26 Oct 2012 My son took solodyn on and off for two years. I would advise anyone experiencing any side effects to solodyn to stop taking it immediately. We just now linked the "issues" he was having over the past two years to solodyn. When we would go to the doctor about symtptoms he was not taking the medicine. He basically had the following side effects but never at the same time and we did not kink it to the med at the time. Joint pain, hives, swelling, fatigue, acid reflux, mouth sores, elevated liver enzymes, foggy feeling, tooth discoloration only on two teeth- In an effort to figure out why his liver enzymes were elevated we found a tumor in his kidney. Not sure if it is connected. Urologist at cancer center asked us to report it to FDA just in case. His tumor is benign but he may still lose the kidney. We will deal with the acne. No more meds of any type, it is just not worth it. He is an outstanding athlete on scholarship and almost missed starting his freshman year in college because of this.

22 Jun 2012 Solodyn has been and still is terrible to me the last two weeks. I only took it 3weeks. I was not taking any other meds. No one could tell me why i was sick. 3 different doctors so many test. fever,chills,sweats,enlarged liver,fatigue, not eating, terrible itchy rashes. Did not think it was the solodyn at first because i believed i would have had a reaction to the first week of taking it. I just found out two days ago that it is the solodyn. I have been off of it 2 weeks now but this allergic reaction is not under control. My face and skin look terrible. Trying to treat mild acne has made my face 20x worse. I have a rash all over my face and now has spread all over my body. I now have to take steroids to stop the reaction. I don't wish this on anyone. Meds affect people differently. Unfortunately Solodyn has and is hell for me. I stay in my room so no one see's me. Can not go outside currently due to the heat makes it worse. I know God will see me through this though. My issue may not happen to you or others but it is possible.

10 Jun 2012 Overall, my experience with solodyn has been good. I've been taking it for almost 2 years, and it has cleared up my severe acne almost completely. Except for some nausea when drinking alcohol, I've had no symptoms that I can directly attribute to this drug. However, my PMS symptoms have gotten worse, and I get very depressed a week before my period. I don't recall my mood swings ever being this bad before I was taking solodyn, but I'm cautious to blame it on the drug.
