Is Solodyn an Antibiotic?

If your healthcare provider is recommending Solodyn® (minocycline hydrochloride) to treat your acne, you may be wondering what kind of medication this is. Solodyn is a tetracycline antibiotic, which means it interferes with bacteria's ability to make protein. This process is important for bacterial growth and multiplication. This product may also affect the bacteria that cause acne in other ways that are not yet understood.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with Solodyn, tell your healthcare provider about any other medications you are taking, including supplements, and let him or her know about any other medical conditions you have. This product is not right for everyone, and sometimes another antibiotic needs to be used instead.
