I am living abroad. My doctor gave me a 1 gm dose of sporidex (cefalexin 250mg once) + 7day dose of doxycycline (100mg twice) for gonorrhea. Is cefalexin 1g effective?

Yes it is. The new cdc treatment guideline recommends combination therapy with Ceftriaxone 250 mg as a single intramuscular dose, plus either Azithromycin 1 g orally in a single dose or Doxycycline 100 mg orally twice daily for 7 days. So your treatment is fine. Read more...

I was given a Rx for doxycycline for potential exposure to syphilis and gonorrhea, all test came back neg, can I stop the meds? I took 2 doses. Thx

Check with your doctor. Syphilis test could be negative early on in the illness. Gonorrhea tests can also be negative even when you have the disease. Best is to recon sulk your doctor.

Hello, Last October I was diagnosed with gonorrhea and given a shot along with doxycycline. I took the antibiotics but missed three doses during the?

Probably OK, but... In addition to the shot of ceftriaxone, doxycycline was given both to increase reliability against gonorrhea and to treat for possible chlamydia, which is often present at the same time. Missing a few doses of doxy probably didn't harm anything. However, you should have been retested after 3-6 months. If that wasn't done, you should be tested now for both gonorrhea and chlamydia. Good luck! Read more...
