What Is the Best Way to Take Minocin?

General Minocin Dosage Information

Some considerations for people taking Minocin include the following:
 
  • The medication comes as a capsule that is taken by mouth, usually two to four times daily.
     
  • Minocin can be taken with or without food.
     
  • It is important to take the capsules with plenty of water (or other fluids) while in an upright position, in order to prevent the medication from irritating the throat. Do not lie down immediately after taking this medication.
     
  • It does not matter what time of day you take this medication. However, it should be taken at the same times each day to maintain an even level of the medication in your system.
     
  • For the drug to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. It will not work adequately if you stop taking it too soon.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Minocin dosing in general, please talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider.
