If I have 9 pills of 500 mg azithromycin how do I take the tabs to cure chlamydia?

1 gram: Assuming confirmed chlamydia or discharge & no rash after recent sexual contact AND azithromycin is a few months old at most, treatment for chlamydia is 1 gram of azithromycin taken at once. So 2 of the 500 mg tablets. That's all. However, should also be tested for gonorrhea - often associated with chlamydia. There's an oral med but current CDC guidelines recommend single injection instead. ...Read more

Is it possible 500 mg of azithromycin will treat chlamydia? What is the likelihood that this is enough? I do not have access to 1g. I have no symtoms

Is it possible 500 mg of azithromycin will treat chlamydia? What is the likelihood that this is enough? I do not have access to 1g. I have no symtoms

Not enough: This dose is not reliable against chlamydia. You need to find another 500 mg; in fact, if you already treated yourself, you need another two doses -- total 1 g taken all at once. If you could get 500 mg, surely you can get the rest. Contact your local health department for probable free treatment. Also, you need to be tested; and other sex partners (all within the past 2 months) also need Rx. ...Read more

I have Chlamydia and have a 1 gram packet of Azithromycin was going to put 500 mg in food then two hours later put 500 mg in food again will this work?

Good choice: While long-acting Azithromycin should be taken on an empty stomach one hour before or two hours after eating, single dose Azithromycin works well with or without food, so your plan will work fine. ...Read more

I took two 500 mg azithromycin tablets yesterday for chlamydia. And I m bleeding today. Is that normal?

Not normal, but...: ...not necessarily harmful. If your choamydia has caused cervicitis, the cervix may bleed. This happens especially after sex, but can happen on its own. (And of course you shouldn't have resumed sex this soon.) It takes a few days for azithromycin to work, so bleeding a day later isn't a concern. But if it's heavy or continues more than a few days, check back with the doctor treating you. ...Read more

How long does it take for azithromycin to cure chlamydia?

Allow seven days: Azithromycin can remain in the body for more than ten days after a single dose - as in the usual treatment for chlamydia. By day seven, chlamydia would be cured and the chance of transmitting the organism would be negligible. The chance for reacquiring chlamydia is very high if the infected person's partners are not also treated. ...Read more

Reasons why azithromycin 500mg 2 pill did not cure chlamydia?

Reasons why azithromycin 500mg 2 pill did not cure chlamydia?

It depends...: Are you sure it didn't cure? Can't tell by symptoms, only if a test still shows chlamydia. Even then, testing too soon can give false result; retesting shouldn't be done sooner than 3 weeks. Sex with an untreated partner, or a new partner with chlamydia, could seem like treatment failure but really a new infection. Azithromycin works less well in the rectum, from which cervix can be reinfected. ...Read more

Reinfection?: 1 gram of Azithromycin given as a single dose will almost always cure chlamydia. If your symptoms don't get better, it's unlikely that the drug failed. The more likely explanation is that your partner wasn't treated and gave it back to you. See your doctor. ...Read more

Can it be possible that azithromycin did not work to clear chlamydia?

Possible: I usually recommend a test of cure a couple weeks after the medication is given. Women who threw up shortly after taking the dose may not get cured and other malabsorption issues may be an issue. However, the usual cause of failure is having sex with your partner and either they didn't take the medication or they get re infected. ...Read more

One day ago I took azithromycin for chlamydia when can I have potected sex?

You could but: Condoms are very effective at preventing transmission of std that are caused by fluid like gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis and hiv. It seems to me it would be more socially responsible until after you have been retested in a few weeks though before you put someone else at risk. You also should inform the current partner of the your recent infection so they have choice in their risk taking. ...Read more
