The efficacies of two dosage regimens (2.0 g and 1.5 g each day for four days) of rosaramicin were compared in 40 men with acute uncomplicated gonococcal urethritis. After treatment 39 (97%) of 40 patients were asymptomatic and had negative cultures. Gastrointestinal side effects were reported for 12 (28%) of 43 patients; however, only two patients (5%) discontinued therapy because of side effects.
