g for reassurance to know that as long as you follow the guidelines by your healthcare provider and change your ways everything will be okay. My partner and I were treated with 1g azithromycin and abstained for 10 days....and I'm negative still 7 months later! negative!

This study concluded that azithromycin 1g single dose was quite effective in curing gonorrhea.

Since i've read that curing gonorrhea requires a 2g single dose of azithromycin, i probably should retreat for gonorrhea at some point in the future. How long should i wait until i attempt to retreat? Im handling the 1g dose ok...just some painful tenderness in my lower stomach.
I recently had unprotected sex and got emperic treatment after i felt some pain on urination. I took 1g of azithromycin and 400mg of suprax. About 30hrs after treatment I had unprotected sex with another partner...like an idiot!! I know that gonorrhea is almost always eradicted within 24hrs post treatment (http://jcm.asm.org/cgi/reprint/40/10/3596.pdf). I was wondering how long it realy take to eradicate chlamydia.
Suspecting it as gonorrhea (thru reading the net), I self medicated with doxycycline 100mg taken twice for 7 days. The discharge was gone after 4 days (continued the medication till the 7th day). I never had sex with anybody during these period. Aug. 31, 2012 I had protected sex with my girlfriend and after 6 days, discharge from my organ showed up again. So I finally decided to go to a doctor to have it checked.
It’s been exactly four days; today I took 1.5g of azithromycin as a preventive measure against Chlamydia and maybe gonorrhea and syphilis. I just needed to stop freaking out even though I haven’t developed any symptoms. I know I should be safe about Chlamydia but I’m not so sure about the other two. I also made the mistake of taking the first gram in the morning (on an empty stomach) and taking the remaining half gram in the early evening (4h after lunch).
Would it be unadvisable for me to start the course with a 1g of Azithromycin and then finish the course as normal to be on the safe side?
if negative, you can be sure you don't have it and there's no need for treatment. Second, the efficacy of azithromycin in a 2 g dose for gonorrhea depends on taking the entire dose at once. Taking a second 1 g dose a day later will be no more effective. Finally, in the very unlikely chance you also have gonorrhea, 1 g of azithromycin probably would sufficient, over 90% reliable. The higher dose is recommended more as a safety factor, not because it's all that much more effective.
I have been diagnosed 1g of Azithromycin to treat suspected gonnorhea. I know other treatments are recommended but this is what I have been given. If I just take this, will the gonorrhea clear?
I have some left over ciprofloxacin 500 mg. would I need to take another 1g of azithromycin + cipro 500 mg single dose, or just cipro. I have not had sex since taking original dosage of azithromycin. I know I should go see a doctor. I already know that. I'm choosing not too.
It usually takes at least a week for symptoms to show up. Such isn't the case for gonorrhea, where symptoms can show up as short as two days. Although negative WBC may indicate that your urine is not infected, it doesn't necessarily tell you if you have been infected with gonorrhea or chlamydia. However, if you were infected with chlamydia, a 1gm dose of zithromax would have cleared it up, which you took on the second day. 2) Your symptoms can be due to her yeast infection.
0 gram dose of azithromycin will cure gonorrhea. Given your limited access to medications, my advice would be for you to seek therapy with doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 14 days. This is the recommended alternate therapy for treatment of early syphilis. If you have gonorrhea you could take either the azithromycin as a single 2.0 gram dose or cefixime.
i just found out i have chlamydia and they gave me four 250mg pills of azithromycin on the bottle it said to take them all at once for a 1g dosage. the first day i had the pills i read it wrong and thought it said take one a day for 4 days so i took 1 yesterday but realized i took the wrong dosage and took the other 3 today. do you think that it will still work in getting rid of it or should i get another prescription?
Hi Dr., I had an encounter in early 2007 whereby I got either chlamydia or gonorrhea. I returned to my home country thereafter. 10 days after exposure, I started having penile pain & discharge along with frequent urination & burning feet/hands.The doctor gave me Azithromycin(1g), Doxy for a week, followed by Augmentin for a week. I was tested for VDRL-RPR, Urinalysis(numerous WBC's & 2+ Bacteria), Urine Culture(no growth), Chlamydia antigen(neg), Hep Panel, HIV, TPHA, HSV1, HSV2.
Dear Doctor I finally got my results back and I was negative for Gonorrhea and positive for Chlamydia. I assume that the Azithromycin 1g would have cured me with relatively high success rate. Given that I had green discharge from my penis (usually associated with Gonorrhea), should I be suspicious that I was negative or is it common to have green discharge from Chlamydia? My initial test was urine sample and swab.

