Expired meds


The class of antibiotics called tetracyclines ,of which minocycline is one ,can do damage to the kidneys after they're expired unlike many other medications. You probably won't experience any adverse effects but don't used expired medication.

See below


They are all 3 antibiotics of the tetracycline class and have very similar antibacterial spectrums. Minocycline and doxycycline can be given safely to patients with renal failure. Minocycline gets high nasal and sinus levels and is good for MRSA colonization treatment. Doxycycline can cause photosensitivity but is otherwise well tolerated.

Benadryl


or diphendydramine is an antihistamine. Minocycline is a tetracycline antibiotic. I don't believe they are related in any way.

 Alcohol Antibiotic Infection Minocycline Sumycin Tetracycline

Yes


No problem taking tetracycline class antibiotics with alcohol but keep it in moderation. If you have a significant infection it would be best to abstain until the infection has resolved.

Assuming you are talking about acne, bactrim, and clarithromycin work well. Both can be used with topical clindamycin!

Sure


Don't drink milk near the time you take your medicine or it may inactivate it. Hope you get a good result. Some physicians will monitor your liver functions while you're doing this.

Can minocycline cure syphillis?

Answered by:
Dr. Joel Gallant
Infectious Disease

Probably


Doxycycline, which is related to minocycline, is used to treat syphilis in people who are allergic to penicillin, the preferred drug. Minocycline would probably have activity against syphilis, but it hasn't been studied the way doxycycline has.

Not really


Amoxicillin and minocycline are both antibiotics so they are related in that regard. Amoxicillin is a type of penicillin while minocycline is a type of tetracycline. They are chemically unrelated and have different antibacterial spectra.
