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?

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

Azithromycin in europe (im there only currently)-is sumamed. Is it same pill, safe for treat of pity. Rosea too? To me is said to take 500mg 1x1 for 3 days

Azithromycin in europe (im there only currently)-is sumamed. Is it same pill, safe for treat of pity. Rosea too? To me is said to take 500mg 1x1 for 3 days

Safe, not effective: Sumamed=zithromax/azithromycin. Zithromax is a relatively safe medication to take, even in pregnancy, and 500mg daily x3 is the 3-day-pack dosage. It is relatively safe medicine to use, but not effective for pityriasis rosea--the true cause is not known but believed to be viral. Thus antibiotic such as zithromax has no role in the treatment. Consult doc if you have trouble. Good luck. ...Read more

Reasons why azithromycin 500mg 2 pill did not cure chlamydia?

Reasons why azithromycin 500mg 2 pill did not cure chlamydia?

It depends...: Are you sure it didn't cure? Can't tell by symptoms, only if a test still shows chlamydia. Even then, testing too soon can give false result; retesting shouldn't be done sooner than 3 weeks. Sex with an untreated partner, or a new partner with chlamydia, could seem like treatment failure but really a new infection. Azithromycin works less well in the rectum, from which cervix can be reinfected. ...Read more

In what fluids will azithromycin tablets disolve in? I don't want to be able to taste it. Can I crush them and put them in tea?

Swallow them whole: The tablets won't taste bad if you just swallow them whole -- or maybe very brief bitterness. If you crush or try to dissove them in tea or anything else, it will be extremely bitter and difficult to swallow. If you can't handle the large pills, ask the pharmacy to replace them with the powder form of azithromycin, which is designed to be disooved in water or juice. ...Read more

Hi, I took azithromycin yesterday afternoon but I have just taken 2 Rennie tablets. Will this be ok? Will it affect my azithromycin?

Rennie tabs: Rennie tablets, which are antacids decrease the acid in your stomach. This can slow down the breakdown of the coating for medications. You should be fine with the timeline you laid out. ...Read more

I'm on azithromycin 250 mg is it okay if I drink tonight. I took the day three pill an hour or so ago and am not going out for another 8 hours.?

Probably OK: Alcohol generally does not interfere with any antibiotic. Azithromycin can irritate the GI tract, with abdominal pain, nausea, etc, and so can alcohol -- so the two together could be uncomfortable. Probably best to not take them together, at least a couple hours apart. Otherwise no worries if it doesn't bother your stomach. ...Read more

I took my last azithromycin on Fri which was during the non-active pill week. I started my new pack on Sun. Will this affect the effectiveness of bc?

I took my last azithromycin on Fri which was during the non-active pill week. I started my new pack on Sun. Will this affect the effectiveness of bc?

No, unless Rifampin: Other antibiotics are felt not to affect BC pills. A woman who takes birth control pills correctly, and is beyond her first pack of pills, has contraception (protection against pregnancy) every day. That means she can have sex every day and not get pregnant. If she has vomiting or diarrhea bad enough to affect her ability to digest (absorb) her BC pill hormones, then her protection level drops. ...Read more

Could azithromycin 250mg tablets treat h1n1?

No: H1N1 Influenza A is a virus and is not treatable with antibiotics, of which Azithromycin is one. The best way to prevent getting H1N1 is by getting your annual flu shot. If you end up getting the flu, supportive care (fluids, pain control, etc) is the treatment of choice. ...Read more

My weight is 96 kg. What will happen if I take azithromycin overdose? (a 500 mg tablet daily for 15 days)

DO NOT: Who advised you to do that. For a chlamydial infection you need 1gram once. That's it. Remember that by taking antibiotics unnecessarily you increase its resistance to other diseases hence treatment of other disease could become difficult. If you are taking a Zpak then please take it for the 5 days. Only what your doctor prescribes. ...Read more
