Not an answer buts that 1gram dose of Zithromax taken at once by a 100 lb 35 year old female. I know there are some Zithromax resistant strains so if symptoms don’t disappear than the answer is obvious but any thoughts to aid my anxiety are appreciated as I can’t get to the confidential clinic for week or so
It is possible you can cure gonorrhea with monotherapy.
However, it is NOT recommended, like you said, resistance is high. Please do not randomly take drugs. You are harming yourself. You might breed antibiotic resistant bacteria. Gonorrhea is very resistance to a lot of classes of antibiotic. By taking drugs randomly, you might increase the resistance. In the end, no drug might be able to treat you.
Finish the course.
Go get a test for cure two weeks after the drug is finished.
Yes, i meant to get tested 2 weeks after the completion.
Hi I wanted to follow up. The odor in my urine and need to urintate went away in less than 24 hours but I still got a dull pain in my gut but is is lessened. Could the Zithromax be curing? And again I know need to be tested again in 2 weeks
If you read pubmed, there are studies that shows that azithromycin can treat gonorrhea. I believe it is a good sign your symptoms are clearing up. Azithro is a bacteriostatic antibiotic and it takes time for it to work.
One more question. I heard back from a friend that I told in confidence and she mentioned she has a .5g Zithromax from a past prescription she didn’t use. Given I only took 1gm on sat and 2g is recommend at one (Monday) now would it be a good idea to take thst too? She would drop it off this evening. Sorry. Scared and can’t clinic not until the weekend.
And thank you for the above response. My other concern is the Gonorrhea May have caused a pid and o be no idea if the Zithromax would help with thst. Thank you again for your responses.
Please dont and stop randonly taking azithromycin like that. Please dont, it will further complicate the situation. It might further increase bacteria resistance.
All you can hope is that the drug u took cured the infectionm
Just go get tested and dont do any other things till then.
And how do u know u have gonorrhea? U should really consult a doctor
Symptoms should disappear within a few days, up to 3 days.
