Urinary tract infect: Axithromycin is NOT the best antibiotic to treat urinary tract infections. You need either ciprofloxacin or Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) (septra in some countries) for better coverage to eradicate bacteria from urine.

Wrong treatment: I cannot see if you are male or female. Or if they are treating an STD. Azithromycin would treat chlamydia. It would not treat a urinary tract infection and it would not treat any form of Gonorrhea. Most men need a shot and pills to treat the STDs that caused yautia.
