Description

Vibramycin-D contains the active substance doxycycline as doxycycline monohydrate. Vibramycin-D is
an antibiotic belonging to a group of medicines called tetracyclines. It is used to treat many different types of infections including:


• Chest, lung or nasal infections e.g. bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis
• Urinary tract infections (the passage through which urine passes) e.g. cystitis, urethritis
• Acne (a skin condition)
• Eye infections
• Sexually transmitted diseases e.g. gonorrhoea, syphilis, chlamydia
• Fevers associated with louse or tick bites
• Malaria, when chloroquine is not effective

Vibramycin-D is also used to prevent certain infections developing, these are scrub typhus (a disease
carried by small insects) Rocky Mountain spotted fever, travellers’ diarrhoea, malaria and leptospirosis (a
bacterial infection).

Your doctor may want you to take Vibramycin-D to treat another infection not listed above. You may also
be prescribed an additional medicine to take with Vibramycin-D to treat your infection. You must talk to
your doctor if you do not feel better or if you feel worse.

Warnings

Do not take Vibramycin-D:


• if you are allergic to doxycycline or any other tetracycline antibiotic or any of the other
ingredients of this medicine 
• if you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant
• if you are breast feeding

You should not use Vibramycin-D during periods of tooth development (pregnancy, infancy or in children
below 8 years old) as such use may lead to permanent discolouration (yellow-grey-brown).

There may be circumstances (e.g. severe or life-threatening conditions), where your physician may decide
that the benefits outweigh this risk in children below 8 years and Vibramycin-D should be prescribed.

 

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Vibramycin-D if any of the following apply to you:
• you are likely to be exposed to strong sunlight or uv light (e.g. on a sun bed). You should avoid exposure to strong sunlight while taking this medicine as your skin may be more sensitive to sunburn than normal.
• you have kidney or liver problems.
• you have myasthenia gravis (a disease which causes unusual tiredness and weakness of certain muscles, particularly in the eyelid).
• you have an immune system disease that causes joint pain, skin rashes and fever (systemic lupus erythematosus). The condition may be worsened by taking Vibramycin-D.
• you have porphyria (a rare disease of blood pigments).
• you have (or have ever had) systemic lupus erythematosus (an allergic condition that causes joint pain, skin rashes and fever).This condition may be worsened by taking Vibramycin-D.
• you are suspected as having syphilis. Your doctor will continue to monitor you after your treatment has stopped.
• you have diarrhoea or usually get diarrhoea when you take antibiotics or have suffered from problems with your stomach or intestines. If you develop severe or prolonged or bloody diarrhoea during or after using Vibramycin-D tell your doctor immediately since it may be necessary to interrupt the treatment. This may be a sign of bowel inflammation (pseudomembranous colitis) which can occur following treatment with antibiotics.
• you are taking oral retinoids as there is a higher risk of suffering from increased pressure in your skull (severe headache with change in vision) when taken with Vibramycin-D.

When used for a long duration, Vibramycin-D may cause infections that cannot be treated with this
antibiotic. Your doctor can explain the signs and symptoms of such types of infection.

doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
