Usually is: At the proper dose, this is generally effective.Azithromycin is unusual in its action as it can be given in a single dose, attach to the fat cells in your body and leak into your blood over a week or more to kill germs. It might kill the chlamydia by itself, but the Doxy will back it up to be sure.

Not correct dose: The correct dose for uncomplicated chlamydia is 1 g of azithromycin as a single dose for you and your sexual partner.
