Dosing may be: different if in indeed it is Chlamydia Pharyngitis. In addition, Gonorrhea requires different dosing or added antibiotics. Data on microbiologic efficacy based on culture are limited; the results of 3 published treatment studies in adults that used cultures demonstrated 70% to 80% eradication of Chlamydia pneumoniae from the respiratory tract in adults with community-acquired pneumonia after treatment with azithromycin, levofloxacin, or moxifloxacin

Yes: It should take care of the infection. You may recheck in one month for test of cure.

It does: Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease. Zithromax is the currently the most common treatment for chlamydia. The dose is 1 gram taken all at one time. Other antibiotics used to treat chlamydia include erythromycin and doxycycline. Any of these medications taken as prescribed for treatment of chlamydia should kill the germs at all sites in your body including your throat.

Yes, usually.: The dose is the same for both. It is important to get follow up testing in 7 to 10 days to make sure the infection is gone, though.
