Antibiotics Home > Minocycline for Acne
For the treatment of acne, many healthcare providers prescribe minocycline, an antibiotic. Because the drug can help control the growth of bacteria and reduce inflammation, fewer pimples and less redness are often the result. Although several other oral antibiotics are available, minocycline is usually the preferred option, because it usually responds better than other antibiotics, is easier to take, and generally has fewer side effects.
