Antimicrobial Drugs for treating gonorrhea.
Bacterial infections are treated using antibiotics. An example of a common bacterial infection treated with antibiotics is gonorrhea. However, different strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the bacteria responsible for gonorrhea, have emerged. These strains are treated with a combination of stronger antibiotics. Treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhea is usually done with a combination of ceftriaxone and azithromycin. Monotherapy is not recommended since the bacteria can easily develop resistance towards the drug. Ceftriaxone is usually given as an intramuscular or intravenous injection. Share this paper
