My LLMD wanted me to increase my dose of mino from 200 mg per day to 400 mg/day.   This seemed like a higher dose of mino than most Lymies take (especially considering that I'm a smaller-average sized guy).   A week and a half ago I started slowly increasing my dose of mino.   Since increasing the dose I have developed a dry, unproductive cough and also have some pain in my back.   Tonight I googled 'minocycline and cough'.   The first several hits discussed how mino can cause these type of side effects at higher doses (and sometimes with prolonged lower doses).  Anyone else experienced this?    of other side effects from Mino?
One more tid-bit.  Mino is twice as lipid soluble as doxy.  Therefore, 200mg of mino is roughly equivalent to 400mg of doxy.
