Thanks for posting this. When I take minocin, I feel much, much better. At least for a while.
The problem is that I also seem to have lyme and/or other bacterial infections, which was the reason I started taking it in the first place. So, after feeling better, I start feeling much worse (herxheimer) because of the bacteria die-off. After a few days, I am a basket case. There is no doubt in my mind that minocin decreases inflammation before the herx kicks in. I try to explain all this to my doctor, but just doesn't seem to get it. I would take minocin just for the anti-inflammatory aspects if I could.
I doubt this is suppressing XMRV, but who knows. I have an open mind.
