Minocycline or Minocin?

Hi, is anybody taking Minocycline aka Minocin Antibiotic for Adult Acne here?

If so, Have you experienced any hair loss?

i have a prescrption bottle of Minocycline on my shelf. I'm hesitant to start using it because of side effects. I'm only using a Differin topical cream right now. I used to take Accutane and I lost some hair off that. So I don't know if I want to use the minocycline.

I took it for about 1.5 months. 100mg/day initially then went to 200mg/day - no hair loss. The only side effect I had was hyperpigmentation which is fucking worse than losing hair temporarily.

I stopped taking it so I have about 50 pills left. If anyone wants it, holla.

I took minocycline for about 3 years, and I never had issues with it. It worked for me, no side effects. I haven't taken it in about 3 years now, because I don't get outbreaks anymore.

d1: Minocycline has an expiration date, and if they are old, I suggest that you throw them out. I forgot how long the shelf life was though.

I forgot to check the expiration date but it should be around a year. I got it in the beginning of August so it's quite new still.
