I've been taking Solodyn for a month now, and I'm just starting to see results. The tiny bumps on my cheeks have disappeared, and any pimples that I do get are gone within two days. The side effects do suck though. I've been dizzy and have vomited a few times, and I've been having crazy mood swings. I took three pregnancy tests before I realized that I wasn't pregnant--it was t ... Show Full Comment

After one month of following the acne treatment plan my dermatologist put me on, which included Solodyn 90mg my pimples stop reoccuring and the existing ones had started drying up. Once I was on my second month of treatment I as well as others had noticed a drastic change in my skin. I was no longer breaking out.

I recommend this medication to anyone who is fed up with acne and spe ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking Solodyn (90mg) for roughly seven weeks. I am FINALLY starting to see changes in my face. I have perioral dermatitis and it definitely got worse around week 3-5. I wanted to take a different med but my derm told me to stick it out the entire 12 weeks. I'm so happy that I did. My face is almost entirely clear (huge relief). It's itchy - but that is due to healing. I& ... Show Full Comment
