Should I take probiotics while on minocycline?

3 posts in this topic

So far I've been on minocycline for over 5 months and will take for a few more months until I see my derm again. I know that 6 months is usually the cut off for antibiotics because you can develop a resistance to it. I know that dairy has probiotics, but I've read several times that dairy can irritate acne. Has any one done this and it helped in general? What are the benefits it provides? Thanks any help would be welcome.

Taking probiotics while on antibiotics sort of defeats the purpose.

I'd just wait until your course is done and then take a probiotic supplement.
