In my clinic and in many other public health minded experts we always treat for both regardless of test results. ...Read more

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?

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
