Chlamydia Pneumoniae treatment


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.
