I'm a 48 yr old female suffering w/adult acne for years. I've been taking Solodyn for 4 yrs. & have seen much improvement in my acne condition.

I started taking this medication about 3 years ago after breaking out horribly from taking prednizone for poison ivy in conjunction with Duac and Metrogel. The drug has started to show signs that it is no longer effective in my treatment, as I have been breaking out consistently.

I have only taken Solodyn for 5 days and immediately noticed improvements in my skin. However, on day 4 I woke up experiencing some discomfort in my neck and shoulders. At first, I thought it was from how I had slept the night before but on day 5 the pain had moved to my back and then my legs.
