Dynacin Side Effects

Because Dynacin is an older medication, only vague information is available on the drug's side effects. Based on Dynacin's prescribing information, possible reactions may include things like nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and increased sensitivity to the sun. In rare cases, more serious side effects, such as shortness of breath or allergic reaction, may occur. Notify your doctor right away if you develop these reactions.

An Introduction to Dynacin Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Dynacin® (minocycline hydrochloride) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Dynacin. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)

Common Side Effects of Dynacin

For many medications, the prescribing information carefully explains the exact percentage of side effects that were seen in clinical trials. However, the prescribing information for almost all older medications, including Dynacin, includes only vague side effect information, with no percentages. Therefore, it can be difficult to know exactly how common the side effects of such medications may be.
Based on this information, possible Dynacin side effects may include but are not limited to:
  • Lack of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Indigestion or heartburn
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • A spinning sensation (vertigo)
  • Increased sensitivity to the sun.
