I was wondering how many of you have tried treating RA with antibiotics? Also what were your results? I've been reading alot lately on treating ra with this, particurally with minocycline. There haven't been a lot of studies done but the ones that were done had very promising results. Any thoughts?

Dear amy62528,

I hope one of our members will be able to share their experience with you. Until then, I have an article on RA and Minocycline that may be interesting.

Yours in health,

Byroney
