NHS England Low Priority Treatment - Minocycline by all CCGs

Why it matters: Minocycline is mainly used for acne, however there are various safety risks associated with its use. NICE CKS advises Minocycline is not recommended for use in acne as it is associated with an increased risk of adverse effects such as drug- induced lupus, skin pigmentation and hepatitis. This is currently under consultation. More details can be found on the NHS England website.
