Answer

With inpatient regimens for PID, evidence of significant clinical improvement and confidence in completion of medical therapy must be present before the patient is discharged. Recommended parenteral regimens include cefoxitin or cefotetan along with a 14-day course of doxycycline or, alternatively, clindamycin plus gentamicin or ampicillin-sulbactam plus doxycycline.
