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.

My dermatologist prescribed this antibiotics for me about 3 months ago n they work great. I dont experience any of the side effects and my skin is clear. It took about almost 2 months before I saw the improvements though.
