anymore per say, but I still experience the tightness/"plastic"/irregular feeling I guess you'd call it. Let me ask you this: When you feel the dry tight feeling, do you find that your teeth kind of get caught on them if you run them across. I know it sounds weird, but I just thought I'd see if someone else experiences this. Like, my bottom lip dries up and for a while, if my top teeth run over it for some reason, the lip gets caught in it. Anyway, hope you see some relief. Later.
