> That's an interesting question. Minocycline and doxycycline are thought to have certain anti-inflammatory effects, as well as being active against a wide range of micro-organisms.

For Lyme, I think doxycycline would be the better drug to try first. Although minocycline makes it into the brain more readily, it also has the potential to produce hyperpigmentation as a side effect.

Minocycline decreases glutamate and excitotoxicity. I don't know if doxycycline does this. Earlier work indicated that minocycline helped with schizophrenia. I haven't sufficiently researched more recent findings.
