Lamdage brings up some important points. However, some people's depression is the result bacterial infection like tick-borne pathogens. In this case, doxycycline is a reasonable choice. (Not advised for children under 8 and pregnant women). To the best of my knowledge, doxycycline does not exert anti-inflammatory properties like minocycline does. This is one mechanism by which minocycline is thought to improve depression and the NEGATIVE symptoms of schizophrenia. Others include its ability to modulate glutamate excitotoxicity.

It is my impression that the minimum dosage of minocycline for psychiatric use is 200 mg/day.

I tried minocycline for depression at 200 mg/day. It helped. However, after 2 years, I developed hyperpigmentation discoloration of my feet and shins. It was at this point that I decided to discontinue it.
