This antibiotic is only for bacterial infections. This antibiotic will not treat viral infections like the flu or the common cold. Antibiotics that are not required can make it ineffective for future infections.
Minocycline can be used as an antibiotic. Minocycline works by stopping the growth and clearing the infection. Minocycline can be combined with other medications to provide treatment for severe acne.
Minocycline works better when taken on an empty stomach. Minocycline is typically taken one to two hours from eating, every 12 hours. Minocycline should be taken with a full glass of water unless your doctor has instructed otherwise. If you feel that your stomach gets upset with this medication, you should start taking it with food or milk.
When you are taking the capsule version of the medication, take the capsule whole. After taking the Minocycline, do not lay down for at least 10 minutes. It is best to avoid taking it before going to bed.
Minocycline should be taken 2 to 3 hours before or after any medicine that contains aluminium, calcium, magnesium, iron, or zinc. These products can bind to minocycline and prevent the body from fully absorbing it.
Your medical condition and response to treatment will determine the dosage and duration of Minocycline treatment.
Tell your doctor promptly if you experience any severe side effects such as:
difficulty in swallowing
changes in your hearing
joint stiffness, pain or swelling
symptoms of kidney problems
symptoms of liver problems
The other rare side effect of Minocycline is that it may increase pressure in the skull, especially in overweight women of childbearing age or who have had IH in the past. Consult your doctor or nearest medical facility if you experience a severe and constant headache, eyesight alterations, or continuous vomiting.
It may, in rare cases, cause a severe intestinal condition due to a type of resistant bacteria during the treatment or weeks after the treatment has stopped. Disclose your doctor of the persistent diarrhoea, stomach pain, or blood/mucus in your stool.
Disclose your doctor of any severe allergic reaction, including persistent fever, unusual lymph node swelling, itching or swelling, rash, difficulty breathing, and severe dizziness, and any other illness or condition that you have or had in the past. You should also disclose if you are pregnant, planning to get pregnant or breastfeeding.
Minocycline may make you dizzy, so it is advisable to avoid alcohol or any drug that can make you dizzier. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or doing something that requires alertness till you can do it cautiously.
Minocycline may make you more sensitive to sunlight, and it is better to limit your exposure to sunlight. Apply sunscreen and carry guarding clothes when going outdoors. Disclose your doctor of any sunburn or skin blisters/redness.
Minocycline may reduce the effect of live bacterial vaccines, so it is better to avoid getting vaccinated or immunised while using this medication unless your doctor advises you.
It may cause sensitive effects on children below 8 years, particularly tooth discolouration.
Do not combine this medicine or alter the dosage without the approval of your doctor. If you are getting any lab tests done, disclose the usage of this medicine to the lab personnel.
