... effects that it could hamper growth, I was wondering in what way and if it was a big chance
Yes, it has been reported that; do not give this medication to a child younger than 8 years old. Minocycline can cause permanent yellowing or graying of the teeth, and it can affect a child's growth.
It is recommended that you seek a second opinion & seek an alternate med which does not hamper growth, hope this helps?
