Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

Do you mean Doxycycline(Tabocine)? Which type of arthritis? Give more details and the history.

Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 1 year ago.

Dear customer,

Thanks for your reply.

Basically this medication is moderately effective in the treatment of early rheumatoid arthritis and is used less frequently as a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). Regarding its usage as a disease modifying osteoarthritis drug, it is not used frequently, however some trials and studies have shown that doxycycline may slow the radiographic progression in some patients.

Take care.
