Description: Solodyn is an extended release formulation of minocycline hydrochloride (Minocin).

Minocycline is a semisynthetic derivative of tetracyline. The tetracyclines are primarily bacteriostatic and are thought to exert their antimicrobial effect by the inhibition of protein synthesis via binding to the 30S subunit. The tetracyclines have similar antimicrobial spectra of activity against a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative organisms.
