"Doctors tested the man's vision along with other indicators of eye health, and the results were all normal. But the whites of his eyes were indeed a bluish color, as were parts of his ears, according to the report, published today (April 18) in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The reason for the man's discolored eyes and ears turned out to be in his medicine cabinet: He told doctors he'd been taking a medication called minocycline as a treatment for inflammatory arthritis for 15 years. Minocycline is an antibiotic typically used to treat bacterial infections, but because the drug has anti-inflammatory effects, it's sometimes used to treat rheumatoid arthritis (a type of inflammatory arthritis), according to the American College of Rheumatology."

I at first thought (reading headline) that he had been taking colodial silver.

There is a man who took colodial silver for many years and looked like one of the smurfs.

and it seems to be different than the doxy staining - which is on the surface and is cleaned off with dental instruments.

The grey/blue seems to be under the enamel...

Mine didn't come off with dental cleaning

Yup - silver can turn you blue...takes a lot to do it though....not just daily, but high doses.

"However, one year after stopping minocycline, doctors did not see much improvement in the man's sclera discoloration, the report said."


That's scary - didn't disappear after a year being off it.

Yikes, I'm back on the mino now....
