I have been taking solodyn for just over a month, I am in my fifth week and I feel like I am breaking out???? I think I had a little break out around week three then week four I thought it was helping now another breakout??? is it normal to still break out in week five, then clear? how long does it take to work???

I'm in week 7 of the solodyn antibiotic, and still no results. I switched from Doxycycline to the Solodyn (just because I was on doxy for 3 years and derm thought i should switch it up) but I don't remember having to wait this long for results with the Doxycycline and I'd really like to switch back.

If you haven't tried doxy before, I'd recommend giving it a try.

Doxy was the only antibiotic that ever worked for me (clear for about 4 months-amazing). I started to become resistant to it about 6 months ago, so my doctor put me on solodyn.

Solodyn has done nothing for me, its a derivative of Minocycline which is not good for you, and I just read on their website that it does not work for cystic acne..contrary to what my derm told me.
