    I think Watson might actually work better for me than Teva did…heart arrhythmia went away once my pharmacy started getting Watson instead of Teva. I had Teva for the 1st 6 months I was on AP. What about Minocin itself? How can I get that?

    Have you asked your pharmacy if they have any Minocin? Mine had one bottle left, but at $900 with my insurance, I decided to stick with the generic. You maybe have better insurance?

    Hi Your insurance comppany most likely will not approve minocin –If you can get DR F. to write a note saying you need the pelleted brand you have a chance on appeal –Minocin is readily available at a cost of about 14,00 per 100 mg capsule –my last minocin rx cost the insurance company 2600 for 180 capsules –

    Teva mino (100 mg capsules) doesn’t agree with me. I suspect that the culprit is D&C Red #28, a dye that my mother is very allergic to.
