Thanks for your query.

Yes, you can take the course of Nimesulide when on Doxycycline.

There is no reported interaction between above two drugs.But do keep a gap of 2 hours between both the drugs and its better to take Doxycycline first when both are planned to be taken the same time.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
