Is minocycline-oral safe to take if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?
Minocycline should be avoided in pregnant women because it crosses the placenta and may cause fetal harm.
Minocycline is excreted in human milk, and there is potential for serious adverse effects involving the development of teeth and bones in nursing infants. A decision should be made to discontinue medication or stop nursing, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
