Hi, my partner and i both took 1g of azithromycin at the same time. We had unprotected sex the same day and the next day. Will it work still?
Yes: My answer is based in the assumption that you both took 1gm Azithromycin after the last sexual encounter. The medication is in both of your systems and working. Give your systems a chance to recuperate and use condoms for at least a week or you will just keep giving each other an infection. Back and forth. You may need a second treatment so follow up with your physicians. ...Read more
I was prescribed Azithromycin yesterday for abnormal discharge as well as an odor. It said on the bottle take four tablets once daily. My pharmacist told me to take all four in one day. I took it yesterday but I still haven't noticed a change.?
STD? BV? Trich?: The most common causes of vaginal discharge with odor are bacterial vaginosis and the STD trichomonas. Neither of these is effectively treated with azithromycin. Perhaps you have something else. If you have tested positive for chlamydia, the normal treatment is just one dose of azithromycin, 2 grams (4 tablets, 250 mg each). It takes a few days for symptoms to clear up. Check with your doctor. ...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?
Give it time: This med is different from 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
I took 3 day cource of azithromycin-500 but i still think all strep bacteria in my throat is not killed. Can I take it for two more days?
What makes you: Think that the strep is still hanging about? Pain or swelling? Difficulty swallowing? Fever or sweats? Thick white discharge or exudate on your tonsils? Some of these symptoms can also come from oral thrush or residual symptoms from severe infection. Most strep infections will leave behind inflammation for a week after. Usually a 5-day course of Azithromycin or 10 day course of Amoxil (amoxicillin) is enough. ...Read more
It depends: If you threw up the medication, it may not have had time to be digested and systemically absorbed to be actively treating your infection. Get re-tested to be safe and you may need re-treating, assure your sexual partner has been treated too, or you will get re-infected. ...Read more
I took azithromycin for chlamydia on an empty stomach around 5:30 pm. Had dinner around 6:15 and threw up at 7. Will it still work?
Probably will work: Research has shown that as long as vomiting doesn't occur sooner than 30 minutes, enough azithromycin is absorbed and treatment remains effective against chlamydia. However, to be maximally safe, ask your doctor whether she recommends another test in 2-3 weeks to be sure you are cured. ...Read more
I took azithromycin for chlamydia but had sex a few days after im now taking doxycycline but have vomited after one of the doses will it still work?
Here are some ...: Apparently, you got gi-upset as its side effect; but a duration of 3-45 minutes should be enough for absorption for most of oral drugs. Did you see the remnant of pills in the vomitus? Meanwhile, the pace of possible clinical resolution of chlamydia-related symptoms may help tell the story. But for worse, it's always possible to try other drugs with less side effects as needed. Work with doctor... ...Read more
If azithromycin 1000mg was taken yesterday afternoon is it normal to still feel sick/nauseous from it? How long does it take to go away?
Azithromycin: Nausea to the point of vomiting is a known side effect of Azithromycin taken by mouth. The vomiting comes within minutes after the medication was taken, and relief comes pretty instantly, because it is out of the body — unfortunately the healing effect is gone, too. If you keep the a. Down, the nausea may linger, but the healing effect is there, too. By tomorrow, you should be fine. ...Read more
HelloThis is a weird question but can I crush an azithromycin tablet and then pour it in alcohol and take it that way? And it will still be effective?
11wks pregnant and found out I have chlamydia dr prescribed me 8 azithromycins 230mg to take in 1 dose and I vomited after 45 minutes is it still effective?
Repeat dose needed: Chlamydia in pregnancy is very serious, it can worsen into pelvic inflammatory disease which can be associated with miscarriage and preterm delivery. You need a full treatment, with a test of cure three weeks later. Given the high risk of infection and the low risk of taking extra antibiotics, I would ask your doctor for a refill now. Try anti nausea meds before antibiotics. ...Read more
