I am allergic to azithromycin and clindamycin
No. Doxycycline is a tetracycline which binds to the 30s unit in mRNA translation to inhibit formation of the initiation complex resulting in no translation.
However, the function of clindamycin and azithromycin is similar in terms of working on the 50s subunit.
In the end, both of them prevent bacterial protein formation but work on a different part of the enzyme. If you have allergies, you should consult your physician, despite halting bacterial protein production, it can be that you are allergic to one and not the other.
I hope that helps.
