Ensure Patients With Gonorrhea Get Two 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.
This is important. A recent report shows that about 10% of patients treated for gonorrhea get either ceftriaxone or azithromycin ALONE.
