    Hi—Solodyn is minocycline marketed to acne users —-they make it in 45 mg and 90 mg –it is extremely costly –However –There is now available a 50 mg and 100 mg generic —the company is cute –the protection ran out on 50 and 100 mg so they remade it in 45 and 90 and obtained protection —leaving the 50 and 100 to generics –the reason I mention this is that all this is extended release and while I use minocin the brand which is also a delayed release and I just wonder if the delivery might be better —

    Solodyn might be useful for people who cannot tolerate Minocin or generic minocycline since the extended-release nature of the drug would tend to make it less of a shock to the body. However, it is likely to be gentler on the “bugs” as well, so I would only use it as a last resort.

    Hi–It might even be better –look how effective minocin is and thats a “modified release “

    Minocin is not a modified-release formulation. If it were, pharmacies would not be able to legally sell capsules containing powdered minocycline as generic equivalents since they would not be bioequivalent. However, there is a modified-release version of Minocin called Minocin MR.
