Should be OK...: Fortunately Doxycycline does not have too many drug interactions and should not interfere or be significantly affected by your use of the supplement described in your question. But like all else, unexpected reaction can occur and so if you experience any significant symptoms, consult doc. Good luck.

Safe: But a waste of money. If doxycycline works for you continue. For adult women, menstrual patterns and exact details of any birth control are central. 90% of women have better results with spironolactone, which is also better tolerated and safer. Biotin and Vit C are totally useless waste of money.
