Brief Answer: NO Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for trusting us with your health query. Doxycycline does not slow down the progression of osteoarthritis. Doxycycline is an antibiotic that is mainly used to treat bacteria infections. If you want a medication to slow down osteoarthritis, I will suggest that you get consulted, examined and do some imaging studies by your doctor to make an informed decision on this.
