Yes: Those medications can be taken together.Get a more detailed answer ›
Chlamydia treatment: Dried old blood from irritation caused by the infection. This should go away soon. If you still have these symptoms over a week, pelvic pain, or painful urination, you should be rechecked. The infection could still be lingering or you could also have a different infection that requires different treatment. Abstinence is a must during this time! ...Read more
How possible is it to have passed chlamydia to my partner that never had it if I had sex 3 days after taking 1g Zithromax ?
Possible: We usually recommend waiting 1-2 weeks before having unprotected sex after being treated for chlamydia. I recommend my patients come back in for a test of cure to confirm that the infection has resolved. It is important that all partners get treated to avoid spreading it around. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I still have a clear discharge 5 days after the 1g dose of Zithromax. How long does it take for symptoms of Chlamydia to stop?
A few more days: If "clear" discharge is an improvement (e.g. previously cloudy or colored), then no worries. It can take a week or more for chlamydia symptoms to clear entirely. Return to your doctor if it hasn't cleared after another week or so. ...Read more

I took Zithromax to treat my chlamydia but had sex the same night. My partner hasn't been tested yet. Will my Zithromax still be affective?
Probably..but: You need to have your partner treated so you don't pass the chlamydia back and forth to each other. He/she should be tested. Also you talk to your doc about being retested in a few weeks--urine tested--to be sure the Zithromax worked given that you were exposed after treatment began. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was treated for Chlamydia w 1g Zithromax is it possible that I passed it to my partner he never had it & we had unprotected sex 3days after??
I wk ago I tested + for chlamydia & took Zithromax. Current Sx is only minimal clear discharge. Is this normal? currently on 2nd dose of Zithromax.
Give it more time: It often takes a week or more for chlamydia symptoms to clear up entirely. If your discharge was previously colored or in larger amount, i.e. if "minimal clear discharge" is an improvement, you didn't need the second dose of azithromycin. Just sit tight for a few more days and see your doctor if it's still not back to normal. However, all people with chlamydia should be retested after 3 months. ...Read more

We got treated for chlamydia, with a one day dose of zithromax. We had sex 5 days after he took his meds, instead of a week.How likly is reinfection?
Watch and see: If you want odds, see your bookie. Otherwise, wait to see if your symptoms return. Was this just a test to see if you can get away with 2 less days than the doctor recommended? There is usually a good reason for the recommendations that are made. If symptoms return, retest and retreat. ...Read more
Given Zithromax to treat Chlamydia over a month ago. Haven't had sex since then, and had another test done 2 days ago. Why did I test positive again?
Persistent infection: Azithromycin (Zithromax®) is not perfect against chlamydia; it fails to cure the infection up to 2-3% of the time. It appears to be random. However, recent research has learned that in some people, chlamydia may persist in the intestinal tract. You need retreatment, preferably with 7 days of doxycycline. (This assumes you indeed haven't had sex and could not have been reinfected.) ...Read more
I took a 500mg zithromax pill at 1am yesterday and had unprotected sex with my partner who has chlamydia also and took another pill midnight and one a?
Chlamydia treatment: Proper treatment for chlamydia is 1 gram (1000 mg) azithromycin (Zithromax) in a single dose; you should have taken both pills at once. And you should not be having sex with an untreated partner! Probably all will be OK, but to be most safe I would advise that you ask your doctor for another 500 mg pill and take 2 at once; make sure your partner is treated; and no sex for at least a week. ...Read more

But, in terms of prostate infection, in particular, the symptoms of prostatism include deep pelvic discomfort, discomfort while sitting, and prostate tenderness on rectal exam, besides burning urination. Prostatitis may need longer treatment than urethritis/uti. ...Read more
