Apparently, vertigo is much more common in women, and can be quite severe, so it makes sense to choose doxycycline instead. I do agree with this, but I think it's important to retain minocycline as an option.

I can't remember the dosage of minocycline I was on, but it took over a year for hyperpigmentation to develop.