it is well known that chlamydia and gonorrhea co exist and about 50% of people who get one have the chance of getting the other aswell,then why is it that for chlamidia infections the medical books recommend just the treatment for chlamydia ie azithromycin 1 g as one dose w/o treatment for gonorrhea , while for people infected with gonorrhea it is recommended a dual treatment for chlamydia aswell ie:azithromycin 1g and rocefin IM .my question is why is that?
I just called in for my urine results and it's chlomydia. i did websearches and ppl say a few days :s maybe i was squeezing too much heh...
Avelox (moxifloxacin) has not been well studied for treatment of chlamydial infection and is not recommended for gonorrhea therapy. It may well be effective for either or both infections but there are not sufficient data to provide a confident answer. If you were taking moxifloxacin when you were exposed, it would substantially reduce your risk for infection (infections are easier to prevent than to cure once established).
So I took 1g of Azithromycin (about 10 days ago). Some of the watery discharge went away. But a "drip, drip" kind of clear watery (it is not white or yellowish) discharge remains. It smells a bit. I also seem to have rectal infection as there is itchy feeling and I go to the toilet 4-5 times a day. I also seem to have a bit conjunctivitis in both my eyes. And now I have mysterious pain/inflammation in my right knee and left ankle.
Do you think he is doing the right thing? Also i have heard the recommended treatment for gonorrhea is now dual medicine treatment in which (Ceftriaxone 250 mg IM + Azithromycin 1g in a single dose) should be given. Should i talk to my doctor about this recommended treatment?
I had a swab, plate culture, and urine test for chlamydia and gonorrhea, both of which came back negative. However, trace amounts of white blood cells were detected. As a precaution, I was given 1 one day dose of 1G azithromycin that day, a follow up of two 500 mg doses of azithromycin, and after that a four day course of levofloxacin 2 g total) and told to abstain for a week. Well, like a complete dummy (as if I haven't been dumb enough!
Greetings Doctor, I am a male in my late 20s. One week ago I received unprotected oral sex from a female friend. Three days later I developed a constant burning sensation in my urethra and experienced painful burning while urinating. I immediately went to my local planned parenthood to seek testing for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. Because the clinician said I was "symptomatic", I was prescribed a 1g course of Azithromycin to treat what she suggested as a probable Chlamydia infection.
Even if they do not do it, your health department should be able to tell you where you can have a swab test for both gonorrhea and chlamydial infection of the throat (they are typically done off the same swab) As you point out testing your urine (penis) for a throat infection makes no sense. Azithromycin (Zithromax could cure both gonorrhea as well as chlamydia but the recommended doe for gonorrhea is higher than for chlamydia. 2.0 grams as a single dose rather than just 1 gram.
A couple related questions. If I took 1g Azithromycin as treatment for Chlamydia, would that also cure Gonorrhea or is a different antibiotic necessary? Secondly, since Azithromycin is a 1 time treatment, suppose someone (cough) went out and got completely trashed the evening after taking Azithroycin and they day after (with no regurgitation of any kind)... Could this affect treatment? a.k.a. not kill all Chlamydia bacteria allowing the infection to slowly reappear? Gracias.
on the tip of the head, Then a few months ago, i self medicated w/ *1g ceftriaxone IM, and #4 azithromycin twice a day for 2 days... then after a couple of month,, I had intercourse,,, and unluckily I feel that I got a bonus again. and the ulceration continued again. so after a few weeks, I decided to take ciprobay and doxycycline 2x/day for 7days. on the 5th day we had intercourse w/condoms. after the medication, my girlfriend is now feeling painful urination.
Hi doctor, I am afraid of catching Chlamydia and gonorrhea for a long time and not know it since it is almost always asymptomatic. First of all, I would like to tell you that I have never been to std testing until two days ago, because my fiance wanted to do the test before getting married later in the summer. I have read a lot of scary things about those infections. I never had symptoms and as you know, the culture is, no symptoms, no check ups.
