Rated Vibramicina (Oracea, Doryx) for Upper Respiratory Tract Infection Report
Let me start by saying I take reviews on sites like this with a major grain of salt. As with most things in life, people tend to write reviews about bad experiences or products, and not as much for the good ones. That said, my two experiences with this have been just fine. It eliminated the infection both times and my side effects were very minimal compared to what I’m reading here. I did notice a sense of increased tiredness and lethargy, and some head pressure. However, I also believe many people forget that they are taking medications because of an illness or issue, and sometime the symptoms being reported are symptoms of the illness itself. I do not doubt what others are posting at all. I’m sure they have experienced these unpleasant effects from their illnesses and potentially the medications used to treat them. But I do think it’s important to have balanced reviews that it does not negatively impact everyone, and that not everyone should run away from this medication as some suggest.
Use of tetracyclines during tooth development (last half of pregnancy through age 8 years) can cause permanent discoloration of teeth; use Vibramicina in pediatric patients 8 years of age or less only when potential benefits expected to outweigh risks in severe or life-threatening conditions (eg, anthrax, Rocky Mountain spotted fever); particularly when there are no alternative therapies
Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea (CDAD) has been reported with use of nearly all antibacterial agents, and may range in severity from mild diarrhea to fatal colitis
Photosensitivity manifested by an exaggerated sunburn reaction has been observed in some individuals taking tetracyclines
May result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. If such infections occur, discontinue use and institute appropriate therapy
Severe skin reactions, such as exfoliative dermatitis, erythema multiforme, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis, and drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) reported; if severe skin reactions occur, discontinue therapy immediately and institute appropriate therapy
Intracranial hypertension (pseudotumor cerebri) reported (rare) may occur; symptoms include headache, blurred vision, diplopia, and vision loss; papilledema can be found on funduscopy; women of childbearing age who are overweight or have a history of IH are at greater risk; possibility for permanent visual loss exists; if visual disturbance occurs during treatment, prompt ophthalmologic evaluation is warranted; intracranial pressure can remain elevated for weeks after drug cessation; monitor until they stabilize
All tetracyclines form a stable calcium complex in any bone-forming tissue; decrease in fibula growth rate has been observed in prematures given an oral tetracycline; reaction was shown to be reversible when the drug was discontinue
Antianabolic action of the tetracyclines may cause an increase in BUN; studies to date indicate that this does not occur with the use of Vibramicina in patients with impaired renal function
Vibramicina offers substantial but not complete suppression of the asexual blood stages of Plasmodium strains
Prescribing Vibramicina in the absence of a proven or strongly suspected bacterial infection or a prophylactic indication is unlikely to provide benefit to the patient and increases the risk of the development of drug-resistant bacteria
In long-term therapy, periodic laboratory evaluation of organ systems, including hematopoietic, perform renal and hepatic studies
Not studied in pregnant patients; the vast majority of reported experience with Vibramicina during human pregnancy is short-term, first trimester exposure; there are no human data available to assess effects of long-term therapy of Vibramicina in pregnant women, such as that proposed for treatment of anthrax exposure; it should not be used in pregnant women unless, in judgment of physician, it is essential for welfare of patient; evidence of embryotoxicity has been noted in animals treated early in pregnancy
How should I take Vibramicina?
Follow all directions on your prescription label. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.
Take Vibramicina with a full glass of water. Drink plenty of liquids while you are taking Vibramicina.
Most brands of doxycyline may be taken with food or milk if the medicine upsets your stomach. Different brands of Vibramicina may have different instructions about taking them with or without food.
Take Oracea on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal.
You may open a Doryx capsule or break up a Doryx tablet and sprinkle the medicine into a spoonful of applesauce to make swallowing easier. Swallow right away without chewing. Do not save the mixture for later use. Drink a full glass (8 ounces) of cool water right away.
Do not crush, break, or open a delayed-release capsule or tablet. Swallow the pill whole.
You may need to split the Acticlate tablet to get the correct dose. The tablet is scored so you can break it apart easily.

If you take Vibramicina to prevent malaria: Start taking the medicine 1 or 2 days before entering an area where malaria is common. Continue taking the medicine every day during your stay and for at least 4 weeks after you leave the area. Use protective clothing, insect repellents, and mosquito netting around your bed to further prevent mosquito bites that could cause malaria.
Use this medicine for the full prescribed length of time. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. Skipping doses may also increase your risk of further infection that is resistant to antibiotics. Vibramicina will not treat a viral infection such as the flu or a common cold.
If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using Vibramicina.
Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.
Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date on the label has passed. Using expired Vibramicina can cause damage to your kidneys.
