Talking Minocycline Helped Me!!

Hi all.

I have depression as well as a host of other physical problems, one being chronic infections. For years, I have had to take antibiotics which cause me to be very depressed, despite antidepressants. I have been praying and searching.

I started Minocycline 100mg twice a day four days ago. Nothing but pain relieving (anti inflammatory) and depression lifting for me. I know any antibiotic can cause depression and this one certainly can, but there was a study, and in it 1/3 of the depressed patients actually got better. I knew it was a long shot....but it helps!! I will let you know if it turns on me after a while. I just wanted to tell everyone about it because it is a prayer answered and if you are dealing with mental and physical illness, it may help you. It also may help treatment resistant depressed patients.

I think people take it for acne so that is a plus if you have some skin issues!

Good luck!!

Re: Minocycline Helped Me!!

EarthMommy - what an amazing thing to happen for you. I had minocycline prescribed to me for acne, and have used it only one time for a bad flare. Didn't notice any change in my mood, which defenitely could use a lift, but will be watching the next time I use it.
Good luck with it, I hope it continuesfor you, and yes - please keep us posted!
Wishing you peace and comfort,

I was on antibiotics (including minocycline ... all of the "cycline" family I think) for 2 years for acne when I was in my late teens. All they did was give me digestion issues and stomach problems. Cool.
