After using for a couple of weeks I started noticing joint pain in my fingers wrists arms, toes, ankles and decided to discontinue use.

No more Solodyn for me, no thanks!! This product has so many side effects, it will get you dizzy for like 3 sec every time you make a fast move (get out the chair,car or bed), it will get you angry and cranky (my friends noticed that a lot), ladies: your period cycle will get messed up (instead of regular 5 days, it may be only 2 days).The worst side effect is you will gain weight, (I gained 8 pou ...

Somewhere I read it happened to someone else too and it took weeks to go away. Hop ... Show Full Comment

Easily the most pain I've ever experienced. I believe it is an allergic reaction to ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking this medicine for almost 3 weeks now. The first week, I actually looked pretty good. I didn't get any new breakouts until a week ago, when I got my period. It was terrible! I have gotten a huge cyst on my chin and many smaller zits all around my lower face. My period has been gone for 4 days, but I am getting new pimples almost everyday. Just yesterday, I got another cystic ... Show Full Comment
