How can I get Minocycline in the UK?

Hi,

I'm interested in trying Minocycline antibiotic as a therapy and have approached by GP and neurologist who both say they don't recommend it as it's still unproven.

Have other people had this problem and if so, how did you manage to get around it?

Thanks,

Julie

How does one go about finding a doc who knows about ABX &

I'm near Chicago and would love to find a doc that is well versed in how to treat MS with antibiotics. I'm not a fan of them but would be willing to give it a try to see if it would help.

Comprehensive Antibiotics Info + Suceptibility Database

Not as comprehensive as it might be. Where are doxycycline, minocycline and roxithromycin in the treatment of Chlamydia pneumonia? If multiple sclerosis is put in train in susceptible people by a C pn infection which gets into the brain, abx which also get into the brain are needed.
