Likely: I'm guessing that they might have made a mistake with the prescriptions, but I would also guess that you will be adequately treated. If you're at all worried, you can go back to clinic or doctor and ask for a test of cure, a repeat chlamydia test, to make sure that the infection is cleared, that's definitely an option. Or call your doctor's office and ask for recommendation as well.
