cipro

my friend has today been told he has gonorrhea, his docter has prescribed one tablet of ciprofloxacin, can you tell us about this medicine and could gonorrhea be life threatening ? as you can immagine we are very concerned, .
No that will not work for chlamydia, and it might or might not work for gonorrhea. There are several resistant strains now.
The doctor give me ciprofloxacin 750 mg twice a day for 10 days. He try to find any discharge for testing but he cannot find any. He make a culture urine test. I did not receive the result. This is the 3rd day in treatment I didn't see any discharge but still have burn in my pines and under my abdominal. Is this the right Treatment? As I didn't see any discharge is this mean I'm cure from gonorrhea? Do I need to change the Medicine even if I don't have discharge only pain?

I had a discharge on my penis and was prescribed cipro for five days. After taking this for 2 days the discharge stopped and after finishing the course even the pain disappeared. My fear is that the infection might reoccure since im told cipro is not the best treatment for sti.
i took ciprofloxacin 500 twise a day for four days....now i think what if it was not gonorrhea....can these medecine have adverse effect if taken without prescription...
You need a shot of ceftriaxone at this point since you were never properly treated for gonorrhea. My advise at this point is - see a different provider than the one you've been seeing.
Yeah along with a 7 to 10 day course of Doxy for Chlamydia.
Discharge is cleared but lower abdominal pain en testicular pain still there! Today got ciprofloxacin perscribed for a week! Any info would be highly appreciated!!
The following drugs were prescribed the for me Ciprofloxacin. After using the drug for some days, the burning sensation stopped and the red swollen vanished. I continued to use the drugs until I comleted the dosage. Despite that the burning sensation and the red swelling vanished, I still have the thick white discharge from the tip of my penis till date. It is three months now and I still have this complaint. Please what is my fate? How do I get rid of this gonorrhea? Please help.
i forgot to tell my doctor that i was having anal sex too, and would just one pill get rid of gonorrhea or is there a different way to treat anal gonorrhea. i had all other test done as well which included hiv, clamydia, herpes, hpv ....etc and all were negative, i was wondering should i be worried about anal herpes or hpv but from what i read the symptoms from these shouldnt last as long as ive been having them, i am making another doctors appt.
Prescribed Ciprofloxacin for suspected chlamydia. The acne did not appear to be STD related...rather, simple folliculitis from all the new activity. I don't have test results yet, and symptoms have gotten worse...fever, sore throat, coated tongue, a couple of bad canker sores, swollen glands, a mild swelling of the foreskin and glans penis - especially at the urethral opening. Pain during urination has remained constant, despite antibiotics.
The symptoms (penile discharge, burning sensation, frequent need to urine) started about 3 days after the act and upon describing the symptoms to my Dr. he gave me i) Ciprofloxacin 500mg ii) Doxycycline Monohydrate 100mg twice a day for 2 weeks whilst refraining from doing any lab tests as he is not a specialist in STDs etc. Now my concern is that even though I have completed the 2 week medication, I still have symptoms, though on lesser scale compared to when they (symptoms) started.
I just wanted to see, in your opinion, if this makes sense and to see if I should wait on the Doxycycline until after I test for gonorrhea on Thursday? Thanks again, and my sincerest apologies for appearing as if I didn't appreciate the previous advice of you or Dr. Hook's- I certaily do appreciate it.
She sent the sample out for analysis for gonorrhea and chlamydia and also for culture. Should I have also requested a swab? She gave my Cipro, 500 mg for 3 days. You think Cipro is a good choice? Are the concerns about drug resistance valid? My other concern is there anything else I could have missed? Is it possible (5 days post exposure) that this is truly just irritation from abrasion and not what I'm afraid it might be? Wouldn't the penis have healed in this time?
The clear, scant nature of the discharge is good evidence you didn't have gonorrhea, for the reason you mention. However, either chlamydia or trichomonas could cause such mild symptoms. It would have been best to be examined and tested for STDs before being treated. At this juncture, you're never going to know for sure whether you were infected and, if so, with what.
The bactrim made me sick so I am now taking Ciprofloxacin 500mg. I have been taking this for 2 days. my symptoms are still there but a lot better then they where. I read that cipro can cure gonorrhea if I had it, is this true and when should I be back to normal???
Don`t wait. call now. Zithromax is effective for chlamydia but neither is first choice for gonorrhea.
Fluoroquinolones and cefixime are not being used due to increasing resistance. The current recommended treatment for gonorrhea is one injection of 250 mg ceftriaxone. This is combined with either a single oral dose of 1 g azithromycin or a week of taking 100 mg oral doxycycline twice a day. It is best to discuss this regime with your doctor and if he agrees start with it. Best luck and regards!

HIV: I thought i was being pretty careful, but now knowing he had gonorrhea of the throat and learning that HIV is more widespread in mexico, i am concerned i have been exposed. i am past the window for PEP. do u think there is a concern here?
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.

Welcome to the STD forum. Responding first to the opening comments, before getting to the specific questions: STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, etc do not travel through the body from one place to another. You cannot catch anything by oral sex that would then cause problems in the genital area. It is not possible your testicular pain or epididymitis -- if indeed you have epididymitis -- to have come from the sexual exposure you describe.
metronidazole for trichomonasis, azithromycin for Chlamydia, and ciprofloxacin for gonorrhea. (I should note that simultaneous with the treatment a urine sample was taken which came back negative for both Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, but this sample was taken only three days after my suspected exposure, so I was unsure if the test would be reliable). After the treatment, some of my symptoms went away, but I still had cramping in my bladder and burning during urination.
Saturday morning when I woke up the pain had gotten worse and I now I had discharge. I was treated Monday for both gonorrhea and chylamedia. I believe the act that infected me happened on Tuesday. I had sex with a partner that I have had sex with many times unprotected. Here is where I would like some clarification. Friday morning I had sex with my wife in the morning.
Ten days ago, I was diagnosed with Gonorrhea on a swab test at a sexual health clinic. I was treated with 400mg of ciprofloxacin as well as a seven day course of doxycycline for potential chlamydia. Almost immediately, the symptoms began to clear up (discharge, irritation). About seven days later (and after completing the doxycycline) I noticed the symptoms returning.
Thanks in advance for any assistance. I contracted gonorrhea here in Thailand and was put on a one time dose of ciprofloxacin (500 MG) and a week of doxycycline (twice daily 100 MG). While I am only on day 6, I see little or no improvement in condition (still have constant discharge). I have read that many strains here in Thailand have high resistance, and the doctor that I saw was unsure what to perscribe when I said I was allergic to pennicillon. Should I be concerned at lack of improvement.
The chance you have gonorrhea or chlamydia from this event is zero for all practical purposes. Let's discuss each of these STDs individually. Gonorrhea is a relatively uncommon STD in the US and is largely concentrated in especially high risk population groups Among most groups of sexually active women, well under 1% have gonorrhea. Of those who are infected, fewer than 10% have oral infection.
is it likely that I have std such as gonorrhea or chlamydia? If not, what other causes could there be? What are the odds of getting one of these stds by having protected sex? thanks for your help.
