Tapering off Doxycycline

Hi,
My dermatologist just told me to start taking Bactrim instead of doxycycline, and to just stop doxy cold. I, however, feel that I should be tapering off the doxycycline as I start the Bactrim, taking them together and gradually reducing the amount of doxycycline I take per week. Is this the right thing to do?
