u should not take minocycline while on tufacne.

minocycline is good but has some side effects like pigmentation of skin. so i think better to a safer congener like doxycycline. again consult a dood dermatologist. take care.

Hi! dinesh,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

dinesh ,you should never ever take minocyclin tab along with tufacne .It can cause pseudo tumor of cerebre (one gets sever headache in this).I am happy that you have asked this question ,kindly follow this advice.Tufacne is a wonderful medicine ,but should not be combined with other tablets .It also has other precautions ,which I hope your doctor would have told and discussed with you.Before taking tufacne one should go for certain blood investigations,which i again hope you have got it done.If not then kindly discuss with your prescribing doctor .Kindly consult a dermatologist and not a general physician for acne.

Other creams are all fine.Also use a anti acne face wash regularly.Don't squeeze your pimples.Drink plenty of water and take good sleep in night.If you have any further question, kindly mail me .
