Does the metronidazole antibiotic cure BV and chlamydia?

Does the metronidazole antibiotic cure BV and chlamydia?

Not both: Metronidazole will often cure BV (bacterial vaginosis). It is ineffective against chlamydia. For this you will need a different antibiotic, such as azithromycin, doxycycline, eryhromycin, or uncommonly Levofloxacin and ofloxacin. See your clinician for an appropriate prescription. ...Read more

Can bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) treat gonorrhea?

Can bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) treat gonorrhea?

Not reliably: Sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim)) might work against gonorrhea but it isn't reliable or recommended. If you are tempted to use Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) left over from some other infection becuase you suspect you have gonorrhea or were exposed... Don't do it! See a doctor or clinic for proper diagnosis and treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Does azithromycin treat chlaymidia and gonnereah?

Z-pak: The Azithromycin covers the Chlaymidia, ...and Rocephin or a medication like Cipro (ciprofloxacin) should be used for the Gonnorhea. You should get both treated and the Z-pak will only really cover the Chlaymidia. Good luck. ...Read more

Can Amoxicillin-Clavulanate (Augmentin) 875-125 MG Treat gonorrhea, chlamydia and STI's?

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

Can a combination of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and flagyl cure an std?

Can a combination of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and flagyl cure an std?

Depends on the STD: There are 20-30 bacteria and viruses that cause STDs. Some would be cured with these antibiotics but others would not. Only one, trichomonas, is reliably cured by metronidazole (Flagyl). Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) would work against some cases of gonorrhea or chlamydia, but not against anything else -- and it is not the best drug for any STD. Sounds like you'd better check back with the doctor who prescribed them. ...Read more

Does Flagyl and amoxilin effect the efficiency of azithromycin for chlamydia?

Does Flagyl and amoxilin effect the efficiency of azithromycin for chlamydia?

Shouldn't: In fact amoxicillen used to be the alternate to doxycycline for treatment of chlamydia in pregnancy and still is if allergic to zithromax. All those antibiotcs however if taken close together likely would result in a yeast infection. Also, ask for a test of cure a couple weeks after zithromax and no sex with your partner(s) until he/they are all treated. ...Read more

Does either of Cefazedone and Amikacin treat Chlamydia or Gonnorhea?

Does either of Cefazedone and Amikacin treat Chlamydia or Gonnorhea?

Not recommended: Cefazedone is active against gonorrhea, but no research has ever been published on its effecrtiveness. Amikacin is similar. Probably either of them would be effective if given in high enough dose or for long enough, but the doses aren't known and they are not recommended. Neither has any effect at all against chlamydia. Find a doctor or clinic where recommended treatments are understood and used. ...Read more

Im allergic to penicillin and erythromycine, can I take bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim)?

Im allergic to penicillin and erythromycine, can I take bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim)?

Yes but for what?: Yes. You can take Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) as it is a sulfa drug and different class of drug from penicillin and erythromycin. The real question is for what condition do you want to take? Because the causative organisms for specific diseases may be virus, bacteria, fungus or parasite and the Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is not a magic bullet for all. See your doctorwho would tailor the antibiotic according to organism & sensitivity. ...Read more
