Vibramycin is an oral capsule made up of a tetracycline antibiotic called doxycycline. We carry the generic alternative of Vibramycin in 50mg and 100mg!
Vibramycin is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections, such as acne, urinary tract infections, intestinal infections, respiratory infections, eye infections, gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and periodontitis (gum disease). Bacterial infections are caused by bacteria, a relatively complex, single-celled creature. They often have a rigid wall and a thin, rubbery membrane surrounding the fluid inside the cell and are capable of reproducing on their own. Bacterial infections may cause short-lived infections (such as food poisoning), chronic infections that last weeks, months, or a lifetime (such as chronic gastritis), and latent infections, which may not show symptoms at first but may later on in life (such as latent tuberculosis). The symptoms of bacterial infections may vary depending on the location of the infection and the type; however, some general symptoms of bacterial infections include headache, stiff neck, fever, nausea or vomiting, confusion, or sensitivity to light.
Vibramycin (doxycycline) is effective at treating bacterial infections because this drug is able to stop the growth of bacteria inside the body to allow the immune system to fight the infection off more easily and much quicker.
Take Vibramycin (doxycycline) exactly the way your doctor has directed you too. It is important to follow directions given by your doctor to not only avoid adverse interactions and side effects but also to allow for the most effective dose to prevent/treat Vibramycin (doxycycline). If you forget how your doctor would like you to take Vibramycin (doxycycline), you may be able to find instructions on the prescription bottle.
