I HAVE REALLY MILD ACNE AND I'VE TAKEN THIS MED FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS NOW. I EXPERIENCED NO SIDE EFFECTS AT FIRST, BUT NOW I FIND THAT I AM "ITCHY" ALL OVER TO THE POINT I AM TAKING BENEDRYL FOR RELIEF. I DON'T PLAN TO TAKE ANY MORE SOLODYN AND HAVE CONTACTED MY DR FOR SOMETHING ELSE.

I have been on Solodyn for 1 month, and have experience several side effects including headaches, dizziness and the same "out of sorts" feeling others have described.
