In brief: 6 pills same?

Actually to treat chlamydia you need 1g of azythromycin.
4 x 250mg of azithromycin. When treating chlamydia its a good idea to also treat gonorrhea concurrently. Your doctor may have treated you for both. Your partner may have received just 1g of Azithromycin and was not treated for gonorrhea!
