I was wondering if I could take minocycline or actuane with diabetes medication?
For example victoza or insulin shots.

I have had friends that have taken it and it has really helped them. It has been tough to have acne my whole life and even though I am much older now its still there. So i just wanted to take one last stand. If it doesnt work than so be it.

I had never heard of Minocycline so I looked it up. The results of the search may be found here ~ http://www.drugs.com/minocycline.html

I had heard of acutane and found this here ~ http://www.drugs.com/accutane.html and here ~ http://www.drugs.com/sfx/accutane-side-effect...

According to this those who have diabetes should avoid accutane.

I've just read the articles about Accutane-they should put a skull and crossbones on each bottle! Better yet, why is this stuff even on the market. Looks to me like the side effects far outweigh the benefits. Scary stuff.
