Gonorrhea must be treated, and with courses of antibiotic therapy. They are treated both with shock single doses of antibiotics in oral form, and with a standard regimen for a week. Let’s talk about which to use antibiotics for gonorrhea.
For the treatment of acute gonorrhea, one antibiotic therapy is enough.
In the chronic course, the use of immunomodulators, hepatoprotectors and vitamins is indicated.
Gonorrhea is a very serious disease, and if left untreated, it leads to all sorts of unpleasant consequences.
In men, infection leads to narrowing of the urethra, abscesses, prostatitis, infertility. Gonorrhea increases the chance of getting prostate cancer.
Antibiotics for gonorrhea in men
Men, and women, too, should be treated for gonorrhea under constant medical supervision.
Outpatient treatment is more often practiced, less often – inpatient.
The basis of treatment is antibiotic therapy.
It is carried out until the complete destruction of gonococcus.
Treatment involves the prohibition of sexual contact and the use of alcoholic beverages.
Penicillin group antibiotics are used very often.
They are treated with oxacillin, amoxicillin, benzylpenicillin.
Fluoroquinolones (ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, levofloxacin), macrolides (josamycin, azithromycin), cephalosporins (cefazolin, ceftriaxone, cefataxime) are also widely used.
The low efficacy and tolerability of antibiotic therapy leads to the use of sulfaeilamide preparations, such as biseptol and sulfadimethoxine, to combat gonococcus.
One-time use of powerful antibiotics – ceftriaxone, giramide and aminoglycosides.
At the same time, to enhance the action of antibiotics, you need to use immunomodulators.
Tablet antibiotics in the treatment of gonorrhea
Not all people calmly tolerate injections.
Therefore, if there are no conjunctival lesions from gonorrhea, complicated gonorrhea or pregnancy, then they prefer to undergo antibiotic therapy with drugs in the form of tablets.
Most often, gonorrhea is treated with cephalosporins.
The most famous and popular antibiotic from this group is called ceftriaxone. But it can only be injectable. In this case, they are treated with a similar drug – cefixime. It also belongs to the cephalosporins (third generation), like ceftriaxone. They are treated with a single oral intake, in the form of tablets, with four hundred milligrams of the drug.
Amoxil for complicated gonorrhea
Patients with complicated gonorrhea are treated in inpatient conditions. Antibiotic therapy is carried out with the same drugs, for example, amoxil, but according to a different scheme.
Remember that gonorrhea should be treated only according to the scheme prescribed by the doctor and under his supervision. And be sure to use antibiotics.
