Minocin (also referred to as minocycline) is an effective acne treatment. It contains the active ingredient minocycline hydrochloride, which is a form of antibiotic called a tetracycline. It works by interfering with the bacteria associated with acne, stopping them from growing and multiplying, this then enables the body's natural defences to remove them effectively. Minocin is administered in the form of a 100mg capsule and can be used by men and women over the age of 18 with acne.

How does Minocin work?

The active ingredient, minocycline hydrochloride, effectively treats acne by targeting the bacteria responsible for the infection. By preventing these bacteria from producing proteins, the minocycline stops them from multiplying and growing. This means the infection is unable to spread and the body's natural immune system is able to kill off the remaining bacteria and end the infection.

Minocycline targets the bacteria propionibacterium acnes, which as the name suggests is the main bacteria associated with the appearance of acne. Spots are caused by inflamed and irritated sebaceous glands due to the buildup of dirt and bacteria beneath the skin. Minocycline can help to reduce this inflammation, so the skin is able to heal.[1]

What are the benefits of Minocin?

There are a number of significant benefits that can be experienced when taking Minocin capsules. These include:

  • The ability to treat acne infections, meaning spots are healed and the skin condition is improved.
  • Easy to use capsule form compared to other acne medication such as creams and gels.
  • A lower concentration compared to other acne treatments reducing the risk of side effects.
  • Improved self-confidence from clearer skin
  • The likelihood of scarring from acne is also reduced.
  • Money can be saved that would normally be spent on creams and lotions for the treatment of your acne.

How to use Minocin

Minocin is available in the form of capsules, in a 100 mg dosage. Using these tablets when treating acne are quite straightforward.

  • These capsules should be swallowed whole with a glass of water once daily, at the same time every day.
  • You can choose to take the capsules either with or without food.
  • You should never adjust your dosage, unless you have specifically been advised to do so by your doctor.

You should be aware that no acne medication is an instantaneous treatment and it may take several weeks before you start to notice improvement in the condition of your skin. If you do not see immediate improvement, you shouldn't feel disheartened and should continue to take the capsules until the course of treatment is finished. If you complete the full course of treatment and still have not seen an improvement, you should speak to your doctor.
