Minocycline & Mass Gainer (Protein Shakes)

Patient

Q: Hello Doctors, recently I went to the dermatologist and he prescribed me Minocycline (100MG) to take twice a day for my acne. One pill at night and another in the morning with a meal. I work out frequently and I take 4 oz's of Optimum Nutrition's Serious Mass powder combined with water for a shake after every workout. Will this medicine interfere with my weight gain/workouts? Should I not take the medicine with or in any certain time frame of drinking my shakes? Do I have to stop taking my protein shakes while taking this medicine? Any hazards? Please let me know.
