Chlamydia Trachomatis and Neisseria Gonorrheae - #PHARMFAX

Gonorrhea and chlamydia are the two most common STI in the US.


Gonorrhea and chlamydia are the two most common STI in the US. Don’t ignore that purulent discharge and burning sensation down there after some high risky behavior, that includes behavior of “monogamous” partners. STI can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility. Both are detected with nucleic acid amplifcation test for rapid diagnostics. These infections are typically treated together as they tend to coinfect patients. Chlamydia is treated with preferably doxycycline for 7 days and azithromycin 1gm x 1. This can be treated with PO antibiotics, but Gonorrhea should be treated with parenteral ceftriaxone due to increasing resistance rates. Empirically, the regimens are given together, but if known causative organism, the preferred treatment can be given. Partners need to be treated and patients should abstain from intercourse at least seven days. Did you wrap up the PHARMFAX? Check out another video on my page, and I hope you learned something new.
