Water and Minocycline, am i obsessing over this or what?

So as some of you may know from previous posts of mine, i'm on Minocycline, currently 5 days in. The last 2 days i've been drinking water like a man possessed (yesterday six .5 liter bottles, and today seven or more i wasn't counting). I've been wondering, is this excessive water drinking going to lessen the effect of the antibiotic, i take 2 capsules at bedtime. Today i must have urinated 10 or more times. Is too much water no good while on this medication? My dad insisted that it can't hurt, but i was thinking of the possibility of me peeing out some of the treatment? May be a stupid question i'm posing here but if anyone has anything to say about it thad be good. thanks

Re: Water and Minocycline, am i obsessing over this or what?

Man, that's a lot of urinating and probably too much water. It might flush out whatever Minocycline uses to get rid of acne.

I just want to warn you, Minocycline messed me up and a lot of other people on this board. I have a yeast infection on my arm that the dermatologist can't get to go away (I've gone through 5-6 topicals trying to get it to go away) and my acne got WORSE after I was taken off of the stuff. It didn't work very well anyways.

I would get off it ASAP.
