Is cephalexin good treatment for gonorrhea?

Patient

Q: Is cephalexin good treatment for gonorrhea?

Unfortunately I probably have a bacterial STD/Gonorrhea. I say probably because I still don't have the test results. I have to wait a few days to get the results. The doctor still prescribed me two dosis of Ceftriaxone and 500mg of Cephalexin.

I ask because I googled about cephalexin and the results never mentioned to be used for a bacterial std's.

Symptoms:  Penile discharge, Rash
