Like Lindacarol, I have never, ever had a problem with acne, but she is correct when she says that minocycline, in fact al the tetracyclines, is/are effective against acne. Several people taking abx as a treatment for MS have noticed this, doxycycline being the preferred tetracycline in this case. Doxycycline is also used as a prophylaxis against malaria, something else from which I have never suffered. It did, however, do a lot of good for my MS.
An Itinerary in Light and Shadow Completed Dr Charles Stratton / Dr David Wheldon abx regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years. Still improving with no relapses since starting. Can't run but can paint all day.
