Solodyn and Hepatitis
If your acne is causing red, inflamed, pus-filled bumps, you may want to consider Solodyn® (minocycline hydrochloride). This medication comes in the form of an extended-release tablet that is taken just once a day. It works by interfering with bacteria's ability to make protein, but may also have other effects that make it effective as an acne treatment.
This drug is not appropriate for everyone. For example, if you have any of the following conditions, you may not be able to take Solodyn:
- Renal failure.
Severe upper-right abdominal pain (stomach) pain, jaundice, and dark urine are some of the signs of hepatitis. If you are taking Solodyn and experience any of these symptoms, contact your healthcare provider right away.
