For how long should I be on Minocycline.

I'm wondering if I should stop or continue. I heard it can affect muscle growth by damaging the gut flora. Since I'm lifting, I don't want it to affect my progress.
My questions are:
Should I stop minocycline since I have been taking it for a year now and maybe it has no effects on me anymore?
If I stop, will my acne come back? I don't wanna breakout.
If I have to choose between acne free and muscle growth, I think I'll choose acne free.

I don't have much acne now. Just oily skin, blackheads and occasional inflamed pimples.
I read somewhere that your body develops defense against antibiotics when you take them for a large period of time. I don't really know what to do, and I'm kinda scared to take the risk and stop using it.

and ya the mino is supposed to keep your zits not inflamed, when i took it my face showed really good improvements in that, and when i stopped it came back.
if your doctor didnt tell you, you are actually supposed to stay away from milk too in like the 4 hours when you take the pill. what i did was i just stayed away from milk all together.

edit: nvm, I just did some research and you're right.
on another note: my dermatologist said to take it with food. Is this okay?
