medications for chlamydia
Jun 27, 2012
i have a prescription for clindamycin and im wondering if that medication would cure chlamydia? please help me with this question.
Response from Dr. Young
Clindamycin is not a treatment for Chlamydia. According to the US CDC:
Chlamydia can be easily treated and cured with antibiotics. A single dose of azithromycin or a week of doxycycline (twice daily) are the most commonly used treatments. HIV-positive persons with chlamydia should receive the same treatment as those who are HIV negative.
