Azithromycin for syphilis

Common Questions and Answers about Azithromycin for syphilis


101028 tn?1419606604 Turns out the 1 time dose of azithromycin most of us are given for chlamydia treatment is also covering syphilis which is very good news since we can't test for syphilis as early as chlamydia and gonorrhea. For those who have a fear of needles this is also good news :) J Infect Dis. 2010 Jun 1;201(11):1729-35. A phase III equivalence trial of azithromycin versus benzathine penicillin for treatment of early syphilis.
Avatar m tn My questions is am I infected? Is Azithromycin will cure this? How many dosage will I take for my case? Please help. Thank you and more power!
Avatar m tn 0 grams (4 500 mg pills) taken at one time is just as effective as penicillin for syphilis treatment however, there are some cases of treatment failures with azithromycin for syphilis treatment and many of the treatment failures have come from San Francisco where you apparently live. Thus this is a matter of concern. While many people will be cured by therapy of early syphilis with azithromycin, the dose you have received is not the recommended dose.
Avatar n tn Vance, the sore were not open at the same time. to best describe it, it seems like they took turns.i am noticing a light rash with red spots on my arms. could this be a reaction to the azithromycin i took? what does u gut suggest when i describe the symptoms?please help. i should have gone to the doctor when the symptoms first broke out but for embarassment, i dint. i live in the US.
Avatar n tn Hello Doctor I had tested blood for going to gulf for Job during bllod testing i had found TPHA test positive tier 1:640 hence they had again call me for blood test , i had recheck this in onthor lab & result was same hence i consulted with my doctor & my doctor has started antibiotic oral azithromycin.& Doxycycline for next 15 days. My ? is After this will TPHA test will be negative? How much time it will take to became negative. As i had one month to join new company .
Avatar n tn finally, when studied over 15 years ago 1.0 gram of azithromycin was highly effective for syphilis prevention. since then there have been some reports of failure of this dose to prevent syphilis in exposed men who have sex with other men.
Avatar m tn After 8 days I was tested for Ghonnorea and Chlamydia, both negative after 10 days (I was scared) I took 1g of Azithomycin Now after 82 days i will be tested for HIV and Syphilis I didn't had any sore or lessions up to now. Will the Azithromycin influence my test results? Because I read it masks or delays incubating syphilis..
Avatar m tn I didn't notice any symptoms of syphilis on me at all. So is it possible that azithromycin can affect the vdrl for syphilis? I hope my doctor knew what he was doing. He told I could take the test within the next two days after our consultation.
Avatar m tn he told me that your treatment has completed u don't need more medication, and u have very low level syphilis, but its show positive in report for a while, but after 6 months, retest again then it will be negative.
Avatar m tn I took a Syphilis RPR test while on antibiotics (Azithromycin). Would that skew the test?
Avatar m tn 0 gram dose is also the dose shown to be effective for syphilis. You describe taking 1500 mg (1.5 grams) over about 3 days. This dose would probably cure most chlamydial infection and NGU and some gonorrhea or syphilis but not all. Beyond that, there really no way to answer your question with complete confidence.
Avatar m tn the TPPA and RPR test are all negative,but I take 12 pills of Azithromycin to cure my NGU during the 4 weeks,and I did not take the pills for 5 days before I take tke test.some one told me that the Azithromycin would cure the syphilis,and it will make the test result inaccurate,should I test syphilis again,and would the Azithromycin make the result inaccurate?

Avatar n tn 04PM You are right that the data on use of azithromycin for syphilis prevention is worrisome however penicillin (or amoxicillin) is highly active and if you had been exposure to syphilis 5 days of amoxicillin would have cured it. Please do not th8ink that I am trying to "point a finger". I just wanted to let you know that I have taken the time to research but am still vague on the issue. Would 1.5g of azithromycin taken in a single dose cure syphillis?
Avatar n tn ) as my wife would leave me for sure if she ever finds out. So after 1 day on Monday I took 1,5 g azithromycin in a single dose because I have read that it is a "catch all stds-antibiotic". My questions: 1) Will it be effective against gonnorhea and syphilis? 2) I have read online that syphilis strains have become resistant against azithromycin, how do you judge that for Germany and my situation in particula?
Avatar f tn Monday of this week, I noticed what looked like an ingrown hair on my scrotum. I FREAKED OUT!! Syphilis came to mind. I overreacted and took a 1000 mg pill of Azithromycin in the morning and one that night. Still freaking out on Tuesday, I googled more and saw where recommened dose was 2 grams in a single dose. I took 2, 1000 mg pills immediately. The chancre seems to be fading, but Im still freaking out. Will the amount of Azitromycin ive taken cure or stop any progression of any STDs?
Avatar m tn 1.) I haven't tested for syphilis yet (too early), but would these antibiotics clear up any potential syphilis infection if I had one or is that a completely different treatment? 2.) How is syphilis tested and would it be different if acquired in the throat through oral sex? Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn After taking treatment for a Syphilis Chancre (penicillin or azithromycin), how long does it normally take for the chancre to start to heal after getting treatment? Also are there any good pictures that show the healing process of a Chancre?
Avatar f tn How soon after starting doxy are you non-infectious for syphilis? 4. Could ulcer represent donovonosis or LGV? Thanks for your responses in advance.
Avatar n tn If the exposure was in Ireland the figures are similar and the risk is no greater and probably less You are right that the data on use of azithromycin for syphilis prevention is worrisome however penicillin (or amoxicillin) is highly active and if you had been exposure to syphilis 5 days of amoxicillin would have cured it. Bottom line, there is no reason to worry aobut syphilis and no need for further testing.
Avatar f tn ) we don't recommend automatic retesting at this point for it either. always have protected oral sex and genital/anal sex with partners until you are sure of their std status. most folks don't get full std testing and most don't get it at the proper times so it's well worth using proper precautions until you are absolutely sure of someone's monogamy and also their status :) have you had your gardasil shot series for hpv too?
Avatar n tn I was prescribed 2g of azithromycin for possible Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. I took the medication in one dose orally on thursday night. It is now monday morning and i still feel a little burning when i urinate. How many days does it take azithromycin to cure these STD's.
Avatar m tn I have been in a monogamous relationship for 12 years. She gave me a one dose of azithromycin. The next day during a bowel movement it discharge was thick and lumpy. I am waiting for my gonnorea chlamydia and syphlis test results. Q1. Can NGU show up that quickly Q2. She saw little to no WBC in urine Based on paper test. Does that catch ngu and gohnoria? Q3. Assume my long term partner is not affected, wihat is the likelyhood the treatment will work and problem will go away. Q4.
Avatar f tn The other antibiotics prescribed to treat throat Gonorrhoea do not interfere with the treatment for syphilis or the test. It is important that in 4 weeks' time, your get tested for Syphilis and for throat Gonorrhoea, just to make sure that these treatmetns have been effective, in the case that you have been infected.
Avatar n tn so whether such antibiotic affect syphilis test and the 3 months-test for syphilis which i intend to test will not be conclusive for me? if not which test is conclusive, how long i must wait for??.
