Gonorrhea is a widespread sexually transmitted disease today. It is caused by bacteria and often strikes those that have had Chlamydia. It is one of the top health problems not only in the U.S. but also in other parts of the globe.

Treatment for Gonorrhea

If you have been diagnosed with gonorrhea, it is best to consult a doctor to know what the best type of treatment there is for your gonorrhea infection.

 

 

Here are some examples of treatment medications that doctors give gonorrhea patients:

One gram of Azithromycin has to be taken orally once for the entire duration of the treatment, along with 125 grams of Ceftriaxone to be injected into the patient’s muscle

100 milligrams of doxycycline to be taken orally twice a day for seven days, along with 125 grams of Ceftriaxone to be injected into the patient’s muscle

Two grams of azithromycin for those with severe cephalosporin allergies

400 grams of Cefixime taken orally in a single dose, along with one gram of Azithromycin taken orally in a single dose or 100 milligrams of doxycycline taken orally twice a day for seven days

For the best treatment plan for you, talk to your doctor right after your gonorrhea test.
