Going from tetra->minocycline


I've been taking tetracycline on and off for a couple of years now. Recently tetracycline has started aggravating my stomach and seems to be lossing its effectivness. I went to the derm and he prescribed me some minocycline x2 a day. My question is currently i'm taking 4 caps of tetra so how do i transfer over to mino? Should I A)stop taking tetra all together and start mino B) slowly (weeks time) come off tetracycline and then start taking minocycline?

any help is appreciated,

Hmmm...sounds like a doctor question. Yeah, deffo ask the doctor. But minocycline will hopefully clear you up. Good luck.
