How effective is cipro (ciprofloxacin) for treating chlamydia?

How effective is cipro (ciprofloxacin) for treating chlamydia?

Not very effective.: Quinolones, like ciprofloxacin, are not first line treatments for chlamydia. The effectiveness of Cipro in particular is questionable. Other quinolones are more effective, but require a full week of therapy and are more costly than the preferred agents, Doxycycline or azithromycin. Gonorrhea, usually treated at the same time, is now showing resistance to quinolones, making them less attractive. ...Read more

Can Amoxicillin-Clavulanate (Augmentin) 875-125 MG

Treat gonorrhea, chlamydia and STI's?

If dosed right: Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) would help kill off some strains of gonorrhea, but not all. It would likely do nothing for chlamydia and many other STI's. It would be best to get in to see a provider knowledgeable about current treatment protocols and get correct treatment, if needed.This is nothing you would want to self treat with borrowed meds. Several of these germs can make you sterile. ...Read more

Not necessarily: I usually prescribe doxycycline (do not take of you are pregnant) 100mg orally twice a day for 21days. That usually cures the infection. It would be wise to talk to your physician and tell him/her that you received a second opinion and what does he/she say. ...Read more
