I've been taking Solodyn for three weeks. Yesterday my entire body started itching. Today the itching is even more intense, the joints in my fingers are sore and stiff and I feel very "out of it". My skin has cleared up considerably, but I'm also using Atralin cream and Duac gel so I'm not sure which of these has had the positive effect on my skin. I'm definitely done wit ...

I HAVE REALLY MILD ACNE AND I'VE TAKEN THIS MED FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS NOW. I EXPERIENCED NO SIDE EFFECTS AT FIRST, BUT NOW I FIND THAT I AM "ITCHY" ALL OVER TO THE POINT I AM TAKING BENEDRYL FOR RELIEF. I DON'T PLAN TO TAKE ANY MORE SOLODYN AND HAVE CONTACTED MY DR FOR SOMETHING ELSE.

I stopped using this medication about 6 months ago and I am just starting to notice new hairs sprouting up where my hairline was receding. I strongly suggest talkin ... Show Full Comment

I have been on this medication for about a month now. I am using it in combination with face cream differin. It seems to be working great. I have tried just about every thing (even proactive didn't work), and this seems to be doing the trick. I did suffer from major major headaches at first. However, I have stopped taking this drug with food, and the headaches have gone away. Just a hint ... Show Full Comment
