More Medicines That Interfere With Minocin

Oral Typhoid Vaccine
Minocin may decrease the effectiveness of the oral typhoid vaccine. If you have taken Minocin recently or are currently taking Minocin, your oral typhoid vaccine may need to be postponed for at least a day after finishing Minocin.
 
Penicillins
Minocin can make penicillin antibiotics less effective. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Minocin with a penicillin medication.

Retinoids
Combining Minocin with some retinoid medications may increase the risk of a dangerous condition known as intracranial hypertension. In many cases, such combinations are not recommended. Make sure to check with your healthcare provider before combining such medications, making specific mention of this interaction.
 
Warfarin
Combining Minocin and warfarin may increase the risk of bleeding. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your INR and prothrombin time more frequently and adjust your warfarin dosage if necessary.
