Amoxicillin for chlamydia dosage

Common Questions and Answers about Amoxicillin for chlamydia dosage


Avatar f tn I just got done with a prescription for 875 mg of amoxicillin twice a day for 10 days. Will that cure chlamydia and gonorrhea??
Avatar m tn Would 1 gram, 3x daily (3 grams daily) of Amoxicillin for 10 days kill Chlamydia and Gonnorea? What other conditions might cause a pinching sensation and a slight red discloration at the tip of my penis?
Avatar n tn I did find this, and its for pregnant women - Amoxicillin Amoxicillin belongs to a group of antibiotics called pencillins. Amoxicillin is a recommended treatment of Chlamydia infection during pregnancy by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, it is not the best antibiotic for eradication of Chlamydia in other categories of people. Augmentin is amoxicillin clavulanate, so its similar. Have you been diagnosed with chlamydia?
Avatar m tn g., gonorrhea, syphilis) and virtually zero for others (e.g., chlamydia). Your med student friend has some learning to do about STDs. I wouldn't have recommended any antibiotic treatment at all; and amoxicillin is a poor choice for STD prevention. What to do now? The risk of any STD was sufficiently low that I really don't recommend anything, assuming you don't develop symptoms like penile blsiters or open sores, or discharge of pus or mucus from your penis.
Avatar n tn I am scared out of my mind as one would imagine, I'm wondering if it could be herpes that I contracted along with the chlamydia? Or perhaps the dosage hasn't killed the chlamydia completely... I am allergic to penicillin and amoxicillin and have a great immune system, I usually one get sick a few times a year... Could my body have rejected the antibiotics?
Avatar m tn I just finished taking a treatment of azithromycin (took 3 g in a span of 5-6 days[missed a day] so it was about 500 mg day)(I'm Male). I was first treated for just gonorrhea by itself with amoxicillin and probenecid, but the symptoms continued so i received the Azithromycin treatment next. Finished my last dosage on thursday Oct.8, I feel like have blue balls, and the tip of my penis seems red and kinda itchy, i have pain urinating sometimes though i think. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn so since then everytime my spouse complains about something around her vaginal I thing could I have given her gonorrhea or chlamydia. I have been checked for HIV (neg). Also since then (over the last 5.5 years) both of us have been on antibiotics like levaquin, amoxicillin, and zothomax. my questions: If I had discharge from my penis due to an std would that be obvious? (the discharge) Can chlamydia or gonorrhea stay in your body for 5.
Avatar n tn Amoxicillin may have a beneficial effect on some gonorrhea but is no longer recommended for STD treatment as failures are relatively common. On the other hand, the azithromycin you took is in the dosage appropriate for treatment of chlamydia and NGU, the two most common forms of urethritis and would be expected to cure about 70% of gonorrhea. Following treatment, the response is often gradual with irritation and discomfort diminishing progressively.
Avatar m tn To that end, I suggest that to be completely sure you seek evaluation by a knowledgeable clinician who can evaluate you for these problems at least 6-7 days after your last dose of amoxicillin. I hope my comments are helpful.
Avatar n tn I also had a pack of Azithromycin, for which I started that very night. When that was finished I began a 10 day dosage of 3 pills per day of amoxicillin 500mg. During the past few days, I have also had a pretty bad respiratory infection. My questions: IF I contracted something, would the antibiotics taken have eliminated any treatable STDs? Could they return on their own?
Avatar m tn Erythromycin is as effective as azithromycin for chlamydia an NGU when take as 500 mg 4 times daily for 7 days, as is recommended. There are no data to indicate how well twice daily dosing for five days would work. The utility of this regimen for gonorrhea is certainly less than 90%. How much less is hard to know.
Avatar m tn Test results came back, the usual PSA, Creatinne, A1C, Uric Acid all within normal, of course LDL 178, HDL 52, Cholesterol 258 Then I also had a week’s supply of Amoxicillin, which I took also, why not it can’t kill me right, the week goes by and then I go see my regular doctor again, he is not real happy with me, actually asks if I tell you that you do not have an STD will you get better instantly, I said I can assure you this is not in my head, so he asks what do you want me to test you f
Avatar m tn Apart from the antibiotics taken as mentioned in earlier post, I had Vibramycin at 94 days after the exposure, given for some pimples, dosage 5 days. And, finally at 143 days after the exposure, again I was given Vibramycin for 5 days for sore throat. As mentioned in previous post, I have taken VDRL Test at 85 days after exposure (before Vibramycins), result non-reactive, so the Vibramycins couldn't have affected the test. I know that you do not like 'what-ifs' questions.
Avatar n tn Urine test negative for bacteria, positive for blood (though no blood visible to naked eye). Urine and culture tests for gonnorhea and chlamydia are negative. After 1 week the testicular pain is much more pronounced (a bit like somebody has given me a nasty kick in the nuts), gets worse during the day after initially being undetectable early in the morning. Testicle feels slightly swollen and left side has burning sensation on outside, especially in upper region.
Avatar n tn I went to my FP on day 79 and he looked at my throat and ordered Amoxicillin. He also ordered for a HIV screening, Syphilis test and a CBC. All came back negative with normal CBC (WBC count 8.7). Later, the Pharyngitis got worse and I had to take a dose of Augmentin after my Amox dose. I also developed Allergic Rhinitis and also started having mild eye infection (1st right eye and the then left).
