 5  acne I was on other meds for other things so not sure what side effects this caused. I was suffering from cystic acne. It was horrible. This cleared it up in about 2 months. I was maybe getting one small zit when I started my period but other then that all acne was gone. It was so great and a great alternative to more extreme drug like Accutane. I had to stop taking it due to insurance changes and it wasnt covered and my face broke back out again, maybe worse now. That is the bad part I guess. Also, its very expensive without good insurance. I miss it so much! F 31 1 years

 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

 3  cystic acne Continual yeast infection that does not respond to prescription medicine treatment as the anitbiotic is a long term daily medicine. Medicine works great for my face. Little harsh on the stomach, but I often have tolerance or nausea with tetracycline products. The recurring yeast infections from the medicine are to the point of unbearable and I may have to discontinue use of the product F 40
