The Effectiveness Of Syphilis Treatment With Penicillin Injections And Taking Pills?
Tonight.. I am a sufferer of latent syphilis, then the doctor advised me to be injected to the hospital but I didn’t want it because it was expensive so the doctor gave me 100 mg Siclidon pills for me to take 2 X a day for a month.rnrnI I want to ask, which is more effective and guarantees a speedy recovery, is penicillin injection or just taking pills enough?rnThank you, please reply
Hello, Sheila Widya Rani, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Treatment of syphilis requires patience and patience from the sufferer and the doctor who treats it. Syphilis requires antibiotics to cure it. Indeed, the most recommended antibiotic choice for syphilis is to inject benzathine penicillin. The injected drug depends on the stage of syphilis (primary, secondary, early latent, or late latent). However, if you are unable to get a penicillin shot (eg due to penicillin allergy, unavailability, or other circumstances), there are other antibiotic options recommended by the CDC (Central for Disease Control). So far, Doxycicline (an antibiotic found in Siclidon) for 28 days is the best alternative to penicillin injections for the treatment of latent syphilis.
It is better to take the medicine regularly (better if it is taken at the same time every day, for example at 7 am and 7 pm), until it runs out, and don't forget to check with the doctor according to his advice. Side effects that may arise are nausea, stomach pain, skin rash, itching, dry mouth, discharge from the vagina, headache, vaginal itching, etc. If you experience these symptoms, consult a doctor immediately. Here is an article about syphilis and doxycycline, please read it for additional information.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
