I was just wondering since it says that cephalexin or keflex can be used to treat uti's.. Since Chlamydia is a uti.. Does that apply? Some say yes.. Some say no.. Does anyone here have experiance with this? Thanks.
Clamydia is not a UTI. A UTI is a urinary tract infection caused by bacteria.Clamydia is a STD A sexually transmited disease. keflex is usually prescribed for skin infections. A doctor would have to do a culture and treat the patient according to a examination and culture results. I hope this helps. Good Luck and if this is for you get it checked out. this is nothing to leave untreated. God Bless and have a great holiday
"The two recommended treatment regimens are considered to be equally effective. The alternative regimens may be necessary in some individuals but two are more expensive (Oflaxacin/Levofloxacin), and the third (Erythromycin) may be less effective. This is because Erythromycin makes many people sick to their stomachs, which can affect the way the medication is absorbed.
When you are being treated for chlamydia it is important that your sexual partners are treated as well. If they are not, you could end up passing the infection back and forth between you. You should also abstain from sex for 7 days after the start of treatment in order not to infect your sexual partners. If abstaining is not possible, make certain to use condoms for all sexual encounters – including oral sex. "
Hope this helps
