I was on minocycline 100mg daily for 7 months which ended June of 2008. I had blood work which confirmed I had high levels of Candida (more than double the normal range - under .9 mine was 1.9)

I'm now on antifungals and a Candida diet for the next 6 months to combat the overgrowth of yeast. I'm 5 weeks in and my skin is 85% clear - even after 7 months of minocycline I was not this clear!

I also developed Melasma - hyper-pigmentation on my face directly linked to Minocycline - 5 months into taking the minocycline. (That's one of side effects.)

Minocycline is an antibiotic which not only kills the bad bacteria, but also the good which can cause an overgrowth of Candida. FYI - I never suffered from yeast infections so I had no idea my Candida levels were high in my blood stream. My doctor has prescribed me to take natural antifungals such as: garlic, caprylic acid, aloe, etc along with the no sugar diet, yeast free diet. I'm sure I would have been able to clear my acne with a sugar free, yeast free diet and the natural antifungals had I known. It's a HARD diet to follow.

Just be careful - if you do take antibiotics try to supplement with a good probotic after treatment and don't remain on it too long.

I am just finishing my first month of minocycline and my only side effect thus far is nausea. My derm is going to wean me off when i'm done with my first month which is a week away. I'm guessing she will prescribe me a lower dosage. I am trying to eat a lot of yogurt as suggested on these forums for the live cultures provided. I also use Green Vibrance it's a powder probiotic, i'm really hoping that this will be enough to combat the growth of candida.
