What happens if you can't have a penicillin shot for syphilis?

What happens if you can't have a penicillin shot for syphilis?

Doxycycline: Doxycycline for 2-4 weeks is recommended if penicillin cannot be given, or sometimes ceftriaxone. However, penicillin is by far the best drug. If you had a severe penicillin allergy in the past, then probably penicillin should be avoided. Otherwise, it still might be the best choice for you. Discuss it with your doctor or, even better, an infectious diseases or STD specialist. ...Read more

3 years ago, i had chlamydia. Got penicillin shot, and 2 weeks of twice daily doxycycline. The first 4 days, i puked after first pill. Should i worry?

No: Nausea and vomiting are unfortunate side effects of antibiotics. Doxycycline is one of the antibiotics that can commonly have that side effect in some people. Make sure that you do not mention it as an allergy but rather side effect since it could limit useful antibiotics used commonly for various infections. ...Read more

Can I take vitamins during an antibiotics treatment with penicillin? Can you tell me a first aid for penicillin allergic reaction ? Thank you :) Carol

Can I take vitamins during an antibiotics treatment with penicillin? Can you tell me a first aid for penicillin allergic reaction ? Thank you :) Carol

Yes, and see below: So yes you can take vitamins while on antibiotics. The rationale is that when you go on system antibacterial agents like that you wipe out healthy flora in your gut and elsewhere. Vitamins, pro-vitamins and growth factors are synthesized by bacterial carpets (ie some B vitamins, riboflavin, thiamine, co-enzyme I & II and pyridoxine to name several). For PCN allergy; benadryl (diphenhydramine) & epinephrine. ...Read more

With Cefzil & rocephin (ceftriaxone) I get hives.Should I take penicillin shot for syphilis treatment.This is a 3rd infection. Used doxycycline for first 2.

Condoned: Penicillin is still the first line treatment for syphilis. The most effective treatment for syphilis is not to get it, use a condom. The more often you get it, the greater your risk for antibiotic resistance. Also, with this being your third episode, you are now at high risk of contracting chlamydia and HIV. You need to get tested for those too. Stop playing Russian roulette with your life. ...Read more
