Mino or Tetra?

... NOT a dermatologist said Tetracycline, which is covered, was the same thing except I'd have to do twice the dosage of Minocine. Let me explain. I'm on 100 mg of minocine twice a day...the doc said if I were to instead go on Tetra I'd have to take them 4 times a day...cept I don't know the dosage. Probably not 100 right? ... (5 replies)
... How has your luck been with Doxycycline? I just started it 10 days ago, and my acne has started to gradually disappear. Now, I'm hoping it sticks! When I was on tetracycline, it cleared up and then came back mid-treatment. With minocine, I finally had a Dr. send me home saying, "you are not dying. You do not have a brain tumor. You are perfectly healthy. Just don't... (8 replies)

... i was on minocin for about four months and it seemed to do nothing for my skin. the only thing it accomplished was giving me severe headaches. i went off it for three months and my skin improved drastically. i occasionally got a pimple but it would disappear within a couple days and i stopped getting cysts. now the cysts are back and my skin is back where it was before. i...

... Has anyone got any side effects from this pill? Ever since I started this pill, about 4 days ago, I've been feeling nauseous and lightheaded, should I stop taking this pill???? My jaw also hurts, I don't know if this is due to the minocine (14 replies)
... yeah, I'd like to know too Deedee! My son is using the .04 RAM, and I was wondering should he go up to a stronger 1% after a few weeks as his skin gets used to it. He has been using it for 7 weeks, the first 2, every other night. He's also using benzaclin and minocine. He's still getting a few pimples here and there, nothing really major. Nomoreacne: I don't think... (4 replies)
... 8 days is nothing. You should give it at least a month before you make any judgements what so ever. Dermatologists recommend that you wait 2 months, so give it some more time. Just keep applying it and the time will go by and hopefully you will see your improvements. I have only been using it for a little over a month now, and to be honest I am seeing improvements. I am still... (40 replies)
... se or better. I still have been breaking out the same. I went to a derm about 3 weeks ago and have been still washing 2 times a day with St. Ives plus he gave me minocine to take 100 mg's a day along with applying duac gel on my face at night. My skin looks maybe a tad better, but nothing to be extremely excited about. ... (5 replies)

... i was on 200mg/day of the minocine. i have very small but constant breakouts, so i dont feel i need an antibiotic to clear my skin. the differin and benzaclin are working great. its just not worth the side effects for me. i took 2 Acidophillus capsles every day and still got the infection.

... I have done the antibiotic roller coaster. I hope you realize that antibiotics cause the acne to build up a resistance against it, and it comes back stronger and worst than ever. Minocycline did horrible things to my immune system -- I am still recovering! I really thought I was going to die -- weakness, fatigue, tremor, vertigo... I will never take it agian, even...
