See ID specialist?: With the cardiac effect from moxifloxacin, you need to get an EKG to check for prolonged QT interval. There is likely another drug which covers the same organism without affecting the heart and thus an infectious disease specialist may be needed.

Uti uncomplicated klebsiella o. 1 day of cipro (ciprofloxacin) = hives and diarrhea. Doctor switched me to suprax since culture showed it effective. Is suprax 'safe'?

Safety of suprax (cefixime): Yes, suprax (cefixime) is safe. It is a cephalosporin antibiotic. Interestingly, it was not used for many years because of antibiotic resistance. Recently it has proven itself and for your situation it sounds like a reasonable choice. ...Read more

Resistance possible: Acinetibacter resistance could be occur when taking an antibiotic and not reaching therapeutic dose or discontinuing a medication before completing it. Some bacteria require double coverage or intravenous if not improving. See your primary doctor as he/she will follow your cultures or recommend the next part of your care.

Treated 2 weeks doxy 1 gram azithromycin for pos. chlamydia. Now neg. Urethral itching, discharge when squeezed, urinary urgency persist. Moxifloxacin?

You should get tests: For other possible causes of urethritis or urinary infection. If you are not circumcised, it's possible that you may have local yeast overgrowth causing irritation. Especially since you were on medication that would not cure all potential causes of urethritis or all sexually transmitted infection, you may need more tests and treatment. Avoid sex until your doc says you're OK, and partner treated. ...Read more

Ngu from oral sex 1yr. No discharge 1g azithromycin, 2wk doxy, 6wk cipro (ciprofloxacin). All swabs since neg but still feel symptoms. STDs neg inc MG & UU. What now?

Ngu from oral sex 1yr. No discharge 1g azithromycin, 2wk doxy, 6wk cipro (ciprofloxacin). All swabs since neg but still feel symptoms. STDs neg inc MG & UU. What now?

Probably not NGU: NGU doesn't do this. Without discharge, it is unlikely NGU is the problem. Non-response to those antibiotics plus your test results mean you have no infection at all but probably a non-infection problem. Perhaps the chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) (google it for more info). Happily CPPS is an issue of comfort, not harm. Find a genitourinary med expert, e.g. your local NHS GUM clinic. ...Read more

Ngu oral sex. Chlamydia, gc, myco gen neg. 1 swab was 7wbc. wife took doxy & I took aizthrmycin 1g. swabs since <5wbc. Never discharge or pain. Ngu?

Unclear treatment: If you and your wife’s tests are all negative indicating no infection then it is unclear to me why antibiotics were given. Doxycycline and Zithromax in those doses are standard treatment for chlamydia yet both of you were negative. Treatment should not be based on WBC alone especially given that you have no symptoms. Clarify the underlying problem trying to be addressed please. ...Read more
