I went to the doctor a couple days ago about a sinus infection and burning sensation in my urethra. He did a urine test for gonorhea and ngu (waiting for results. He treated me with cefuroxime axetil 250mg x2 per day for 14 daysHe said if ther is gonorhea infection or ngu it should cure it along with my sinus infection. How effective is cefuroxime axetil against ngu or gonorhea, if indeed one is positive. I may urinated maybe less than an hour before test, not really sure but would that make a big difference. The test was the NAAT and urine analysis.
Welcome to the Forum. I am afraid your doctor is mis-informed. The cefuroxime would not be effective against chlamydial infection and would be questionable therapy for NGU not caused by chlamydia. In addition, this is too little cefuroxime to be effective for gonorrhea as well.
If your NAAT or urinalysis is positive for gonorrhea,chlamydia or for non-chlamydial NGU, you'll need different therapy.
