Minocin is a long-acting antibiotic which is used to treat a wide variety of conditions caused by a bacterial infection, including severe acne. It works by inhibiting the growth of the bacteria which causes the infection, allowing the skin to heal more effectively.
In the treatment for acne, it can take several weeks for changes to become noticable. If no improvement is seen after six months, speak to your doctor about alternative treatments.
"When taking antibiotics, it’s important to complete the course of treatment, even if the symptoms subside or you feel better. Stopping the treatment of antibiotics early can cause the bacterial infection to return or may affect future antibiotic treatments." Mohamed Imran Lakhi, Superintendant Pharmacist for Prescription Doctor.
For the treatment of Acne, the usual dose is 1 tablet a day, taken with a glass of water. However, the Doctor can give a more tailored treatment depending on the severity of the acne. Please follow the instructions given to you by the doctor.
