Abx Folks - Minocycline Question

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My doc prescribed Mino for me last week, 100 Mg 2X/Day. He's prescribed it for it's immunomodulating properties, not its ABX properties, but at least he prescribed it.

Started it last week, and found it very hard to take. Lots of dizziness, nausea, feeling very spacey. So much so that I had to stop, because I needed to function at work. I'm anxious to start up again, but would like to slowly build up. ...

My Neurologist Sucks, how about yours?

O.K. -- So I had my second 3 month check-up with my Neuro on the 26th.

Uh,Where can I begin? I'll begin by saying that I didn't chose this man to be my Neuro, the hospital did, and he just stuck. I didn't like him to begin with, but I figured I could live with him since he was allowing me to order lab tests that I thought I needed (Lipid, and Hepatic panels..). I ...
