Appropriate Antibiotic Treatment For Gonorrhea?
I have had gonorrhea for 5 days and today I went to the doctor for a consultation, check and treatment.rnMy symptoms are pain when urinating, discharge like sperm but only a little.rnAntibiotics given ceptically 200gr (there are 2 capsules) so 400gr and only one drink immediately ran out) and 100gr interdoxin (14 capsules for 1 week and must be used up). My question is rn1. How to relieve pain when urinating?rn2. Is my gonorrhea severe?rn3. Are my antibiotics correct? And why do you only drink 200gr x 2 once?rn4. What are the signs of antibiotic resistance?rn5. When and what are the signs of my gonorrhea getting better?
Cases of gonorrhea or gonorrhea are sexually transmitted diseases that can be cured optimally. This cure is obtained through antibiotic treatment and prevention of recurrence of the disease.
The best antibiotic treatment for gonorrhea is by injection of Ceftriaxone 250 mg intramuscularly (eg by injection into the buttocks) just 1 time plus Azithromycin 1 gram one time a meal. It is the first line antibiotic for cases of gonorrhea. With the combination of these two antibiotics, the chance of cure from gonorrhea is very large. If Ceftriaxone is not available, replace it with another alternative, namely Cefiximen 400 mg (the first drug you take) plus Azihthromycin 1 gram (one time is enough for each) or Doxycycline 100 mg (the second drug you take) 2x/day for 7 days if it turns out that Azithromycin is also not available. So the bottom line is that you actually got the right drug in the form of a second-line antibiotic (possibly the first-line drug is not available). For further control, it is recommended to return to the doctor 1 week after treatment for evaluation. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/CDC 2015 recommendations)
The complaints you feel because of gonorrhea will generally subside a few days after starting therapy. Reduced complaints are a sign that your therapy is successful. If it turns out that after one week there has been no improvement, immediately return to the doctor for further treatment. Failure of therapy can be due to drug resistance or the absence of personal precautions. The preventive measures in question are:
Do not have sex during treatment. Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease so do not have sex during treatment.
Treat your partner. If it turns out that the gonorrhea you are experiencing comes from a partner or has been transmitted to a partner, then he or she must also be treated to break the chain of transmission.
Do not engage in illegal, multipartner, or same-sex relationships. Especially for same-sex sexual intercourse, research shows that the prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases is much higher than sexual intercourse of the opposite sex.
Gonorrhea cases can be cured well. Treatment is not enough with antibiotics alone, must be accompanied by the precautions mentioned above.
