A 35-year-old member asked:

will amoxicillin treat gonnorrhea/chlamydia?

Minimal help: The emergence of strains of gonorrhea resistant to the penicillin group of meds in the late 70's make this a poor choice.Amoxicillin may have some effect on the gc and is rarely used for chlamydia. The standard treatment for a dual infection is doxycycline+azithromycin. See www.Cdc.Gov/std/treatment/2010/gonococcal-infections.Htm.
Dr. Lawrence Yeung

No: No, the correct antibiotics for these stds would be a combo like Ceftriaxone and azithromycin.

Rectal symptoms: Rectal pain, pain on defecation, and rectal bleeding or discharge. Remember that some anal chlamydia, especially in gay men, is due to a type of chlamydia called lymphogranuloma venereum (lgv), which requires a longer course of treatment than standard chlamydia. Not all labs can tell the difference.

A 23-year-old female asked:

I have chlamydia and suspect I may have pid, will the zithromax prescribed cure PID if I have it, or do I need to go back to the doctor to be checked?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. William Forsythe
Emergency Medicine 27 years experience
Go back: It's a good start but adding an injection of antibiotics and additional coverage would be wise and get you feeling better more quickly if it is pid. A pelvic exam and culture should be performed.
