I've only been on solodyn for two and half weeks therefore I can't write a complete review but I will share my experience so far. I've always had acne prone skin but at 16 I started taking BC and even though I broke out it wasn't terrible.

My 18yr old daughter has been taking this medication about 5 weeks now. Her face has cleared tremendously! What a difference and her spirits are lifted! It's working great for her so far with NO side effects. I don't know what all these people are talking about with these bad reviews?? Not here!
