In brief: Should not

Minicycline should not cause baldness.
The most common side effect of this class of medications is photosensitive so you should use sunscreen or cover yourself while taking this medication. As in any medications, the list of side effects is long. If you suspect any out-of-the ordinary symptoms, come check it out with a local physician to be examined thoroughly.
