Antibiotic treatment for gonorrhoea consists of treatment with two different single-dose antibiotics. Cefixime (Suprax) is a broad-spectrum antibiotic and is effective at killing a wide variety of bacteria. When being taken to treat the sexually-transmitted infection Gonorrhea, it is used in conjunction with another antibiotic, called Azithromycin. The dosage for successfully treating Gonorrhea with these antibiotics is:
Dual antibiotic treatment with Suprax & Azithromycin for gonorrhoea will also treat chlamydia. This is necessary as a significant number of people who contract gonorrhoea will also catch chlamydia at the same time.
Cefixime works by interfering with a bacteria’s ability to form cell walls. These walls are vital to the bacteria’s survival as they keep any unwanted substance out of the cell, as well as preventing anything inside from leaking out. Suprax tablets compromises the bonds that holds the bacterial cell walls together. This will allow holes to appear in the cell walls, which will kill the bacteria.
Suprax 200mg Tablets contain the active ingredient Cefixime. Suprax is manufacturd by Sanofi-Aventis. As well as gonorrhoea, Cefixime (Suprax) can be used to treat a variety of bacterial infections including urinary tract infections, bacterial infections of the lungs, and bacterial infections of the middle ear although different doses are required.
Suprax or Cefixime is categorised as a prescription only medicine (POM) and is a type of antibiotic known as a Cephalosporin. These types of antibiotics are related to Penicillin, so it is not recommended to take Suprax if a known allergy to Penicillin exists. Suprax 200mg Tablets are round in shape and white in colour. The tablets are marked ‘ORO’ on one side with the other side being plain.
