The mycoplasma genitalium (MGen) treatment pack is a course of antibiotics containing both Doxycycline capsules and Azithromycin tablets.
It is currently the first line of treatment and the most effective way of curing mycoplasma genitalium, a common STI.
If you’ve tested positive for MGen, you can purchase our treatment pack online here at euroClinix.
But, taking both medications (over 10 days) is the most successful way of treating MGen.
Mgen is caused by mycoplasma genitalium bacteria, which start to grow and multiply once you have become infected.
By taking the capsules and tablets from the treatment pack, you stop the bacteria from being able to spread. This gives your immune system a chance to kill the bacteria and clear you of your infection.
The antibiotics come in the form of capsules and tablets, which should be swallowed with water.
Please note: Do not crush or chew the tablets when you are taking them.
The treatment pack contains:
The two antibiotics must be taken on different days. Do not take both Doxycycline and Azithromycin within 24 hours of each other.
Always read the patient leaflet carefully and follow the instructions given. However, a guide for the 10-day course of antibiotics is shown below:
|Day 1||Day 2||Day 3||Day 4||Day 5|
|2x 100mg Doxycycline capsules||2x 100mg Doxycycline capsules||2x 100mg Doxycycline capsules||2x 100mg Doxycycline capsules||2x 100mg Doxycycline capsules|
|Day 6||Day 7||Day 8||Day 9||Day 10|
|2x 100mg Doxycycline capsules||2x 100mg Doxycycline capsules||2x 500mg Azithromycin tablets||1x 500mg Azithromycin tablet||1x 500mg Azithromycin tablet|
If you forget to take a tablet, take one as soon as you remember. However, if you forget all day, do not make up for the forgotten tablet by taking a double dose.
Instead, continue taking the course of antibiotics as usual, aiming to finish 1 day later than planned.
Always finish the entire course of treatment, even if your symptoms have gone away. If you don’t take all the medication, your infection could return.
As with all medication, there is a risk that you will experience some side effects whilst taking treatment for MGen.
Not everyone gets them, and if you do, they will likely be mild and disappear when you finish the treatment.
Some common side effects include:
Please note: To find a full list of side effects, consult the patient leaflet included in your medication pack.
