Other than the battle of making a trip to the lab every month for blood work, I have had excellent results from Solodyn. I started seeing results in the first week of treatment. There were problems with minor headaches for only about two weeks in the beginning.

I'm currently going into my fourth month of taking the medication. My doctor said that typically, you should be cleared by the end of the third month, and I'm not.
