I have been on Solodyn for 4 months now. At first, my acne did not appear to be healing. But I continued taking the medication. In the beginining I was on 90mg. After 3 months, my acne had improved dramtically. My Dr. then upped my dosage to 135mg. My acne is completely gone. I am also using a wash and morning/night creams with the Solodyn. My skin is beautiful again. There has been side effects. ... Show Full Comment
