The gonorrhoea infection has a resistant strain in the UK that is increasingly difficult to treat. Whilst the Gonorrhoea Treatment Pack contains both proven STI medications Azithromycin and Cefixime, the most highly recommended treatment by the BNF for gonorrhoea is an injection of antibiotics at your local sexual health clinic or GP practice.
Please note that we are not offering treatment for gonorrhoea at this time. If you think you may have gonorrhoea, it is important that you visit a Genitourinary Medicine (GUM) clinic or sexual health clinic as soon as possible. To find your nearest clinic, you can visit the NHS resources. They can test and treat gonorrhoea effectively with the recommended treatment.
Although gonorrhoea treatments such as Azithromycin and Cefixime can still be effective, at this current moment in time we have decided not to sell any medication for gonorrhoea. This comes following a report from the British Association of Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) claiming that an injection is the most effective option. As a result of this, we advise you to get tested for gonorrhoea. If your results come back positive, you should seek medical advice from your doctor, as well as the injection itself.
The Gonorrhoea Treatment Pack is a specialist combination of two antibiotic medications. Azithromycin is typically used to treat STIs, including chlamydia, and Cefixime is often used to treat other bacteria-caused infections, such as pneumonia, bronchitis and urinary tract infections.
|Short facts about the Gonorrhoea Treatment Pack|
|How to use||
To clear up gonorrhoea completely, continue using both medications as instructed for the full course of treatment.
|How it works||
Both the medications in the Gonorrhoea Treatment Pack work by targeting the bacterium causing your infection.
Both medications combined are a very effective treatment for gonorrhoea, however an antibiotics injection is considered most effective.
Azithromycin comes in both 250mg and 500mg. Cefixime comes as a 400mg tablet.
Common side effects of both medications include nausea, headache, vomiting, upset stomach and skin rashes.
Both the medications contained in the pack are antibiotic treatments that directly target the bacterium that are causing your infection. The latest studies by the BNF suggest that the best course of treatment for gonorrhoea is antibiotics administered via injection, but Cefixime and Azithromycin are two highly effective antibiotic medications that can treat and cure gonorrhoea if an alternative to an injection is required, as strains become ever more resistant to antibiotics. Azithromycin has the additional ability to treat other non-gonococcal infections that can often occur alongside a gonorrhoea infection, which has been standard procedure with many doctors, even before the new gonorrhoea treatment guidelines had been issued.
Both Azithromycin and Cefixime are easy to take, and you only need to take one dose of each medication.
Azithromycin comes in a 250mg and 500mg tablet, typically you take two doses of the 500 mg to create a 1,000mg dosage. The standard dosage for Cefixime is in a 400mg capsule.
Side effects caused by both medications are mostly mild and they aren't likely to affect everyone, especially since the duration of treatment is so short. Common side effects of both medications may include nausea, headaches, vomiting, upset stomach and skin rashes. If you start to develop an allergic reaction, any more serious side effects, or if the common side effects persist, speak to your doctor straight away.
