In brief: UTI

urinary infections will not typically respond to azithromycin.
Azithromycin aims at respiratory microbes.

In brief: See answer

If blue pigment gets into urine, the color is often green because the blue mixes with the yellow urochrome that's naturally present.
May be related to something in diet (e.g. Food dyes, vitamins, black licorice, asparagus) or medication (e.g. Tagamet, (cimetidine) amitriptyline, indomethacin). Azithromycin is a good antibiotic for upper respiratory illness and chlamydia/gc but not for utis.
