6 pills same?: Actually to treat chlamydia you need 1g of azythromycin. 4 x 250mg of azithromycin. When treating chlamydia its a good idea to also treat gonorrhea concurrently. Your doctor may have treated you for both. Your partner may have received just 1g of Azithromycin and was not treated for gonorrhea!

Data missing: Numbers can matter but it would help if you give the name of the medicine and the size (mg) in the pills. It does make a difference. You are welcome to start over.
