ya, everyone on here always knocks mino, but i have been on it for like 8 monthes and i am gonna stay on it all through my hormonal stage of my life. I only take one simple pill a day, a very small dose. It simply controls my skin. I am not clear, but my acne is extremely minimal. My derm is gonna let me stay on it for atleast two years, just to control it, AND I HAVE NOOOO SIDE EFFECTS....Just thought i would tell everyone...
Glad it worked for you. Didn't for me.
Please be aware of candida growth that happenes because antibiotics kill good bacteria in your intestine and let candida multiply.

If you tolerate yogurt, please eat a lot of plain one without sugar. It will help maintain your intestine flora.

Unfortunately, as soon as people get off antibiotics, acne comes back.
good to know its working for ya...BUT just so that u know its gonna be a pain in the behind when you go off it, the acne will come back and u might get some acne on other place. In addition, u dont get any side effects with mino and what not, but u do get after effects, like mentioned above, and whats more this can be bad for ur inner system. Not saying this to degrade to make u and other aware......g-luck
ok, to all you peeps that said it comes back after you go off the stuff, of course it comes back if your body is still in that phase. Thats why i am taking a very small amount untill i am done with this stage, because for me i know that acne is just a hormonal growing up stage, i am going to stay on it to simply control it until i am done with it.

You might become resistant to minocycline just like with any antibiotic. I became resistant to doxycycline and erythromycin. It cleared my acne totally for some time but then I started breaking out again a lot because I had become immune to it and this could happen to you. Also acne is not always just a hormonal growing up phase. Some people in middle age still have acne.

Hi there...
yeah...minocin is great, but only works WHILE you are on it. You will need to come off of it at some point, your doc. or derm will NOT let you stay on it for years and years...trust me! I was on minocin for a few years, I loved the stuff because my face was so clear, and finally my derm stopped prescribing it to me because I had been on it for so long. AND...my derm was fairly lenient. Many derms and docs won't let you stay on it for as long as I did. I don't have acne anymore, as I am on Diane-35...that cleared me of my acne... Find something else that works for you, because minocin only lasts for a short time.
While mino is keeping the acne away, it still deposits stuff into your body which might possibly be released when you get off of mino. The mino is stopping infection, but it doesn't stop the sebum production, bacteria builds up and when you stop taking mino, you could possibly "hit a brick wall."
I'm female and it gave me horrid yeast infections every month, along with ringing in the ears....then it started leaving these grey spots on my face where ever a zit had been so my doc took me off.
ok, first of all, to the person who said its not just a hormonal stage, well i know that, but for me it is just a hormonal stage, this is why i am going to take mino until im out of this stage. so when i get off it my body will be done wiht this **** stuff called acne. so everyone on here that has such a bad f#uckin attitude can bite me, you all seem so negative and always tellin people stuff wont work, this works for me and will continue to work. also did u know taht mino is one of the only drugs that ur body can almost neever become resistant to. so there all u negative people, u all prolly just mad u have not found what works for u, so good luck , and stop with the dam negative comments, on this board ur supposed to support people and comfort them, NOT say oh well what ur doin wont work, [email protected] this, bye
IHATEZITS I do not have a bad attitude and you are horrible for making mean comments just because I said it is not a hormonal stage which is correct and I do not see how you can be sure it is a hormonal stage for you unless you are psychic. You can NOT know that minocycline will continue to work for you unless you are psychic. I was simply telling you that I became resistant to another antibiotic and a lot of other people have said the same thing on here so that you would be prepared and not caught off guard like I have been in the past so I was trying to do you a FAVOR but since you are a horrible person you did not appreciate it and so I am now laughing and happy at the thought of you eventually becoming resistant to minocycline and breaking out in acne again because with your negative attitude and mean comments I know you deserve for your acne to come back and I totally believe it will!

LOL, very funny! I think he just got upset, but I can totally see why you said what you did.
I'm on mino...what is this stuff I hear about it causing stuff to build up, etc? I understand getting resistant to it, b/c your body does become resistant to anything after a while, but I never heard that it stores stuff up.Please tell me more.
Also, take acidopholus tabs if you get yeast. I take 2 tabs a day, and it works great.
