My son's derm just prescribed him nicomide instead of his usual minocin. He's been on the mino for 5 months. She said to continue with the mino, but only once a day instead of twice, and start the nicomide once a day. Then after tapering the mino for a month, start the nicomide twice a day. She said they had had good results with patients using this, that it helped with inflammation. He is to continue using benzaclin in am and retin-a micro at night. I really want him off the antibiotics, but am skeptical about the effectiveness of this nicomide. Anyone have any experiences with this drug?
