I was diagnosed with Chlamydia and was prescribed both, Metronidazole and Azithromycin. My boyfriend was only prescribed Azithromycin. Why?

Treatment Guidlines: You were treated based on the newest guidelines for treatment and he was not. I suppose you were not treated by the same physician. According to my source "The Sanford Guide" newest recommendations for Chlamydia are to treat for occult Trichomonas as well with Metronidazole. This is due to 13% found in women and 20% in men.

Can I continue to take my herbal weight loss pills while taking yeast infection medication? Terconazole, metronidazole and azithromycin.

Can I continue to take my herbal weight loss pills while taking yeast infection medication? Terconazole, metronidazole and azithromycin.

Yes, but: It's a total waste of your money. The only thing that will lose weight is your wallet. There may also be interactions with the pills and your rx since we don't know that's in the pills. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. The only way to lose weight and keep it off is to eat less and exercise more.

Are metronidazole, azithromycin and cefixime (or ciprox if cefixime not available)safe to be taken concurrently?

Too many medications: Nope. It sure does not sound like a wise plan to be on so much of similar medications at once. Any further information here would need more information from you. What are you treating and why are you choosing these medications?

Genital infection?: Your doctor thought you have an infection. These antibiotics are commonly used to treat vaginal or genital infections, including STDs (especially chlamydia and trichomonas), and for bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of vaginal bacteria. Or perhaps the antibiotics were intended to prevent an infection as a complication of the abortion procedure. You'll need to ask the doctor.

Can I take metronidazole 500mg (prescribed for bv, two a day) and azithromycin (prescribed for chlamydia) at the same time? The metronidazole is supposed to be taken once in the morning and once at night and the azithromycin im supposed to take a ll 4 capsu

It: It is ok to take both, but you might want to give your stomach at least a 20 minute rest in between the Azithromycin dose and the Metronidazole dose. Both can cause stomach upset, so taking them together may make you feel pretty miserable. Taking them with food or milk can help. Good luck! And remember not to have unprotected sex for 7 days after treatment and make sure your partner has been treated, too to prevent reinfection. Good luck!

When one has a relapse of an STI and is taking azithromycin 1g od, cefixime 200mg bd & metronidazole 400mg tds...What else would you recommend? ?

Discuss with doctor: Since you do not provide the name of the infection (s) you have it is impossible to recommend anything. It sounds as if you are being given a large number of antibiotics and do not know why, talk to your doctor.

I've already taken 5 days of metronidazole and 1 injection of ceftriaxone for suspected PID. SX still haven't gone. Should I take Azithromycin? No STI

See your Gyn...: PID most frequently starts as a sexually transmitted infection that spreads to the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries and surrounding organs. It is usually treated with a combination of Cefoxitin and Doxycycline. Rocephin (ceftriaxone) and Azithromycin would be a good alternative. See your GYN for guidance in your specific case. Best wishes.

Yesterday, I had protected sex with a sex worker. However I could see some blister near her private parts. Should I get pep for hpv or other diseases. And for bacterial & yeast can I take azithromycin 1mg + metronidazole 2 g?

Yesterday, I had protected sex with a sex worker. However I could see some blister near her private parts. Should I get pep for hpv or other diseases. And for bacterial & yeast can I take azithromycin 1mg + metronidazole 2 g?

Probably not: For specific advise consult your physician. Use of a condom would make it less likely to have contracted HSV. Same for gonorrhea, HIV and Trichomonas. Testing for HSV isn't helpful as there is nothing to cure it and no treatment indicated in absence of symptoms. No treatment indicated for Candida (yeast) or Bacterial Vaginosis as male contacts don't need Rx. Only visit sex workers certified STD free
