FAQ

Two tablets of Suprax (400 mg) and four tablets of Azithromycin are the treatment we recommend for gonorrhoea (2G). Both are administered in a single dose.

Suprax 200 mg tablets contain the antibiotic cefixime. This antibiotic belongs to a class known as cephalosporins.

Suprax is used to treat infections caused by bacteria.

These include ear, nose, and sinus infections (such as sinusitis) • Pharynx (such as tonsillitis, pharyngitis) • Chest and lungs (such as bronchitis, pneumonia) • Urinary organs (such as cystitis and kidney infections).

Azithromycin belongs to the class of drugs known as macrolide antibiotics. Antibiotics are utilised to treat bacterial infections.

• chest, throat, or nasal infections (such as bronchitis, pneumonia, tonsillitis, sore throat (pharyngitis), and sinusitis) that are susceptible to azithromycin • hearing loss • skin and soft tissue infections, with the exception of infected burn wounds, such as Chlamydia trachomatis-caused infections of the tube that carries urine from the bladder (urethra) or the neck of the womb (cervix).

What dosage am I to take?

Two Suprax (cefixime) 200 mg tablets and four Azithromycin 500 mg tablets are to be taken together as a single dose.

To reduce the likelihood of side effects, the tablets should ideally be taken after a meal.

Do not take any antacids two hours before or after taking the antibiotics, as doing so will reduce the treatment’s efficacy. As both infections are commonly found together, it is fortunate that the treatment for gonorrhoea also treats Chlamydia.

What antibiotics are used to treat gonorrhoea?

We provide second-line treatment for those who dislike injections, are unable to access a sexual health clinic, or do not wish to be embarrassed.

Our treatment pack contains two Suprax 200 mg (cefixime) tablets and four Azithromycin 500 mg tablets. Each of the six tablets is taken as a single dose. Our second-line treatment is also effective against Chlamydia infections. This is fortunate, as both infections are commonly contracted simultaneously.

Cefixime belongs to the class of cephalosporin antibiotics, which are related to penicillin. It functions by interfering with bacteria’s ability to form cell walls. This results in the death of the bacteria and subsequent elimination of the infection, as their cell walls are vital to their survival.

Azithromycin inhibits protein synthesis in susceptible bacteria, thereby preventing their growth and allowing the body’s immune system to eliminate the infection.

Does treatment for gonorrhoea also treat chlamydia?

Yes. Gonorrhea is treated with a combination of two antibiotics, one of which, Azithromycin, is also effective against Chlamydia.

How quickly does gonorrhoea treatment take effect?

After taking a single dose of the combination of Cefixime and Azithromycin, the infection should clear up within seven days, although you may continue to experience symptoms for another seven to fourteen days.

However, we recommend that you refrain from sexual activity for at least seven days.

Additionally, we recommend that you get tested two weeks after taking the medication (no sooner than 14 days) to ensure that the treatment was effective.

Can gonorrhoea tablets be purchased online?

Yes, a combination of two antibiotics is available for purchase. Two Suprax (cefixime) 200 mg tablets and four Azithromycin 500 mg tablets are prescribed.

As recommended by the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV, BASHH, the first-line treatment for gonorrhoea is Ceftriaxone administered via injection in the buttock or thigh.

This treatment is not, however, available online. To receive the injection, you must visit a sexual health clinic or make an appointment with your primary care physician.

To ensure the treatment is safe and appropriate for you, we will ask you to complete a brief medical questionnaire.

Yes. At home, gonorrhoea can be treated with a combination of two antibiotics in a single dose, totaling 6 tablets. After a meal or food, it is best to take them with a large glass of water. This will reduce your likelihood of experiencing side effects.

Two Suprax (cefixime) 200 mg tablets and four Azithromycin 500 mg tablets are the antibiotics prescribed.

How soon after gonorrhoea treatment can I resume sexual activity?

You should refrain from sexual activity for seven days following treatment. Don’t forget that you and your partner should receive treatment to ensure that you are both free of gonorrhoea and to prevent reinfection.

Is gonorrhoea curable?

The vast majority of gonorrhoea cases are curable. Please note, however, that re-infection is possible if you have unprotected sex with an infected partner.

Additionally, you may have recently read or heard about an antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhoea that has been reported in a few cases in the United Kingdom. Prior to receiving treatment for gonorrhoea, it is crucial that you have been positively diagnosed with the disease in order to prevent the situation from escalating.

Numerous STIs share similar symptoms, so it is essential to receive a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Does the antibiotic doxycycline treat gonorrhoea?

No. Doxycycline is an antibiotic prescribed for seven days to treat Chlamydia. Refer to the Chlamydia section for treatment options.

Our gonorrhoea treatment package costs £45. Two Suprax (cefixime) 200 mg tablets and four Azithromycin 500 mg tablets are included.

How effective are online gonorrhoea treatments?

It has been determined that our online treatment is very effective. However, online therapies are considered second-line and less effective than first-line therapies.

Oral administration of a combination of two different antibiotics constitutes the second-line treatment.

For initial treatment, which involves an injection in the buttocks or thigh, you would need to visit a sexual health clinic or make an appointment with your doctor.

How can gonorrhoea in men be treated?

Men and women receive the same treatment for urogenital and rectal gonorrhoea via the Internet. It requires the administration of the antibiotics Suprax (cefixime) and Azithromycin.

How can gonorrhoea in women be treated?

Women and men can be treated for urogenital and rectal gonorrhoea with a single dose of Suprax (Cefixime) and Azithromycin.

Does gonorrhoea treatment impact menstruation?

Gonorrhea can cause intermenstrual bleeding and/or heavier periods, but the treatment should have no effect. In fact, once the infection has been eliminated, your cycle should return to normal.

How do I contract gonorrhoea, and what is its effect?

Gonorrhea can be contracted through unprotected sexual contact with an infected individual. If you are concerned that you have put yourself at risk, you should wait 14 days before taking a test, as the infection may not be detectable until then.

Gonorrhea, which is caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoea, is the second most prevalent sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the United Kingdom.
