In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
