Gonorrhea is a curable disease that must be treated correctly. Some of the concerns today is that theere are drug resistant strains and if the symptoms persist several days after treatment, you must be re-evaluated. In a recent update from the Center for Disease Control, the current recommendation is for the use of combination therapy with ceftriaxone ( an injection) and either azithromycin 1 gram one time or doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 7days. Ciprofloxacin is not recommended.
