I didn't deserve to get this and neither did my partner someone gave it to me before my current relationship....don't trust just anyone with your body!
Avatar n tn This study concluded that azithromycin 1g single dose was quite effective in curing gonorrhea. "This paper describes the efficacy of azithromycin 1g single dose in the management of uncomplicated gonorrhoea either with or without chlamydial co-infection. Three hundred and one patients were treated for gonorrhoea between January 2000 and June 2001; 226/301 (75.1%) were treated with azithromycin 1g stat dose while the rest were treated with different regimens. Ninety-seven of 301 (32.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn Hi, My partner was given Chlamydia treatment last week and I was told I should take the same so I did (1g Azithromycin). The tests aren't actually back until the end of this week and I am concerned that it is actually Gonorrhea as I am sometimes itchy externally and was a little itchy internally but caneston relieved that for a while. My bum is also occasionally itchy but preparation has helped relieve that.
Avatar f tn so my boyfriend and i have been diagnosed with oral gonorrhea, and are for various reasons unable to take the intra-muscular shot, and so we have been recommended to take 800mg cefixime + 1g azithromycin (standard alternative in Canada) PLUS an additional 1g azithromycin because 2g azithromycin is relatively effective against oral gonorrhea. has anyone heard of this alternative oral treatment for oral gonorrhea? is it likely to be effective?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn He didnt have symptoms but I did. He was advised to take 1g azithromycin single dose. When I went for my 3rd check up, the doc wasnt there. And I had to go out of town so I got azithromycin (zithromax) two tablets 500mg taken as a single dose. For the next couple of days I noticed that the purulent discharge started to clear up Almost gone in fact. But then I had my period for 6 days. 12 days after taking Azithromycin (Today) I felt something leaked out of me.
Avatar n tn 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).
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar m tn Diagnostics showed that I have a chlamydia infection, but did not show gonorrhea. (NAAT test) I received 1g azithromycin 5 days ago. I was having a milky discharge and fair bit of irritation felt throughout the day in my penis too. The milky white discharge disappeared, as has almost all irritation felt during the day. I still feel a little unusual / discomfort when urinating; not pain, but not quite normal yet. And each morning I can still milk a little pus out of my penis.
Avatar m tn Following up on my symtoms for your knowledge and information. It turned out to be internal hemorrhoids. No one could guess what it was. All urologists I went thought everything else except this. What can I say?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn Ceftriaxone 500mg im stat (make up with 2ml lignocaine 1% or as per data sheet) plus azithromycin 1g. How much azithromycin should be the recommended dose to definitely eradicate chlamydia? What is an im stat? Thankyou.

Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar m tn I had gonorrhea (most of of the symptoms like discharge, mild flu symptoms itch and burning sensation) and took 1g for azithromycin and 400mg of cefixime and a week later the symptoms went away, what are the chances that I'm cured? And would that treatment work if I had chlamydia. Thanks guys.
Avatar n tn 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...
Avatar n tn 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).
Avatar f tn The day I found out I went to a clinic and received a shot in my buttocks of ceftriaxone and 1g azithromycin. I was advised to wait 7 days for any kind of sexual contact. But.... it did happen. 2 questions 1) how long after receiving the antibiotics am I do longer able to transmit the infection? I see different answers on this forum. 2) I did have protected sex with a condom 48 hours after receiving antibiotics. I still have a little tingle in the tip of my penis.
