Can Sulfamethoxazole Cure Chlamydia
Can Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) help cure Chlamydia after you have had Azithromycin powder??

Chlamydia is a curable sexually transmitted infection that is caused by the bacteria chlamydia trachomatis.

Chlamydia Infection: Nope. That antibiotic is not known for efficacy against chlamydia.
Would taking Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for 2 days make me falsely negative for Chlamydia? It was a PCR test.
Probably not: Sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim (Bactrim) can suppress chlamydia, so it could lead to a false negative test result. However, 2 days is too soon. Even with the most effective antibiotics against chlamydia (e.g., doxycycline, azithromycin) it usually takes a few days for DNA tests (like PCR) to become negative. So your result probably is reliable. But if in doubt, discuss with the doctor or clinic.
UTI, Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) 2x daily for 7 days, burning went away, 2 bactrims (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) left and I am beginning to feel uncomfortable down there again. Is this chlamydia?
Well: You can take a one day course of treatment - but you still shouldn't have sexual contact for at least 7 days.
No: Amoxicillin will not cure chlamydia in anyone. This antibiotic is not active against chlamdia because this organisms does not have a classic bacterial cell wall, the site of action of penicillin and related antibiotics. Chlamydia should be treated with doxycycline, azitromycin, Erythromycin or fluorinated quinolones.
