I took 2 azithromycin for an infection and threw up 30 min later. Will the antibiotics still work?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Maybe not

Although Azithromycin is rapidly absorbed after it is ingested, 30 minutes may not have been long enough to allow enough of the drug to be absorbed for it to be effective.
You should talk to your doctor about repeating the dose.
