Help Ensure Patients With Gonorrhea Get the Right Antibiotics
You'll see renewed focus on using DUAL antibiotic therapy for gonorrhea...due to growing concerns about resistance.
Ceftriaxone plus azithromycin has been recommended for years to cover possible chlamydia coinfection. But there are more reasons to use two drugs...to possibly boost efficacy and slow gonorrhea resistance.
Expect most patients with gonorrhea to continue to get one dose of IM ceftriaxone 250 mg from their prescriber...PLUS oral azithromycin 1 g, as an Rx or in the prescriber's office.
