ZINC and minocycline

Recommended Posts

so ive been taking minocycline for about a month now, and havent seen any good results. i have been taking 35 mgs of zinc a day for about 6 months. i take the zinc at least 2 hours after i take minocycline (100mgsx2 times a day), but i feel that the zinc is not fully absorbed in a matter of a few hours, and is interfering with the absorption and effectiveness of the minocycline. can this be the reason why minocycline isnt working that well? how long does it take the body to fully absorb zinc (30~50mgs). i have a feeling that zinc takes more than just a couple of hours for it to be completely absorbed. maybe even a day. does anyone know?

Zinc supplements will be absorbed within minutes. It will take longer if you take the zinc with a full meal.
