Generic Vibramycin is a cheaper version of Vibramycin, a very effective and trusted antibiotic medicine. Generic and brand name Vibramycin have identical active ingredient doxycycline, and doxycycline will produce the same therapeutic effect as the brand name drug. Generic medications can usually be purchased for a fraction of the cost of their branded counterparts. Because generic medications are often much cheaper than their branded counterparts, many people choose buying generic medications online, and many insurance companies actually require that they be used. The combination of generic substitutions and reference pricing would give patients an incentive to choose the cheapest product, while helping them avoid unnecessary costs.

Generic Vibramycin (doxycycline monohydrate) is a synthetic (man-made) antibiotic derived from tetracycline. Doxycycline works by interrupting the production of proteins by bacteria. It is effective against a wide variety of bacteria, such as Hemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Chlamydia psittaci, Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoea, and many others. Vibramycin may be used to aid medicines such as amoebicides used to treat parasites.

Why is Generic Vibramycin prescribed?

Generic Vibramycin is used to treat bacterial infections, including pneumonia and other respiratory tract infections, Lyme disease, acne, infections of skin, genital, and urinary systems, and anthrax (after inhalational exposure). It is also used to prevent malaria. Doxycycline is in a class of medications called tetracycline antibiotics. It works by preventing the growth and spread of bacteria. Antibiotics will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections.
