I have a prescription for azithromycin 500mg daily 10 days. I took my first dose last night at 9 p.m. but Can I take my next dose earlier?
Yes, no problem: You can take the second dose several hours early, no problem. Then continue one dose daily. The exact timing doesn't matter: azithromycin is very long acting, each dose is in your system for a week or more).

I took 3 Azithromycin 500mg pills and want to know if is it safe for the liver if I get drunk in 5 days time?
Potentially a hazard: Azithromycin is metabolized in the liver and lingers for up to a week after the last dose in those with healthy livers. Those who drink will have more difficulty metabolizing azithromycin. Side effects could be significantly worse if alcohol is used within a week of the last azithromycin dose. The best option is to play it safe and not drink. If you drink to get drunk see your doctor for help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am taking azithromycin 500mg for three days for syphilis treatment and i've already taken it for two days. Now i'm told to take 2g single dose.
Not syphilis: I don't think you're being treated for syphilis. If it's syphilis you should be getting a shot of penicillin -- did you get that already? It sounds like they're treating you for chlamydia. You should talk to your doc about why they're making the changes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My Dr. prescribe me azithromycin 500mg for 5 days then clindamycin 300mg for 7 days for my severe tonsilitis. How should i take this two medicine?
Prescribed same time: If your Dr prescribed both of these antibiotics at the same time, I would assume he/she meant for you to take them at the same time unless they specified otherwise. They do not have any undesirable interactions when taken together. Take the 1 Azithromycin and one dose Clindamycin together in the morning, then take your other dose(s) of clinda every 6 hours for your other doses. Take all with food. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Treated for chymadia how long does it take the antibiotics 2work and leave ur system I had to take 2 azithromycin 500mg took it and am not having sex
Azithromycin...: ...is very long acting; it will be in your system for at least 10 days (which is one reason it works well against chlamydia even with only one dose). Probably you will be technically cured within 5 days, but best to avoid sex for a week. And of course don't resume sex with previous partner(s) until he/they have also been treated for chlamydia, even if they had negative test results. ...Read more
