The treatment course for gonorrhea depends on the type of infection. Typical uncomplicated gonorrhea is treated with a single injection of ceftriaxone, but the patient should not be considered cured and not contagious for seven days after one-day treatment.

If the doctor prescribed doxycycline and ciprofloxacin for chlamydia can you take both or should you choose one?

It sounds like your doctor is treating you for chlamydia with doxycycline, and against the possibility of undetected gonorrhea with ciprofloxacin. However, Cipro is no longer recommended for treatment of gonorrhea in 2011 as I'm typing this answer. Call your doctor to find out what was intended with the two medications. There may be some other explanation specific to your situation. If the doctor was trying to cover gonorrhea, ask him or her to choose a medication from the current CDC treatment recommendations.
