Should I take probiotics while on minocycline?

3 posts in this topic

So far I've been on minocycline for over 5 months and will take for a few more months until I see my derm again. I know that 6 months is usually the cut off for antibiotics because you can develop a resistance to it. I know that dairy has probiotics, but I've read several times that dairy can irritate acne. Has any one done this and it helped in general? What are the benefits it provides? Thanks any help would be welcome.

Taking probiotics while on antibiotics sort of defeats the purpose.

I'd just wait until your course is done and then take a probiotic supplement.

After suffering with acne since age 11, finally found my triggers 11 years later.

Clear for almost 1 year & in control of my acne, although due to some hyperpigmentation, I believed I was still breaking out. In fact, I thought I had just cleared up a few months ago, but after realizing my "breakouts" were simply scarring I also realized I was technically clear for much longer than I thought. Rare breakouts only whenever I get lazy with my diet.

The Cure for Acne:

-Avoid the Acne Trifecta: Soy, Gluten, and Dairy like the plague.

-Eat a Low-GI diet and avoid Sugar.


-Get lots of green vegetables and sunshine.

-Supplement whenever possible. Due to how much we've ruined food in the past 60 years, the amount of nutrients found in food nowadays is lower than it was decades ago.

-Exercise, get sunshine, and avoid stressful situations.

-Don't fear food. Go out & eat. It's not good for the skin, but it's good for the soul.
