You can give both. I would give one in the morning and one in the afternoon, if I were giving both. When giving Baytril, give the whole dose once daily. It has been found to be more effective that way. Also, it can sometimes cause yeast infection, so it is good to give Nystatin or similar also a couple of times daily while they are on Baytril. But you don't even know that he has Chlamydia. What tests did the vet do? What did he check?
How much Baytril are you giving?
The amounts of the meds are based on the bird's weight. Do you know what he weighs?

Yes Jay3 said its fine to give both medicines but give them at different times of the day, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. I'd see how she goes with the medicines before having a blood test, just be careful how you give them. Liquid meds I give by a small syringe (without needle of course) in the side of the beak right at the back of the tongue as near in her throat as possible because you don't want liquid going under her tongue and getting into that little air hole, otherwise it can go into her lungs. You can push the syringe a little at a time and not put it all in at once, I used to give three small plunges and let the bird swallow after each one. I hope she improves soon and thank you for all your care.

If it is Chlamydia, and he is treated for less than 45 days, then he could just get it back again when treatment is stopped. It's a hard one to get rid of. I would have the vet test for it first. That way you know whether or not you even need to put him through this. You will know what you are dealing with.

A test would let you know for sure what is going on. Hope the bird is all better soon!

If generally she isn't better would call the vet and ask them over the phone for an opinion about two meds. Hope she is all better soon. If it is chlamydia it may take a while to resolve.

With either Baytril or Doxy, the calcium should be pulled. It binds to the med and makes it less effective.

There are meds that when given, you wouldn't give him anything with calcium in it. It will bind to the drug and make it less effective. Grit can have calcium in it, vitamins, etc. You wouldn't give those until the treatment was finished.

Glad to hear she is doing better, would continue the treatment and keep her until she is completely well and stable.

I would give her more time, and finish the Baytril treatment. And give her some time to make sure she is stable. If you don't, then she will just go down hill again.
She needs time to recover.

Not really, Baytril can have an effect on it, just not as good as Doxy. I would wait till the treatment was complete, give her a while to gain some weight back and get stronger. That will also give you time to see if the eye thing comes back on her.
