I took 1000g of azithromycin at once for a single day dose a week ago for chlamydia, can I take another 1000g if some symptoms are still occurring?
Give it time: This med is different than some. It actually attaches to your fat cells after ingestion and gradually enters your blood for a week or more to do its work. That is one reason they use it in STD's, to try to get people to remember all their med. If you take it all at once, you don't have to remember to take more. Yes you can be re-treated but may not need to. ...Read more

It is usually advised to wait a week, in order to give a large margin of safety, but 6 days should be safe. Of course if you had the same partner previously, you can assume he is infected already.

If I drink a couple if beers four hours after taking azithromycin single dose will it fail to cure chlamydia?
Antibiotics and combined Alcohol use are never recommended as the Z pak (azithromycin) is likely not going to be as effective for chlamydia use.
My rationale is that Z pak (azithromycin) is metabolized in the liver by Cytochrome p450 and Alcohol increases this same enzyme that degrades a Z pak (azithromycin).
Please see your doctor or pharmacist for more questions. ...Read more
