How long does it take for suprax (cefixime) and azithromycin take to clear gonerrhea? A

How long does it take for suprax (cefixime) and azithromycin take to clear gonerrhea? A

Not long at all but: ...the damage that Gonorrhea can cause reproductive tract could linger...indefinitely. Some doctors advise a repeat test (test of cure) about 3 weeks after treatment to be sure it's cleared. Infection doesn't make you immune to repeat infection, so be extra careful protecting yourself against re-infection. Condoms, partner testing and "monogamy "are your best defenses. Wishing u well!

How long does it take for suprax (cefixime) and azithromycin take to clear gonerrhea pill form taken yesterday?

2 weeks: We usually recommend avoiding intercourse for two weeks after all sexual partners have been treated. Then coming in for a retest to make sure it is clear before having sex again.

I have gonorreah, I have been advised to take cefixime and azithromycin together. So should I take all 8 pills together? 4x100mg cef and 4x250mg azith

I have gonorreah, I have been advised to take cefixime and azithromycin together. So should I take all 8 pills together? 4x100mg cef and 4x250mg azith

Doesn't matter much: It makes no difference in curing your gonorrhea, but taking the drugs together might cause stomach upset. Take the cefixime, wait an hour or two, and then the azithromycin. You may still get some abdominal discomfort or nauses from the azithromycin, but it usually isn't severe. Good luck.

Burning sensation after using loo and urine after finishing a course of. Suprax (cefixime) and azithromycin for 10 days?

Burning sensation after using loo and urine after finishing a course of. Suprax (cefixime) and azithromycin for 10 days?

Urethritis: Azithromycin and Cefixime (suprax) are useful antibiotics, but not the right ones for treating the usual bacteria that cause a urinary tract infection. If you continue to experience irritation/pain during urination see a doctor for a prescription of trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole.

I took 400 mg of cefixime and 1g of Azithromycin at the same time and had severe diarrhea 1 1/2 hours later? Do I need to take another dose of both?

I took 400 mg of cefixime and 1g of Azithromycin at the same time and had severe diarrhea 1 1/2 hours later? Do I need to take another dose of both?

Speak with provider: You should speak with the provider who prescribed these meds for you. Not uncommon to have diarrhea with this combination and dose of medication. See if another route of administration or another abx might be used.

Are metronidazole, azithromycin and cefixime (or ciprox if cefixime not available)safe to be taken concurrently?

Too many medications: Nope. It sure does not sound like a wise plan to be on so much of similar medications at once. Any further information here would need more information from you. What are you treating and why are you choosing these medications?

Took azithromycin 2.5 g and cefixime 800 mg daily for 3 days on April 18, 19, 20. Possible re-exposure to STI on May 1 -enough zithro still in body?

Took azithromycin 2.5 g and cefixime 800 mg daily for 3 days on April 18, 19, 20. Possible re-exposure to STI on May 1 -enough zithro still in body?

Don't count on it: We usually expect treatment levels of the drug to persist for a week or so, enough to kill off the initial infection. Any re-exposure 10 or more days later is worrisome, and you may not have enough to protect you. Time to get re-tested. In the future, use a condom. It is not 100% protective but can help some.

My doctor prescribed me 400 mg single dose cefixime and 1 g azithromycin single dose 2 weeks apart for a suspected pid. Is this effective?

Maybe not: The Azithromycin will treat chlamydia. Cefixime is no longer recommended for treatment of gonorrhea in the U.S. Because of drug resistance. The recommended treatment here is with a 250 mg injection of ceftriaxone.

My widal test rept-to + upto 1:80, th + upto 1:160, ah upto 1:80, bh + upto 1:40, my doc says it is typhoid and prescribed cefixime and azithromycin, isok?

Widal: This test measures antibodies that may take up to 2 weeks or more to form in active disease, making its use in acute infection limited. In addition the cross reactivity of the test makes its use questionable absent a full assessment of the clinical situation and appropriate culture of blood and urine. Since typhoid is uncommon in the us need to know where else you have been (punjab?).

My GF is being treated for Chlamydia 1x 1000mg Azithromycin and 1x 800mg Cefixime. It's been a week she has a fever and intense pain, is this normal?

My GF is being treated for Chlamydia 1x 1000mg Azithromycin and 1x 800mg Cefixime. It's been a week she has a fever and intense pain, is this normal?

Not normal. PID?: If her pain is in the lower abdomen, probably she has pelvic inflammatory disease (PID, fallopian tube infection). The treatment she had is fine for uncomplicated chlamydia (and/or gonorrhea), but not sufficient for PID. She should contact her doctor immediately, or go to an urgent care clinic or emergincy room. This could be serious. Good luck!

Is 1g of azithromycin and 400 mg of cefixime good against gonorrhea? Tried doxy+cipro already and it didn't work. I'm in Thailand, allergic penicilin

Is 1g of azithromycin and 400 mg of cefixime good against gonorrhea? Tried doxy+cipro already and it didn't work. I'm in Thailand, allergic penicilin

Should be OK: Gonorrhea bacteria in SE Asia, including Thailand, often are resistant to both ciprofloxacin and doxycycline, so no surprise they didn't work. Cefixime and azithromycin should be OK, but the best option would have been a shot of ceftriaxone 250 mg instead of cefixime. You should be retested in a couple of week to be sure it's gone; if not, see an STD expert and discuss ceftriaxone. Good luck.
