No: Solodyne is a tetracycline antibiotic commonly used for acne treatment. In pregnancy and nursing it can pass through to the fetus and cause a discoloration of the baby's teeth that is not correctable. Tetracyclines, including doxycycline, Minocycline and solodyne should not be used in pregnancy or while nursing.

No. Talk to your dr.: Soludyn is a tetracycline antibiotic most likely used to treat acne. It is known to cause enamel hypoplasia and bone anomalies in the fetus, therefore not a good idea in pregnancy. Although there are no studies of tetracycline use during nursing, it is excreted in breastmilk, therefore you should avoid taking it while breastfeeding. The good news is that there are other ways to treat acne.

Yes, short term: Solodyn, or minocycline, is an antibiotic, and in general, antibiotics are compatible with breastfeeding. With this antibiotic, however, only short-term use of Minocycline is recommended while breastfeeding. Milk levels are low and absorption by the infant is inhibited by the calcium in breastmilk. Long term use may (may) damage the baby's teeth. Black discoloration of breastmilk may happen.

Yes: If you are asking whether or not you can take vitamins while pregnant or breastfeeding then the answer is yes. It is recommended that pregnant women take a multivitamin while pregnant for the Folic Acid and iron. Any adult multivitamin or two flintstones a day is more than sufficient. You should not take more than the recommended dose however. You can develop toxicities if you take too much.
