just checking in my drugbook:
Neisseria gonorrhoeae, at one time susceptible to penicillin, are now treated with a third-generation cephalosporin such as ceftriaxone.
First-generation cephalosporins are effective against Neisseria.
(ceftriaxone = Rocephin)
Floxin = Olfloxacin is a fluoroquinolone used to treat gonorrhea.
Fluoroquinolones are useful in treating infections due to Neisseria gonorrhoeae, but resistance is becoming a problem. Fluoroquinolones should not be given to men who have sex with men or when infection likely occurred during travel, especially to Asia, the Pacific Islands, England, and Wales, because of increased rates of fluoroquinolone-resistant N. gonorrhoeae. Because recommendations for treatment of gonorrhea change as resistance becomes more prevalent, consult www.cdc.gov/std
for the most current recommendations.
Fluoroquinolones are contraindicated in children younger than 18 years of age, if other alternatives are available.
Limited data are available on the safety of fluoroquinolones in pregnant or lactating women (the drugs therefore should not be used unless the benefits outweigh the potential risks.
