SOLODYN: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Acne “Solodyn worked amazingly. BUT, on day three I experienced tiredness in my body physically. The day after I stopped taking it (day four) I was experiencing joint pains that weren’t pleasant. I thought this would be safer than Accutane but it has some of the same side affects Accutane has. I don’t want to risk my health for clear skin. But remember everyone reacts differently. You could multiple side affects or none. Solodyn could work for you or if couldn’t. But if you ever do take it don’t take it longer than three months and every day notice if you are showing any side affects. You are beautiful with or without acne. Don’t let your skin define you. Don’t let it rule over you life. You decide how acne affects your life.”

For Acne “Was prescribed this last week, all was going well I noticed my skin was clearing up real nice. THEN I all of a sudden had an allergic reaction to it and have now since broken out in a rash that resembles immature chicken Pox all over my face/neck and now its going further down on to my chest. It feels drier than my skin has ever felt. For the record I have oily skin so when I say my face felt ridiculiously dry I mean it was insane. I look like I have chicken pox. This is awful.”

For Acne “I am 18 years old and I have been on Solodyn 55mg for three months now and my acne has only gotten worse. I had minimal breakouts on just my forehead and it honestly wasn’t the worst, but I wanted it to be gone. My derm prescribed me with this medication for two months and after three weeks of taking the pill I started getting giant cysts on my jawline and cheeks. It is truly awful and I feel as if it is a waste of money and effort.”

For Acne “I’m 18 years old and I’ve had horrible red inflamed acne since I was 14. My derm has put me on every topical cream he could think of and I was on Minocycline for six months I believe and at first my skin was the worst its ever been but then it was flawless due to the pill and my birth control. I stopped taking minocycline because my acne cleared up. I just recently started breaking out again so he put me on solodyn and its only been a week and my acne is worse than it ever was before taking oral prescriptions and even worse than my skin at its worst while on minocycline. I’m hoping that it’ll have the same effect and clear my skin completely but right now its hopeless.”

For Acne “Started taking this medication about 2 months ago and it worked immediately. I usually average about one or two cystic acne breakouts a month along with smaller pimples that pop up here and there, but solodyn has kept my face clear throughout this whole time. The only side effects I’ve noticed is increased tiredness in the evening and minor migraines, but this is a payoff I’m willing to make for healthy skin!”

For Acne “At 24 after struggling with hormonal chin acne (that flared before period) and occasional breakouts in my t-zone, my derm prescribed 65mg Solodyn, and Retin A in conjunction with a cleansing routine 2x a day using Cerave followed by Simple Smoothing Toner. At first, I did not see much improvement. Then at the one-month mark, all hell broke loose; I broke out like crazy for 2-3 weeks, huge zits in areas of my face that were not previously a problem. I was embarrassed and ready to call it quits, but after reading about it getting worse before it got better, I ordered my refill and decided to give it time. Suddenly, 1.5ish months in, success! No new breakouts (fingers crossed), and I even just started my cycle. Patience is the key w/ Solodyn”
