Hi, I took 1000mg of Azithromycin on March 22 to get rid of Chlamydia, I had my period the last week of March already but have vaginal blood today?

Return to doctor: Return to your doctor to be rechecked. Once in a while azithromcycin doesn't cure chlamydia; or you may also have an additional STD; or vaginal bleeding with some other cause. Most important is to be professionally evaluated. Good luck! ...Read more

Does zithromax used for chlamydia get rid of pid? How can I be sure if chlamydia did or didn't cause infertility?

Does zithromax used for chlamydia get rid of pid? How can I be sure if chlamydia did or didn't cause infertility?

PID: Because chlamydia can stay without symptoms, it can cause damage to the fallopian tubes and lead to infertility later in life. If diagnosed early, a single dose of zithromax should treat the infection and reduce any risk for complications. Still, the only way to know if there is any residual effect is to evaluate the fallopian tubes with a hysterosalpingogram. ...Read more

I was positive on chlamydia and drank 3 pills of azithromycin 500mg each but threw up 20mins later, will I have to get treatment again?? Please help!!

Azithromycin: Large single dose azithromycin can cause nausea. Doxycycline can be used as a 10 day treatment, spreading the medication dose over more time, which you should tolerate better. Please consult with a doctor to get a new treatment, since likely you haven't absorbed any of the azithromycin after throwing it up. ...Read more

I took 2 grams of Zithromax Monday, I had a refill from a previous sinus infection, I took 1 gram today, will that affect the treatment of chlamydia?

I took 2 grams of Zithromax Monday, I had a refill from a previous sinus infection, I took 1 gram today, will that affect the treatment of chlamydia?

It depends: If by "affect the treatment, " you mean "Will 2+ grams of Zithromax treat Chlamydia? " then the answer is yes. I wouldn't have prescribed the amount you used (a single 1 gram dose of Zithromax is recommended) but it shouldn't hurt you. Remember that your partner also needs to be treated and that Chlamydia can recur if you're re-exposed in the future. ...Read more

My friend was prescribed Zithromax for suspected Chlamydia infection and he was then prescribed another gram when treatment failed. Is this normal?

My friend was prescribed Zithromax for suspected Chlamydia infection and he was then prescribed another gram when treatment failed. Is this normal?

Hard to say: One of the primary reasons for treatment failure is the wrong diagnosis which led to ineffective treatment. You say "suspected"chlamydia".This agent shares symptoms with other germs, and retreating the wrong condition with an otherwise effective med is odd. I would want to confirm the diagnosis. Another possibility is continued exposure to an untreated partner with re-infection. ...Read more

I am wondering on why an individual would be on azithromycin 10 day and twice daily treatment? And if this will cure chlamydia?

Not the CDC dosing: Yes, this would cure chlamydia (and many other things as well!) but it is not the dose recommended by the centers for disease control. That dose is one gram, once. Because azythromycin has been linked with sudden death in certain patients, it is not recommended to deviate from the ascribed dosing. ...Read more

Was treated on Monday with azithromycin 2g for chlamydia and I'm still having symptoms and it's Friday. Did the treatment fail?

Probably not..: It probably didn't fail, but likely isn't finished working. Even with the one time dose it can take up to one to two weeks for symptoms to completely disappear. During this time you should abstain from sex as you could still transmit it to your partner (s). Also keep in mind your sexual partner (s) will all need treatment as well, otherwise you will continue to pass it back and forth. ...Read more

Me and my partner were treated for chlamydia with azithromycin and has protected sex a day after treament. Does that effect the treatment?

Treating Chlamydia: Yes, in the scenario you describe you had a sexual encounter when one or both of you were not fully treated. I often advise my patients that it takes at least 48 hours to be free of contagion after being treated for chlamydia or gonorrhea. I would also hope that your health care provider treated you for both...Which is the best approach to these two infections. ...Read more

My partner received treatment through Azithromycin for Chlamydia. However, I received fellatio from her within 4 days of the treatment, am I at risk?

Depends: You lists this as an exposure to your partner but do not state whether you also received treatment. The oral sex is not a particular risk for that STD, but If you were not treated at the same time as your partner, and you may have chlamydia already. If treated then I don't think this is a problem. ...Read more
