I recently visited my doctor and asked him about switching from Doxy over to Minocycline. He was willing to do it but was rather uncomfortable with it due to the experience several of his patients have had with it in the past. Consequently, I'm wondering how common these experiences might be?
What he said had happened is that several of him patients began having skin discoloration. Their skin would turn blochy/blackened. It would be as though they had a dark patch of skin, sometimes very large patch covering their side or legs. By dark, I'm talking the color of dark coffee, or cholocolat.
Anyway, I decided not to press on switching to Mino, yet, but it's still riding around in my cranium as something I may due at some point.
I'd be interested in what people have seen or had happen with it, what side effects, this one or any others?
