GC Treatment Update

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention no longer recommends the oral antibiotic cefixime as a first-line treatment option for gonorrhea in the United States because of the possibility that the bacteria which causes gonorrhea is becoming resistant to the drug. The most effective treatment for gonorrhea is a combination therapy: the injectable antibiotic ceftriaxone along with one of two other oral antibiotics, either azithromycin or doxycycline. For full treatment information please click here. Visit the CDC website for more information and additional GC resources.
