As soon as the Chlamydia pneumoniae infection sets in, you need to look for a complete Chlamydia pneumoniae treatment. Since the Chlamydia pneumoniae bacteria spreads quickly amongst the cells, it is important that you take the treatment step at the earliest. This would ensure that the Chlamydia pneumoniae is checked in the initial stage and does not spread to cause more damage. The Chlamydia pneumoniae can be quite challenging and only a swift reaction to the Chlamydia pneumoniae infection can spare you from its wrath.
The most commonly used antibiotics are macrolides such as azithromycin or clarithromycin. If a test of Chlamydophila pneumoniae as a cause clearly shows, switch to the therapy to doxycycline, which is fewer side effects and slightly more effective against this bacterium. Sometimes a quinolone antibiotic such as levofloxacin initiation of therapy is used, but has more side effects. The treatment usually lasts 10 to 14 days.
In a post-infectious arthritis or tendinitis Chlamydophila pneumoniae in vitro is inhibited most efficiently by clarithromycin. The antibiotic therapy for 30-90 days are done here.
The prognosis of pneumonia by Chlamydophila pneumoniae is good. Hospital stays are atypical, complications are rare and most patients have no aftereffects after surviving the disease.
