A 23-year-old male asked about a 21-year-old male:
A friend recently treated himself for chlamydia with azithromycin (2x500mg), however it was marked for fish, does this have a harmful effect to humans

Inappropriate: Medication is not intended for humans , self treatment is not a good idea for any one , first your friend should see a physician to find out what type of infection he has , may have contacted additional std s bedsides chlamydia , and in future to take preventive measures.
