Minocycline

Minocycline (Cynomycin) is a type of antibiotic that will assist with removing harmful bacteria from the body. This allows the immune system to step in and to fight the bacteria as it isnít able to continue growing. Some of the types of infections that this form of medication can be used for include urinary tract infections (UTI), acne, STDs (sexually transmitted diseases), and ticks.

Minocycline is offered in an oral form and has to be taken for a period from 7 to 10 days. The dose may be one or two tablets per day depending on the severity of the bacterial infection. It is very important to take every single dose even if you start to feel better. Otherwise the bacteria will have the opportunity to grow again and make a person very ill. At the same time though the body can build up a resistance to the antibiotics.
