 1  Cystic acne We are in a living hell due to this medication which triggered an autoimmune response in my then 14-year old son. He continues to struggle with daily abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and bowel issues 2 years after stopping this medication. His derm was very defensive and refuses to concede that this med triggered all of this, but she now has Solodyn listed as an allergy on his chart & will not place him on any oral meds for his acne due to his "sensitivity." My child never had any kind of GI issues prior to taking Solodyn, but ended up in & out of the hospital after taking it for about 1.5 months. He lost over 20 lbs & missed 2 months of school initially due to his extreme GI issues and he continues to suffer daily -- it breaks my heart! Do NOT take this medication, it is horrible. I would give anything to be able to turn the clock back & to never have consented to try this med!!! M 14 2 months

 1  Acne Joint pain, nausea, vomiting, dark urine, itching, headache, elevated liver function tests. This drug triggered autoimmune hepatitis in my 17 year old daughter. She was very ill and had to take a high dose of prednisone for 9 months to reduce the inflammation in her liver. Please stay away from this drug. F 17 5 months

 5  peri-menopausal acne None that I can tell. I was concerned when I developed acne and rosacea for the first time at age 44. After trying a few topical medicines that did not work, solodyn worked beautifully. It is expensive, though. F 45 120 days
