What kind infection?: Taking a lot of Azithromycin at one time sounds like treatment for a sexually transmitted illness. I wonder whether drinking was part of what put you into the position of having unsafe sex, if that is what happened. If not, I am still concerned when someone asks how soon they can drink after medication X or surgery Y, as to whether there is an alcohol problem. There are drug interactions as well.
