The very first thing my current doctor did with me is start me on doxycycline. I remained on it for three months. He first wanted to rule-out Lyme Disease. On the other hand, monocycline helped quit a bit to improve depression. I was forced to discontinue it because, after a delay of about a year, I developed black and blue hyperpigmentation of the feet, ankles, and shins. It took over a year after discontinuing monocycline for the dark discolorations to disappear.

Last time I looked into it, monocycline was deemed a much more potent anti-inflammatory for the brain than doxycycline. I think it reduces the secretion of inflammatory cytokines by microglial brain cells. Brain inflammation is seen commonly in depression. Chicken or Egg?
