Moxifloxacin gonorrhea

Common Questions and Answers about Moxifloxacin gonorrhea

avelox

Will Moxifloxacin/Avelox help until I can get another prescription? Is Gonorrhea resistant to Moxifloxacin? I feel like my body is being overtaken and I am always tired. I slept with this woman last week, who swore she was clean. I really need to get a brain. This is just nasty.
It's more likely your symptoms are due entirely to recurrent or persistent prostate inflammation. Moxifloxacin is a quinolone antibiotic, like ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, and others. Gonorrhea resistant to the quinolones is spreading rapidly, especially in gay men. (You don't say the sex of your partner, so I don't know your orientation.) However, many strains remain susceptible. But I doubt you have gonorrhea, so it's probably not relevant.
Thanks for your reply AJ, After scouring the forums, I managed to find this post by H. Hunter Handsfield, M.D. "Moxifloxacin (trade name Avelox) most likely would be effective against gonorrhea, but it hasn't been studied. Also, gonorrhea resistant to that class of drugs (the fluoroquinolones) is on the rise. If you happen to be in Asia or a Pacific Rim country, or in Hawaii or California, you definitely should not rely on Avelox to prevent gonorrhea.
I was recently prescribed moxifloxacin for urethritis. I'm on pill no. 4 of 10. The medicine seems to work stopping discharge for about the whole day, however in the morning there's discharge, but not as much as before. Also, about 2 hrs. after taking moxifloxacin I get an intense burning sensation in the urethra ....is this a sign that the medicine is working? I have been treated for T.
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). I would not count on moxifloxacin for therapy of gonorrhea or chlamydial infection there are better drugs. (2) Avelox question on gonorrhea. I will be getting a Rocephin gonorrhea shot regardless, but am curious to know the following: Does Avelox have any efficacy against gonorrhea? See above.
Thanks for the thanks about the forum. Moxifloxacin (trade name Avelox) most likely would be effective against gonorrhea, but it hasn't been studied. Also, gonorrhea resistant to that class of drugs (the fluoroquinolones) is on the rise. If you happen to be in Asia or a Pacific Rim country, or in Hawaii or California, you definitely should not rely on Avelox to prevent gonorrhea. It should be highly effective against chlamydia. At this point, I do not think you need additional treatment.
Does anyone know what the cure rate of ceftriaxone 250 mg injection is for treating gonorrhea? Or the 400 mg pill of cifixime? I have been having issues for 5 months now and I have taken every antibiotic known to man and I am still having issues. Male Symptoms: Urethral pain " that comes and goes" occasional skanty clear discharge. Test taken: Gonorrhea and Chlamydia Clean but had take ammoxicilin days prior to test "False negative???
65 days ago I received 30s- 1 minute of fellatio from co-worker woman I do not know well. I'm VERY happily married and cut if off at that time, without orgasm. I am an ordinary looking guy and was caught by surprise. This has never happened to me before. 7 days after exposure, had mild burning, no discharge, normal looking urethra. 18 days after exposure, same thing, mild burning, no discharge, normal urethra.
When I called in for my results, I was informed that the tests both came back negative for chlamydia and gonorrhea. The doctor at the STD clinic prescribed me 400 mg of moxifloxacin for 7 days which I have not yet taken. (I'm concerned about the potential long term effects of fluoroquinolones so wanted a second opinion first.) I went in to see another doctor instead where I was prescribed doxycycline 100 mg for 7 days and given a shot of Ceftriaxone.
I went to the doctor and was tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea. The tests were negative but I was given a shot of rocephin and a prescription for 1000mg of Zithromax before the results came back. The pain in my urethra symptoms went away within 5-7 days but came back by day 13-14. I also developed pain in my hands and feet for a week or two after this treatment and a week or so of night sweats. The pain was mostly in my feet and was located in my arches and toe knuckles.
Would this do anything or cause a test error? Moxifloxacin could be curative for NGU and possibly gonorrhea if you had it. I doubt that you need it. 3. How long till the sanitizer issue take to settle? This just depends on how long it takes you to heal, Most people heal in a few days but I've seen some folks who take several weeks for the irritation to completely resolve. 4. What else should I keep an eye our for? ' I would not worry further. 5.
Some recent studies indicate that moxifloxacin (at 400 mg per day for 10 days) is useful against M. genitalium in these cases. Is this a reasonable next step? Are there culprits more likely than M. genitalium? I'm really in a bind with regard to getting good advice here. The Chinese doctors that I've talked to here, with all due respect, seem to just not know anything about anything.
No it does not sound like a STD, but I would have some basic testing like gonorrhea and chlamydia. I would also use condoms!!
There are a couple other antibiotics that can be prescribed if NGU is persistent, Erythromycine or Moxifloxacin. However, I would only use Moxifloxacin as a last resort, as it can have some very harsh and lasting side effects. In addition, if it's fungal related (Trich) they can also treat you with an alternative regimen of metronizadole. Return to your doctor and discuss persistent NGU with him and CDC guidelines for testing and treating: http://www.cdc.
When signs got more intense I went to see my GP who has prescribed me now 10 days of moxifloxacin. Am now on my second day. Symptoms have somewhat improved. NB: only protected sex in between these symptoms. My question would be: how likely is it that there would be still any bacteria left to bother me after this treatment? After all the antibiotics I have taken (or am taking right now). I wonder if I just have a recurrent inflammation? What to do if symptoms persist?
Thanks for your question. Your initial infection undoubtedly included both gonorrhea and nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). Most NGU responds to treatment with azithromycin, but some cases do not. When the problem persisted, you treated exactly as recommended, with a combination of doxycycline plus metronidazole (or tinidazole). Unfortunately, some cases of NGU continue to persist or recur after such treatment.
These organisms are frequently transfered at the same time as the better known STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia. Gonorrhea has a high cure rate of about 98% (except for resistant strains, where cipro might fail but cefiximine will nearly always work) and chlamydia 96-98%. Unfortunately cipro is still prescribed often for gonorrhea even though it is now recommended against as treatment in areas with high resistance (West coast, Hawaii). However mycoplasma recur about 20-60% of the time.

