    There has been some improvement in my acne since taking this medication. But it's difficult to decipher whether its this oral antibiotic or the topical creams that have helped the most. The worst effect of this medication is the severe constipation and that's even after eating a high-fiber diet, rich in fruits & vegetables and oatmeal daily. And now experiencing bloody stools, therefor ... Show Full Comment

    I began using Solodyn about 3 weeks ago. Two days ago I broke out in mild hives all over my body and have been really dizzy. My doctor told me it was the minocycline, and is changing my prescrip. It was beginning to work and my acne was clearing up. So it's like do I choose no acne and take benadryl for the rest of my life or be hive free but have acne :-(
