Minocycline & Solodyn affect growth potential

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this site and i'm curious about something. When i was 14 or 15 i started taking minocycline along with clindamycin topical. I went on and off solodyn/minocycline about 3 times, which is something i regret doing a lot, because it did not make a huge difference and every time i went off of it my acne came back worse than before. It was a waste of my time and my parents money. well i looked up the long term side effects, and apparently it can cause premature closure of the growth plates in some ppl who are still growing, which is a funny thing because when i was 15 i stopped growing completely, am 17 now and remain at 5'9". I was supposed to get to 6' or 6'1" because there is not a single guy in my family who is anything less on my moms or my dads side. what i'd like to know is if anyone else taking mino long term or repeated short term noticed that they stopped growing before they were supposed to or if i'm just going crazy for no reason at all.
