Shigella treatment guidelines

First-line therapy may need to be reconsidered based on local resistance rates due to common resistance to co-trimoxazole and ciprofloxacin.
Shigella – Shigellosis
Antibiotics can shorten the duration of illness (by about 2 days) and might help reduce the spread of Shigella to others, 3, 2, 2, PMCID: PMC6143181 PMID: 30048255

Guidelines for the treatment of dysentery (shigellosis): a

Current guidelines for the treatment of shigellosis are based on data which are over a decade old, Antimotility agents are not recommended as they may prolong the course of disease, Treatment is recommended for most symptomatic patients, Treatment 1, Fluid and electrolyte replacement, Routine antibacterial treatment is not indicated in dysentery because of the multiple drug resistance of shigellae, Washing your hands often with soap and running water and taking other hygiene measures can help protect you and your loved ones from infection.

CDC Recommendations for Managing and Reporting Shigella

Clinicians should carefully monitor patients with Shigella infections who require fluoroquinolone treatment and report any possible treatment failures, if indicated, First-line therapy may need to be reconsidered based on local resistance rates due to common resistance to co-trimoxazole and ciprofloxacin.
