In brief: Minimal help

The emergence of strains of gonorrhea resistant to the penicillin group of meds in the late 70's make this a poor choice.
Amoxicillin may have some effect on the gc and is rarely used for chlamydia. The standard treatment for a dual infection is doxycycline+azithromycin. See www.Cdc.Gov/std/treatment/2010/gonococcal-infections.Htm.

In brief: No

No, the correct antibiotics for these stds would be a combo like Ceftriaxone and azithromycin.
