Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for minocycline to work


Hi nick, The most likely answer for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>minocycline</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> stop working is that the bacteria bacame resistant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>, this can happen when you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> an antibiotic for a long time. The bacteria find a way to 'evolve' and build a resistance so that particular antibiotic can no longer effect them. The Bactrim DS you have been prescribed contains 2 types of antibiotic and the DS on your medication stands for Double Strength.
Wrap the ice in a paper towel or plastic baggie and hold <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> on the pimple for a few minutes, then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> off for a few minutes, and then put it back on again for a few minutes. You can do that 2-3 times a day. it may help with inflamation and redness. Hopefully your derm will have another solution for you! Like I mentioned before, there are other antibiotics you can try.
She recommended that I try Accutane but since there is blood work involved and constant monitoring which I don't have time for I decided <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> settle for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>minocycline</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> be before I will start noticing improvement in my skin? how long can I stay on minocycline? Getting off the topic, will it clear up the dark spots (hyperpigmentation) on my face and back? What will work for that? Hydroquinone comes to mind but is there anything stronger than hydroquinone 4% cream.
Or is there some amount of time that should/must pass, before I can return <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>minocycline</span>? And if so, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>? I thank everyone for reading this, and I appreciate any and all feedback and knowledge you may have on the subject. it is most helpful.
In my heart of hearts, I know those other doctors aren't right, I know that I've had positive Lyme bands, I know that all the symptoms point that way, but I don't want to tell myself that I am going to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> feel this way for another year... even another week longer. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is tough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> face, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> FEEL, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> treat... I know you've been there and possibly went through this phase as well and like an angel are here to encourage us to get through it. Bear with me while I walk the fence.
I still think it's weird that I didn't respond much, if at all, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the first three herbals I took for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. I guess <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is very true that different people respond to different meds.
You should have been provided with an axial-traction device, and been taking anti-inflammatories (starting with prednisone and ibuprufin, then going to only ibuprufin) while recieving short sessions of axial traction for ten to fifteen minutes with a two hour break and then another treatment all day long. Prednisone is commonly started at 60 mg for four daya, then cut <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> 40 for three days, then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> twenty for a week and then fifteen for a month, then ten, and finally five.
My new LLMD took tests for co-infections. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. Ask you doctor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> send your blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> Igenix Labs in California. They KNOW how to test for Lymes!! And they also swab the blood and put it under a microscope. Now I know what shape may parasites are. AWFUL!! Other labs will probably come out negative while this CA lab would show positive. Let us know.
I mean it can go on forever. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> each of us <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> charge of our own health and be informed as much as possible. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> many times have you caught mistakes I know I have. You mentioned the Lupus Foundation, well a biopsy is a lab test. As a microbiologist I worked in the department of pathology and the when there was an odd parasite for example that you want to have someone look at besides your supervisor you can walk over to the pathologist and ask them. We work together.
We don't want to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> term, but why should have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>? If the charcoal absorbs toxins etc. What is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> absorbing that alleviates our symptoms? If we stop taking the charcoal for just one night, the next day the symptoms are all back full force and sometimes worse! PLEASE GOD HELP US ...
) Also, got my prescription for LDN and it will be at my doorstep tomorrow! I'm calling my LLMD tomorrow morning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> make sure it's ok with her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>, but curiously looked on the Internet (I know, I said I wasn't going to do that anymore) to see if LDN could be taken with plaquenil (just to educate myself before I get docs ok. Don't worry doc will make the final call).
I'm sorry to hear you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> on this tone, because <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> might cause you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> lose your audience. I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> force myself <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> read the rest of your post, some of which was very good. An example of autoimmunity which is not Lyme Disease, but is totally understood. The interior of the eye is completely hidden from the immune system. If a person suffers a penetrating puncture of one eyeball, suddenly the protein-rich vitreous is exposed to the blood stream and the immune system.
For those of you who are still waiting for an accurate diagnosis or who have symptoms of Chronic Lyme Disease, but your physician refuses to treat you.... there is an option that is available to you and one that has been working for me. I switched from an antibiotic protocol to Dr. Jernigan's natural formulas and I was surprised because I am having herxing symptoms on Jernigan's treatment.... even the yeast formula !
