My son has been taking Minocycline 100 mg. for 1-1/2 years to treat acne. I need to know if there are lasting side effectis from being on an antibiotic for that long
Minocycline can cause stomach upset and even acid reflux. It's best to take it with food. But sometimes prilosec or tums might be needed to help. I took Doxycycline and it upset my stomach to the point where I had to take a lower dose called Periostat. Periostat has been working great.
