    Our dermatologist prescribed this for my son (15yrs). He has only been on it 3 days and has experienced side effects including headache, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. We have stopped taking it.

    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.

However, I do have bouts w/hives all over my body, sometimes very severe reactions, but I take zyrtec/benadryl & it seems to calm down - but I don't breakout w/hives on a regularly basis, it's periodic & although extremely unco ...
