Is chlamydia treatment really that effective?

Yes: The currently recommended antibiotic for chlamydia is almost always successful (99%). Usually if it doesn't work, it just wasn't taken.

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

11wks pregnant and found out I have chlamydia dr prescribed me 8 azithromycins 230mg to take in 1 dose and i vomited after 45 minutes is it still effective?

Repeat dose needed: Chlamydia in pregnancy is very very serious, it can worsen into pelvic inflammatory disease which can be associated with miscarriage and preterm delivery. You need a full treatment , with a test of cure three weeks later. Given the high risk of infection and the low risk of taking extra antibiotics, i would ask your doctor for a refill now. Try anti nausea meds before antibiotics. ...Read more

How effective currenly is 2 weeks of doxycline for chlamydia/gonorhea? My infec disease doctor gave me for that suspected.

How effective currenly is 2 weeks of doxycline for chlamydia/gonorhea? My infec disease doctor gave me for that suspected.

Ask your doctor...: Although empirical treatment is convenient & reasonable, it is still uncertain because clinical symptoms and diagnosis are not sure, and the care for partners are not unclear. Generally, for gono/chlamydia, 250 mg Rocephin (ceftriaxone) for gono and 1 gm of azithromycin for chlamydia will suffice for most of cases. More?
