    Hello,
    I was wondering what the practical difference is between minocycline hydrochloride uncoated tablets vs tablets that are coated. And for that matter, what the practical differences between tablets and capsules are.

    Hi,

    I’m fairly certain that all minocycline tablets are coated, even if they don’t claim to be. The main differences between tablets and capsules are:

    1. Almost all generic minocycline capsules contain corn starch, and most contain dyes.
    2. Most generic minocycline tablets do not contain corn starch or dyes.
    3. Generic minocycline tablets sold in the U.S. are much more expensive than generic minocycline capsules.
