Kinda: Aside from being an antibiotic, doxycycline does have some anti-inflammatory properties as well. Should not be used strictly as an antiinflammatory medication, however.

No: Doxycycline is an antibiotic. If you are treating a bacterial infection it will reduce the inflammation in the affected area only. It is NOT considered and anti-inflammatory.

Atridox - antibiotic: It is not an anti-inflammatory agent. It's Rx'd for bacterial infections of a wide range and sometimes acne, even malaria. Here's some info: http://www.eurodrugstore.eu/antibiotic__32__en/atridox__826.html Hope it helps.
