Prescribed for adult mid-life acne and rosacea flare up. Acne got about 90% better, but my teeth turned grey, especially in cracks. Dr said to discontinue after 5 weeks because of teeth problems. Scars and age spots/freckling is more pronounced now. Also aches, pains, blurred vision felt while taking med. I don't think the benefit outweighed the risk on this med, possibly a better med fo ...

I've been on Solodyn for a month now. Previously I was on Doxycycline for over a year - it was working okay, but made me quite sick when I took it on an empty stomache. Solodyn has been great. I'm taking it once a day instead of twice, the lowest (45mg) dosage. It doesn't make me sick at all and the results have been excellent. Now, if only it weren't so expensive!
