I'm currently taking minocycline for my skin. Is it bad if I drink alcohol while taking this medicine?
Yes. Are we talking one can of beer on the weekends watching football, or drinking a six pack or more a day? Alcohol can affect the metabolism of many drugs, and is not good for acne to begin with. Minocycline has some potential effects on the liver, as does alcohol. Talk to your doctor. Small amounts of alcohol (one or two drinks no more than one or two times a week prob ok, more is not).
