As far as I know and have been told, the only problem that could arise with taking one of the tetracycline derivatives and consuming a lot of alcohol at the same time is the effect it'll have on your liver. It wasn't made to take that kind of abuse.

"Elimination of the bacteriostatics tetracycline and doxycycline was compared in patients on long-term alcohol consumption to that in healthy controls. The half-life of doxycycline but not that of tetracycline was significantly shorter in alcoholics than in controls and in some patients the serum concentration of doxycycline decreased below the generally accepted minimum therapeutic concentration when dosed once daily. So, the dosing twice daily might be indicated especially if additional inducing drugs are used."

There is no danger or hazard when taking doxycycline with alcohol. However, you are correct when consuming large quantities of alcohol mixed with doxycycline will most certainly reduce the effectiveness of the drug. A more detailed explanation to your question can be found at:
