    I used this to get rid of my cystic acne and it really worked for me. I stopped taking it for a few months until my acne became worse again and now i take it regularly and my skin has NEVER been better. My skin is super clear.

    I have been on solodyn for 12 months and I still have bad acne. No side effects though. I definitely break out when I drink alcohol, but that is probably true independent of any medication.

    So I finished 10 weeks of Solodyn and I'm having mixed feelings about it. I only have acne on my forehead but it's cystic acne and it breaks out pretty bad. I'm 21 and always had acne here and there but nothing to bad. This summer however I really started to break out on my forehead. I'm growing my hair out so I am wearing a lot of hats but I make sure their clean and I make sure m ... Show Full Comment

    This medication was very helpful for my skin but after a week of taking it, I have lost 10 pounds and have no appetite. I currently am no longer taking it because I am worried about this side affect.
