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.

Could a single dose of 1g azithromycin and 500mg ciprofloxacin be enough to treat chlamydia and gonorrhea infection?
No: Current cdc recommendations for gonorrhea and chlmydia are a single dose of Ceftriaxone 250 mg (shot) and a single dose of Azithromycin 1g (by mouth). Instead of Azithromycin you could do Doxycycline 100 mg by mouth twice a day for 7 days.

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.

Will 500mg of levaquin (levofloxacin) daily for 14 days prescribed for orchitis cure gonorrhea bacteria if it is present as well?
Will a regimen of azithromycin and doxycycline treat chronic bacterial prostatitis on a par with cipro (ciprofloxacin) or levaquin?
Not necessarily.: Each antibiotic you mentioned has its own profile of bacteria that it is effective against. If your chronic prostatitis is caused by a bacteria that is resistant, treatment will fail. A culture of the bacteria, with antibiotic sensitivity data is therefore key to treating the infection. Before culture results are known, details of your history will guide antibiotic choice. ...Read more

If you have a known atypical pneumonia from bacterial causes it depends on the infectious agent, etc. The typical dose is 500, g for one day then 250mg for four days for a bronchitis in a patient with COPD and worsening cough... Otherwise chicken soup is just the thing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
