> did nothing for psychosis, it made things worse i am wondering how i will respond to minocycline, i tried, Augmentin high dose, Clamoxyl 1500 mg a day wow yes... :( im so sad right now
Minocycline is a single drug with many properties, only one of which is antibacterial. At least one of the properties of minocycline being focused on for the treatment of schizoid disorders is that its being an anti-inflammatory. Brain inflammation is seen in several psychiatric disorders, including depression. I think there is an anti-glutamate thing happening there, too.
The bottom line is that you cannot extrapolate to minocycline your experiences with the other antibiotics you have taken.
If you have a chance, perhaps you can ask your doctors why they prefer minocycline to doxycycline.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
