Can tetracycline and doxycycline be taken at the same time?

The reason I would be taking both is rather complicated. Back in 2006 I fell, fracturing my back from T1 to T10.  They put two rods and eight pins in my back. That was Dec 06. In January 07 It became infected requiring a second emergency surgery. The infectious disease Dr's put me on doxycycline 100mg  x 2 daily and told me I would probably be taking it for life. Thus I am always on doxycycline. In the meantime, I also have severe emphysema and COPD, Which means I have to take a lot of antibiotics. On this lst go around, I have been on Biaxin, and omnicef. Neither has worked, I have taken tetracycline in the past, so I though maybe it was worth a try. However if there's no advantage to taking both then I guess it's a mute point. I do however appreciate your response.
