Doxycycline is a tetracycline bacteriostatic antibiotic. It works by slowing or hampering the growth of bacteria and inhibits protein synthesis of the bacteria thus causing its death. Tetracyclines, including doxycycline, have a similar antimicrobial spectrum of activity against a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. Cross resistance of these organisms to tetracyclines is common.
