hello doctor, does minocycline has any special reaction to a large amount of alcohol? if so, what is the reaction and is it dangerous?

Real danger: Drinking a large amount of alcohol is itself very dangerous, not least being that you may do something you will regret for the rest of your life. Minocyvibe can cause dizziness and light headedness exacerbated by alcohol but this is the least of the dangers. Be smart.
