Has anyone taken Doxycycline for RA? What was your experience with it?

Jarme, I agree with you but there have been studies saying people have found relief from Rheumatoid by using Doxycycline. I was so desperate I begged my Rheumy for it. She told me to go ahead and try it but I would be back asking for my biologic. She was right.

Isn't Doxycycline an Antibiotic? I haven't heard of that treating RA, might prevent infections, but I would think you body would get use to an antibiotic. Just my thoughts. Hugs.
