  1. If you just went to the dermatologist today and got prescribed it, how can you have run Cross Country on it? 100mg for one day will not do what you say.
  2. Your depression may not be linked to Solodyn but there's one very sure way to find out, and that's to come off of Solodyn. Replace it with a non-tetracycline antibiotic (Erythromycin, Trimethoprim, Ampicillin, Bactrim, Cephalexin, etc). Your first move should be to drop Solodyn, not counter it's possible effects with anti depressants - which can be a nightmare to quit.
  3. The only candidate I know of for pressure inside your head while on Minocycline is Intracranial Hypertension. This is what the person would have had the spinal tap for, to check the pressure of the spinal fluid and relieve it if it's too high. ALL tetracycline based antibiotics have the potential to cause Intracranial Hypertension. Minocycline / Solodyn seems to be the worst for it though. What happens is the drug either causees the body to produce too much spinal fluid, or prevents it's normal
  4. The list of side effects for Soloydn / Minocycline is long. Tiredness / fatigue is one of them. Minocycline gave me intracranial hypertension. Intracranial hypertension can absolutely cause depression, tiredness, fatigue, sap motivation, and all sorts of other madness. Anybody on Solodyn / Minocycline and not feeling right should stop using it, forget about their skin for a month, and just concentrate on how they feel.
  5. Yes. Although depression is not listed as a side effect of tetracycline based drugs, that does not mean their use cannot lead to it. I took Minocycline for a long time, not knowing it was causing intracranial hypertension. Now anybody with intracranial hypertension is not going to be the most upbeat person you have ever met. Intracranial hypertension can definitely, directly, cause depression. Also, tetracycline's can directly cause fatigue and tiredness. Those are listed as side effects.
  6. That may well have been intracranial hypertension. I had it, caused by Minocycline.
  7. It's possible it may not work for you, but...you gotta give it time. Two months, bare minimum, I would say, and I've taken lots of different antibiotics. They really can start working their magic two months in. I'm thinking about taking this myself, haven't tried it yet.
  8. That happened with the polio vaccine. The guy who invented it didn't patent it so everybody could make it. He said it would be as absurd as patenting the sun. The problem with this is - somebody already patented it. Not sure how patents work but they do run out for most things I believe. Not sure if this can still be patented for this long. It may be able to because it's not been in use, not sure.
  9. Yet another person who feels a million times better off of Minocycline.
  10. If I got trouble breathing / chest pains on any tablet, at any time, I would stop immediately and call a doctor. Breathing is kinda serious ya know. As an aside, I think minocycline should be an absolute last resort antibiotic. And not just because I got intracranial hypertension on it.
  11. Do they? You know what actually caused the government to get into drug control big-time, don't you? It was the terrible thalidomide scare in the late 50's and early 60's. It caused some HORRIBLE birth defects in the babies of pregnant women who took the drug. After that, the FDA realized they had to carefully monitor and control the development of drugs. Can you really blame them for that? Of course there needs to be an approval process and oversight, you can't have companies selling a
  12. BP should come with hospital overalls, to be worn at all times. Also, hospital bed sheets. And towels. Completely impractical. You can't wear anything of any value. And if you do sports you're in for a whole lot of fun, when sweat is pouring down your face. You may as well pour Domestos down yourself.
  13. I used Quinoderm 10% for several years and it's the best BP I found. WAY better than Panoxyl. For me, 2.5% Panoxyl was unbearable. Mega irritation. Wheras 10% Quinoderm was fine. Something in the Panoxyl didn't agree with me. But others have said similar about that stuff. Although I can't compare Quinoderm with Dans because I haven't used Dan's BP. Quinoderm 10% was always, significantly, better than any 2.5% for me.
  14. This thread seems to have transformed from topical ibuprofen to tea tree oil. I have tried tea tree oil, neat, as a complete replacement for BP. BP kept my face 99% clear. I was looking to change purely because BP is a pain in the ass for bleaching everything. So I switched to tea tree oil neat. Absolutely zero problems with irratation, didn't have any. However, it did not keep my face anywhere near as clear as BP. For me I would say it didn't work at all. And this is neat, 100%! I had read on
  15. Remember the entire acne prevention industry goes right down the toilet once a perfect vaccine is easily available. Just watch Roche buy the patent and shelve it.
