... ring the summer humidity, these drive me nuts. Your story is inspiring, I think I am going to give the diet a try for a few months with supplements, begin taking acidophilus to build up the good bacteria, then stop the mino. ... (8 replies)
... better. i took acidophilus for a couple weeks after going off. ... (8 replies)

... I was taking acidopholous while on tetra and minocycline. I heard that it is supposed to totally help with the good bacteria. I'm not sure if it will affect the increased breakoputs you're having though. You've been on it for 5 years?? My body adjusted to it i think in about 6 months. Maybe try tapering off of mino and onto b5 at the same time. Take it slow to ease any... (8 replies)

... I don't know about respiratory infections or liver problems. I am currently taking minocycline for 2 months, so maybe the long term effects aren't an issue for me and that's why my derm didn't mention them. ... (3 replies)
... mino was miraculously wonderful for me personally. it began to work almost immediately and basically got rid of all my acne (facial and back, and now i have nothing on my back). if you plan on being on antibiotics for awhile i would suggest you take acidophilus (refrigerated, otherwise it doesn't work) which you can find in most health food stores and which replaces the good...

... Im in my 3rd week of doxycycline and my face is excellent now. No new breakouts, doxy works the same was as mino. Id suggest, as im going to do also, is to get some acidophilus which is good bacteria and take this when your done with your mino/doxy. This will give you your good bacteria back that your body needs. Doxy/mino kill ALL bacteria, good and bad so this is a must if... (7 replies)
... the antibiotic kills all bacteria. There is some bacteria that is beneficial to your system but minocycline doesn't care it kills it anyway along with the bad bacteria. If the good bacteria is killed your system gets out of whack and you get more acne. ... (15 replies)

... But I consider myself to have very good digestion? I drink lots of water (like more than 8 glasses a day) and I eat very well (fruits, cereals, veggies, yogurts, meats on occassion, and no fast food, cause I know my body has a hard time digesting it). So I don't know??? :confused: I'm going to the dermatologist today to see if he can figure out whats going on? (4 replies)
... Refrigerated acidophilus is the best kind. You can find it in health food stores like Whole Foods. ... (4 replies)
... Don't worry about any ambush, your comments are more than welcome! I'll have a look for what you are recommending. (8 replies)
... Thanks for the post Laurenmarie. How long were you on mino for and what side effects did you exprience? I recently began noticing the blue skin effect on my hands when they are cold, and darker tinted skin on my face (may be topical related). Also, did you do an acne diet at the same time as getting off mino? (8 replies)
... I think it totally stopped working for me by the time I went off of it, so there wasn't any change in my acne after I stopped taking it. I think it was around that time that I found this board and started b5. (8 replies)
... How long after stopping the med before seeing the full effects of being off of it. I have been on two 50 mg capsules/day for a long time, but recently started taking one per day for about 10 days now. Very little difference, but i have also started an acne diet at the same time. (8 replies)
