Minocycline vs Doxycycline

Hello, I was on doxycycline 50mg for about 3 months and it was working well. Then I got bumped up to 100mg and it gave me awful stomah aches. So, now I’m taking minocyxline 100mg. During the week or two I was taking no antibiotic my acne has flared up a lot. Will minocycline be as effective as the doxycycline? Is there really a big difference between the two? And how long will it take to start working?

they both seem to be bad, lymecycline is to me the best one, never get an upset stomach on that, and clears acne perfectly

It differs per person. Mino is very soluble, and works in far lower doses... I took it long term, and always worked for me. Doxy you need usually in higher doses. One must try.