Avatar m tn Im a chinese staying in asia. Received unprotected oral sex & protected vagina sex on the 30th Apr and also unprotected anallingus only, on the 22nd May. All sexual contacts are with CSWs. The Rash/bump appeared on my glans with no pain/itchy/ in late may. Went to local STD clinic to on 2nd Jun but rashes/bump on my glans have subsided significantly when at the clinc and DR said it likely to be balanitis.
Avatar m tn If an unfortunate side effect should happen to you, well, I am sorry. I am not charging you for this, you are not paying me for it, so don’t sue me. It’s a responsibility that you have to assume. If you expect a risk-free life, with massive compensation should things don’t work out, then don't try this. So, why is this book manuscript free? The physician who reviewed it said, “The materials cost less than $5.
Avatar m tn 1pos The specific Chlamydia pneumoniae IgG and IgA antibodies are no indication for a humoral immune response against Chlamydia pneumoniae. Please look at the Chlamydia Elispot LTT for the actual cellular activity. Chlamydia pneumoniae Elispot LTT +15 SI <2 The result fo the Elispot-Lymphocyte-Transformation-Test (LTT) is an indication for an actual cellular activity against Chlamydia pneumoniae. Mycoplasma pneumoniae IgG (EIA) +1.0 Ratio 1.1=pos Mycoplasma pneumoniae IgM (EIA) 0.
Avatar n tn Every article on the internet has to do with Strep B in prenatal women (when it is very dangerous for the baby) and nothing about Strep B for regular women in their 40's like me :) Thanks, I'd love to hear from anyone who has ever been treated for this disease or any doctors out there.
Avatar n tn This regimen helps for about 3 to 4 hours but it always returns. I took Lunesta for a couple of times but not 2 nights in a row. Thats the only common thread I can see. Hope this helps.
4451049 tn?1387157037 I do my best to keep a low profile of those issues though, even during my own investigations. I definitely suspect Chlamydia Pneumonia for sure but there are most likely other co-infections involved as well.
Avatar f tn A few days prior to the incident, I had taken myself off of the pramipexole that I'd been on for a week, as I was having trouble swallowing (for which the amoxicillin and lanso were prescribed - possible sinus/throat infection or gastric reflux - doc and I wanted to attack on both fronts in order to avoid the return of the laryngospams I'd had during recent respiratory infection). Thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to help...
Avatar m tn im not sure what is tested for when they test for gono and chlamydia it seems to me my drs dont communicate they test for the same two things over and over.except my g.i .ive learned more about vitamin d and dosage seems to help i take 2000 i/u 2 times a day. would it be better ? .st johns wort,coconut oil ,multivitamin,licorice root ,ginger root omeprazole,probiotic,green tea.these are my medicines. until i can get some type of answer.
Avatar n tn Be sure that the doctor tests you for all possible infections b/c even though you have not been active for 2 yrs does not mean you cannot carry bacteria for that period of time. If the results do not return anything, try adding yougart to your diet. I know it sounds weird but I personally feel that my vagina has more of a pleasant smell when I eat it..Just a thought..Good luck.
Avatar n tn But then I became more and more worried, and began to research it and that's when I came across this website. After reading everything I decided to go see my OBGYN. He of course tested me for Herpes, and even though I had read everything that you have all been through, and knowing that none of your tests had come back positive, I was still nervous. He also tested me for a yeast infection.
Avatar m tn Now, my worry is the residual pain/sensation, because it hasn't gone, and I'm afraid it might come back, because I usually read that the recommended dosage for cipro is 10-14 days of 2x500mg and I was given only 7, so I'll wait a bit and let you guys updated.
Avatar n tn But I'm currently serving in the military and i've been to the doctor for this before and they checked to see if i had a hurnia. All my doctor said was that it wasn't a hurnia, they think its just normal or a fluke, and would not give me a referall to see a specialist at a civilian hospital. So now i'm stuck between a rock and a hard place with no help. I'm working with some of my supervisors to go up the chain n get me a referrall to see a specialist but so far nothing has worked.
Avatar n tn thanks for the feedback. i saw my dr a few days ago and he told me to make blood, urine, and semen tests. things are more complicated now. blood comes out after i have sex. when i masturbate there is no blood. he told me that this is very strange. he told me to test my semen 3 times. he told me not to ejaculate 3 or 4 days before the 1st test, then to do the test again 3 days later, and to test it again 3 days after and immediately after having sex.
Avatar f tn looking substance called keratin.They may occur anywhere on body but scalp, ears, back, face, and upper arm, are common sites for sebaceous cysts. A cutaneous horn is a conical projection above the surface of the skin that resembles a miniature horn. Cutaneous horns usually are asymptomatic.But sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar f tn but I know something is seriously wrong. Since my surgery, like you, Im on clarinex-D 24 hour dosage, with lunesta for sleep and celebrex for pain. Pre-surgery I was on nothing and worked out pretty regularly, sometimes 2x a day, weights and cardio split. Now, I ache and hobble around.... I think instead of going into a long winded story of what I think is going on with me, I'm just going to start telling people I have heavy metal poisoning.