So, I am going to go through some OT treatments he wants me to do next month and give a good college try, just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> rule <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> out. I would love for the OT <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> - but I'd bet $ that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> absolutely will not. I haven't had time to even sit down and write you guys....sorry about that. I am traveling alot lately and working my behind off, so I will try to keep in touch. I haven't even had time to fill the minocycline until today! it will be interesting to see how I feel on the abx!
They are recurring and it seems to be hidradenitis suppirativa and if you are dealing with this disease then I urge you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> try and find treatment ASAP because you will need <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. And sometimes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> takes a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> find a doctor that has experience with this disease. Sometimes it can take years to diagnose because it is not widely known and there is not a lot of research being done. Sometimes it can get really bad by the time you find someone that knows what it is.
it is an allergic reaction <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>minocycline</span>, right? I haven't taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> in seven days, and every evening, I break out in hives somewhere on my body. tonight, it is my thighs. itching like crazy and bumps all over, red as fire. What is this? Shouldn't the minocycline be out of my system by now? Getting no answers or even treatment from my doc and very frustrated. This stinks. Sorry guys, quite annoyed this evening. take care all.
I think of herbs as Mother Nature's pharmacy, and over time have become more open to the whole concept. My LLMD was an all-antibiotics-all-the-time kind of doc, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> worked for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> me -- <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> a point. I had babesia (like malaria) for which antibiotics seem to work well.
What treatment did he receive and how long did <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for him <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get this far? Is he fully recovered now? In regards <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> cord testing if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> comes back positive what is my next move? An nhs doctor may not understand treatment of lyme ? And especially children? The other side is if negative do I just wait and watch? Or do I get him tests regularly to see if anything shows?
I have not had one panic attack since RAI on 2008 when the radioactive iodine killed off the thyroid (Graves and HYPER). <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a while <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> balance the meds and levels and this is where you have to learn to 'recognise your symptoms". Keep a journal...logging everyday, your dose, your symptoms etc. I used this many time to look back at the pattern. Hope this helps.
I have heard from many latley that Mepron isn't working, for me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> didn't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> either. I took Malarone, Rifampin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>minocycline</span> (which is in the same family as doxy but helps barts and lyme). Is this all from your new LLMD? Of course I would check with your LLMD but that list of medications sounds like too many. My Babesia (knock on wood) was gone within 6 months. The Barts is still hanging in there.
Is your natural skin color fair/medium/dark? The reason I'm asking is just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get an idea of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> well <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> for me. I have tan/medium skin and don't make much Vitamin D in the sun unfortunately. Also I'm wondering if this works for women with hormonal/cyclic acne.
Most of us get sick in our twenties just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> enough for the bacteria <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> start <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> over, if we were born with congenital genetic defects I don't believe we would have lived to see our third birthday, far before being of reproductive age to pass the defective genes on to offspring. So I believe blaming only genes alone on our illness is irrational, and is a short cut to thinking, that is just another myth that has persisted in modern medicine.
I need to get my arms / hands into recovery mode, my income depends on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. They are not going nub anymore, but have very tight jerky movements. I need to support my elbows for fine motor skills involving my hands, they are shaky.. This is a lyme symptom that is easily found if searched, but I have not found the magic trick to improve this yet. it seems to have something to do with lyme anxiety / tremors, but it is also separate some days as well when anziety is under control.
If all goes well I'll be off by November but still on the imuran. Have you been on prednisone and gotten off of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> usually <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> for the side effects to go away? Is constant fatigue apart of the drugs or the disease? Do you know anything about imuran that I may need to worry about?
I just tried the Sauve Clarifying and Listerine trick, and I am sad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> say <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> did not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> for me. Although, I'm glad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have worked for many of you! I will be going to the store tomorrow to pick up some apple cider vinegar and palmolive and I hope that will help.
I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the ER, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative. I have had bloodwork done and it was negative. Just wondering if anyone else was experiencing same symptoms.
