    Does anyone have any suggestions to help with graying skin from using minocycline. I have been on it for 12 years and have now two places on my face and a place on my leg.

    Hi Rose,

    Have you considered talking with your prescriber about rotating to a different tetracycline for a while? Also do you take daily ascorbic acid/Vitamin C?


    Maz I take Vit. C 500mg. daily, and they could not get my Watson brand when I recently had to refill my prescription and they gave me Zydus, hope it works.


    I had this issue on my shins for a short time. I switched to doxycycline for 6 months, added 1000mg Ester C with K2 and it has never returned.

    Systemic Scleroderma since 2010. Lyme and Myco P. AP and many other antibiotics and treatments since Nov. 2011. Presently mostly in remission other than fatigue.
