What is Minocin MR (minocycline)?

Minocin modified release (MR) contains minocycline hydrochloride, a tetracycline antibiotic. Minocycline is available in capsule form and is usually used to treat acne. Acne is a skin condition which results from the clogging of skin pores and causes spots such as blackheads, whiteheads, pinheads and pimples to develop on the skin. These spots then become red and inflamed due to bacterial infection. Acne usually affects the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms, and tends to begin during puberty but is also prevalent well into adulthood. Some 20% of adults suffer from acne worldwide but this rarely continues beyond the age of 25. You can read more about acne here.
