    My skin cleared up so perfectly. My dermatologist wanted to put me on Accutane but I saw too many bad reviews on it so the next option was Solodyn and I do not have one complaint on it. Works perfectly, clear skin again! Yay!

    I took this medication for only 8 days. On the 6th day my scalp was extremely itchy but I didnt expect it had much to do with the Solodyn. Next day same thing with on and off headache.

However, through the fault of my doctor I guess, I was kept on it longer than the standard three months (almost 10 months) and started having serious problem like joint pain and swelling that led to a false positive for lupus. I stopped taking the medicine and then I improved and didn't have anymore symptoms. ... Show Full Comment

    I've been taking this drug once a day (before bed) for about 1.5 months. I receive laser hair removal from my legs, so 10 days before my appointment, I stop taking the drug, then continue it after my treatment (doctor approved). I seem to have an upset stomach the day I start the drug but that is about all... No dizziness either. My Acne has reduced by about 95% with the occasional 'smal ... Show Full Comment

Who informed me I was having very rare side effects with lupus like conditions and told me not to take it anymore. I also has itching on my head face and my lips but with no ... Show Full Comment
