My doctor put me on minocin (minocycline) for my acne but I'm nervous of side effects and drug induced lupus. Are these very rare? I've been on this drug years ago.

Those are rare. Those are rare. It is always a balance between possibility of side effects and the value of their use in treatment for any medication, but inducing lupus is extremely rare.
