What is a generic medication?

Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication.

Solodyn Drug Information

  • Solodyn Overview

    Solodyn is used to treat moderate to severe acne in people 12 years and older. It helps to reduce the number of pimples. Minocycline belongs to a class of drugs known as tetracycline antibiotics. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria that may make acne worse. This antibiotic treats acne that is thought to be caused by a bacterial infection. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.

  • How to Use Solodyn

    Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking minocycline and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take Solodyn by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once a day. Swallow Solodyn whole. Do not crush or chew. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Take each dose with a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters) unless your doctor directs you otherwise. Do not lie down for at least 10 minutes after taking Solodyn. For this reason, do not take it right before bedtime. You may take Solodyn with food to lessen the chance of irritating the esophagus or stomach unless your doctor directs you otherwise. Take Solodyn 2 to 3 hours before or after taking any products containing aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium, or zinc. Some examples include antacids, didanosine solution, quinapril, vitamins/minerals, dairy products (such as milk, yogurt), and calcium-enriched juice. These products bind with minocycline, preventing your body from fully absorbing the drug. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition, weight, and response to treatment. For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take Solodyn at the same time every day. Continue to take Solodyn for the prescribed length of time. Do not skip doses. Stopping the medication too early or skipping doses may allow bacteria to grow and make your treatment work less well. Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse.
