my 14 year old son has been taking this medication now for 2 months and now he's having trouble sleeping, he's also having bouts of anxiety and loss of appetite. Can the two possibly be related? He is not taking any other medication, neither otc or prescribed.
Depression is not a known side effect of Solodyn, but loss of appetite is a serious side effect. Please get him to see a doctor to have it checked out. Please also let your doctor know that he is feeling depressed.

I also have a 14-year-old son who has recently been started taking this medication. Started 65 mg Solodyn approximately 1 month ago, in September. I can say WITHOUT RESERVE he has always been a very happy child.
He has a minor case of acne (no cystic acne), more like pustules and some whiteheads.
Now he is fatigued, depressed, seemingly has trouble concentrating. I immediately looked online and am comforted to see others have posted these symptoms for their children or themselves.
He takes no other medication or vitamin supplement.
