Yes, in fact this is wise if you have an infection as vitamins support your immune system.But one shouldn't take tetracycline or Doxycycline at the same time as multivits, calcium, magnesium or zinc-they should be taken at least 2 hours apart.High doses of vit. C may increase levels of tetracycline/doxycycline but this could help them work better.Vits have no know interactions with other antibiotics.
