What are the stages for a sinus infection to run it`s course. I am taking azithromycin. I started the medication on friday.
Azithromycin 250mg, I took the 1st dose which is 2 pills & then I took 1 pill the following day. How long will the medication stay in my system for?
Half life 68 hours: We use the term "half life" to get an idea of how long a drug/medication will stay in a person's system. The half life is how long it takes for half of the medication to be metabolized. The half life of a single 500 mg dose of azithromycin is 68 hours. In 68 hours,1/2 of that should be detectable. But then you have to factor in subsequent doses! So you can see, it hangs around for quite a while. ...Read more

2 yo and antibiotics: is the issue taste?? - if so certainly soda will help mask it - my only concern might be the carbonation - flat soda might be better.

If I needed to take Azithromycin for PID, could I withhold (with monitoring) my diltiazem medication for a few days so that I can take Azithromycine?
Lower dose, maybe: Azithromycin increases the levels of Diltiazem, & Diltiazem will increase the levels (effects) of Azithromycin when taken 2gether. Maybe a reasonable way forward is 2 talk to ur doctor abt decreasing the dose or taking smaller amounts of both. If u r at the lowest dose of Diltiazem, then holding off on Diltiazem is a reasonable option. U shd be monitored while taking Azithromycin during this stage ...Read more

Yellow discharge and a little itching after 2 days of gonorrhea medication I got a shot and 2 azithromycin pills please help
Probably OK: It can take a week for gonorrhea symptoms to clear, especially if you also have chlamydia, present in almost half of people with gonorrhea. Your treatment (ceftriaxone and azithromycin) will cure both. But if these symptoms started only after treatment, it could be yeast triggered by the antibiotics. Return to the doctor or clinic if symptoms get worse, or if still there a week after treatment. ...Read more

Not affect medicatio: I am sorry to hear about your vomitting. No throwing up 5 days after taking azithromycin will not affect the medication. Your body has already absorbed the azithromycin, so throwing up will not affect the medication. It is true that throwing up is a side effect of azithromycin. If you continue to throw up more and more than you should consult a physician for help. But otherwise you should be ok. ...Read more