Be that as it may, with repeated treatments with both doxycycline and azithromycin, you may wish to talk to your doctor about a course of moxifloxacin. Your situation is a difficult one and moxifloxacin has proven to be effective against chlamydia, mycoplasma genitalium and gets into the prostate well. Hope this helps.
I was tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia. The doctor told me that I did not need to test for anything else based on my sexual history. (Only heterosexual sex, scandinavian females and no prostitutes). I was tested negative for gonorrhea but positive for chlamydia. I had upon that day not experienced much of symptoms except for maybe some slight tingeling sensation in my testcle. I was prescribed 1 g Zithromax again i took these on the 26th of july.
Hi, The urilogist did NOT come up with chlamydia, but with gonorrhea (clap). She said tests do not always find it in the culture and that symptoms of discharge, pain at tip of organ, difficulty in urinating and green-color urine indicates it might be that and that if the shot does not work we will continue with the evaluation. It is now 2 days plus a few hours after the shot. Not symptoms free yet *sigh* but this morning there was no discharge.
I was then treated with moxifloxacin (moxifloxacin 400 mg qd x 7) and cefixime (400 mg x 1). The previously mentioned symptoms persisted, as did intermittent aching in the groin and testicles. I also began experiencing some intermittent joint pain in hands and feet as well on the soles of my feet and my heel; occasionally, also redness and watering of the eyes.
By the way,I had been infected with Gonorrhea and other STD's in the past. I took the pills,but one week after I had the same symptons and was advised to retake this treatment.There was a little relief, but then again I had little watery penile discharge for the whole week and started to feel pain in my scrotum.I had chills,pain on my legs and abdomen.My scrotum got very swollen and it hurt a lot.
Your symptoms are highly suggestive of recurrent or persistent nongonococcal urethritis (NGU), which by definition isn't gonorrhea and is rarely caused by chlamydia -- so it isn't surprising your routine STD tests are negative. However, the only treatment you mention is doxycycline. Were no other treatments tried?
I have been tested for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphillis and HIV using urine and culture for the first 2 and blood for the last 2. All negative. I just got cultured for Genitalium the other day, Awaiting results. I've read that a longer course of Zithromax is more effective in treating Genitalium. 500 mg day one, and 250mg days 2-4. I'm wondering if I'm screwed now because I've already had single doses of Zithromax 1g twice and am now resistant to Zithromax.
) You had a virus, which is why Augmentin didn't work -- no antibiotics work against viruses. I also doubt the moxifloxacin (Avelox) didn't helpe either; most likely your symptoms were about to clear up on their own. To your specific questions: 1) No risk for HIV, as discussed above; and very low for other STDs as well. Oral gonorrhea is the major risk, but if you had that, your antibiotics cleared it up so no worries now. 2) See above re urine and female "ejaculate".
A couple of months ago he started complaining of pain while urinating so we both were tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea and the tests came back negative. A week later I went to my gynecologist who ordered some more tests and came back positive for ureaplasma urealyticum. The doctor prescribed azithromycin and two and a half weeks weeks after finishing the treatment, a new test for ureaplasma came back positive again.
I too have prostatitis. I had an exposure about 5 months ago and I was diagnosed with gonorrhea and treated right away. I was tested for all stds (hiv, hepb, hepc, gonn/chlam, hsvI, hsvII) at 7 weeks and again at 13 weeks, and my results were negative. I took a bunch of antibiotics for my prostatitis, and none of them helped. Doc says i have nonbacterial prostatitis. My point: 1) Prostatitis has NOTHING to do with HIV 2) Are you sure you have bacterial prostatitis?

And as auntiejessie told you on the other forum, you were unlikely to acquire either infection from the more recent condom-protected exposure. Moxifloxacin (Avelox) could make tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia falsely negative. Most likely it wouldn't do that, since the standard tests look for DNA from the chlamydia or gonorrhea bacteria, and can remain positive for a few days even after the organisms themselves have been killed.
