    my ds just finished his medical forms and the only "yes" he has is for minocycline. He has been taking 1 tablet 100 mg a day for the past 5 month for breakouts. He took it prior and discontinued for 6 month only to see his skin worsen so just began again in April. Will this be a problem?

    I just passed my DoDMERB 100% and I too, take minocycline. Actually, the example provided for me in my packet used minocycline as an example.

    It should not be an issue, I wouldn't worry.

    They likely won't care that your son takes antibiotics for acne. Fairly standard for teenagers.

    Now some of the other meds for acne, yep, they'll mind. And if for some reason someone is deemed as having "severe" acne they may care. Most likely in your case you won't see another word about it.
