Minocycline And Insomnia

3 posts in this topic

I started taking minocycline 100mg a day about 3 mo ago. I’ve never had problems sleeping in my life, but ever since being on this I have moderate insomnia. I can normally get to sleep ok, but I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and feel like I’m wide awake. Which leads to being really tired and irritable the next day as you can imagine.

My doctor said he’s never heard of minocyline causing insomnia, but when I do a google search I see groups of people wondering/complaining about the same thing. Has anyone had this side effect before? I should say that I seem to be in the 2% or whatever of people who get side effects on any medication. Yay. And no, before you think it, I’m not a hypochondriac smile.png . I didn’t even put 2 and 2 together on this until about two months in when I thought hmmm maybe the insomnia is related to the mino.
