Hi.

> Emme in her thread has mentioned the anxiety as a side effect, and that she takes a Xanax with Minocycline.

One's reaction to the introduction of minocycline is probably variable. I experienced no anxiety at all. I need no benzodiazepines for anxiety nor sleep. My depression initially presented with anxiety, particularly social anxiety. CBT helped a great deal.

I hope I don't have to increase the dosage of minocycline. It is hard to be patient. Many studies of minocycline for use in psychiatric illnesses go up to 200 mg/day. I now take 100 mg/day. I feel like it is helping, though. I am weaning off of prazosin 12 mg/day due to dosing difficulties and side effects. I am currently at 6 mg/day. A few weeks ago, I would have deteriorated at that dosage. I seem to be okay so far. I am cautiously optimistic.
