Chlamydia is caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis.
Chlamydia can be treated with a variety of antibiotics, including azithromycin, tetracyclines, quinolones, and erythromycin
Gonorrhea is caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Penicillin use to be given but the bacteria have become resistant to it. Flouroquinolones are also used but resistance is also beginning. Antibiotics called cephalosporins are now the drugs of choice eg Ceftriaxone or alternatively Azithromycin (Zithromax).
Sulfamethoxazole/TPM would be ineffective against gonorrhoea and chlamydia.
