In addition, 105 mg and 135 mg tablets contain the following inactive ingredients: ethyl cellulose NF, hypromellose USP, isopropyl alcohol USP, microcrystalline cellulose NF, polyethylene glycol 400 NF, purified water USP, silicified microcrystalline cellulose NF, sodium stearyl fumarate NF, talc USP, triethyl citrate NF.

How should I use Minolira?

MINOLIRA is indicated to treat the inflammatory lesions of non-nodular moderate to severe acne vulgaris in patients 12 years of age and older.  

Limitations of Use

This formulation of minocycline has not been evaluated in the treatment of infections.  

To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria as well as to maintain the effectiveness of other antibacterial drugs, MINOLIRA should be used only as indicated 

The recommended dosage of MINOLIRA is approximately 1 mg/kg once daily for 12 weeks. Higher doses have not shown to be of additional benefit in the treatment of inflammatory lesions of acne, and may be associated with more acute vestibular side effects. The 105 mg and 135 mg tablets may be split on the score line for dosing of patient weight ranges of 45-59 kg and 60-89 kg, respectively (see Table 1).

Table 1: Dosing Table for MINOLIRA

MINOLIRA may be taken with or without food . Ingestion of food along with MINOLIRA may help reduce the risk of esophageal irritation and ulceration. MINOLIRA tablets should not be chewed or crushed.  

In patients with renal impairment, the total dosage should be decreased by either reducing the recommended individual doses and/or by extending the time intervals between doses
