Were you looking for information on Vibramycin? Vibramicin is a common misspelling of Vibramycin.
Vibramycin® (doxycycline) is an antibiotic that healthcare providers may prescribe to treat or prevent certain types of bacterial infections, such as acne, anthrax, and malaria. The medication is part of a class of drugs called tetracyclines, and it works by decreasing bacteria's ability to make protein (which it needs to live). The drug is available in the form of capsules or an oral suspension (liquid), and is usually taken once or twice a day. Side effects can include diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
