    This is my second try to post. Forgive me if I repeat myself.

    My doctor and compounding pharmacist are leaving it up to me as to how many milligrams of minocyclene to start with. So do I start low and slow at 25 or 50? Or do I start with where I left off at 100 BID on MWF. Remember I am trying this because I broke out in a rash after they switched my generic. I did well on Ranbaxy, but not PAR or Torrent. Thoughts?

    Hi,

    I would start at a low dose, and the reason is a simple one. If you are now allergic to minocycline, it is likely that you will react to it even if the dose is small, and it would be better to try to minimize the intensity of the reaction. If you don’t break out in a rash from a small dose of minocycline, but you do from a larger dose, then it’s probably another type of reaction, and not a true allergy.

    Thank you. That sounds most reasonable. Will do.
