Question: Doctor,
I tested positive for Gomorrah and was treated with 1500mg of Azithromycin and 800mg of Cefixime. It has been two days since treatment And I have not noticed any improvement in symptoms. Is this normal or shoul I have already seen improvement?

Brief Answer:
You will feel improvement in a day or two.

Detailed Answer:
Greeting from Dr. Divakara.P
First of all thanks for choosing Healthcaremagic for posting your query.

As of medications is concerned they are fine, you may notice some improvement after 3rd day of staring antibiotics.

But have you been tested for only Gonorrhoea or other sexually transmitted diseases also been tested , if yes what is the result of those tests.

Also is your sexual partner also being treated , else you may get it back again if you have unprotected Sex.

So just wait for a day more and you should be feeling better.

Also let me know what symptoms are you having now ?

Hope you find this information useful.
Any clarifications or Queries feel free to ask.
