By comparison, minocycine afforded me a robust antidepressant effect that appeared in the first week of treatment. It is my impression that this effect is the result of any of a multitude of other actions of minocycline that are absent in the other tetracyclines.


Interesting indeed. I take it minocycline's antidepressant effect was not sustained? Were there notable side-effects?

Side-note: always be sure your 'cycline' is within its expiration date. Unlike most drugs, tetracyclines become poisononous after expiration (gradually, I assume, but I wouldn't push my luck on this one much, from what I've been told)
