What for?: Don't know why UR asking. Of course U can take any of these antibiotics for appropriate indications provided UR not allergic to any of them. There is cross reactivity between Doxycycline & tetracycline, but not with erthromycin.

Yes: Yes, they are in two different classes of antibiotics, so that should be fine.
