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!

I have been taking Solodyn for about 3 months, and it was very effective. When I stopped taking it, my breakouts returned so I went back on it and after only a week, I can tell a vast improvement. However, after reading other reviews, I realized that my severe hair loss is probably due to this drug. Will be consulting my doctor to find a solution.

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. My next step was to get any dark spots on my face to fade which included me using ... Show Full Comment

I have been on a low dose for about 2 years now and it has worked very well! My face has cleared up almost to the point that I feel comfortable not wearing makeup. I have had moderate acne for about 5 years. I had a few mild side effects at first - dizzyness/lightheadedness, but only when I didn't eat before taking the pill. I recommend this medication to anyone who is fed up with acne and spe ... Show Full Comment
