Common Questions and Answers about Azithromycin dosage to treat chlamydia


Avatar n tn its my 2mo and 2wks day of this infection. i tried quinnolones and the recent was doxycycline but im not well yet. what other med shud i take?
Avatar m tn I just want to know if anyone has taken Azithromycin (Z Pack) 5 day dosage summing up to 1.5g to treat Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis? 1st day is 500mg and from 2nd day to 5th day is 250mg. If you have tried this, was it successful? From what I understand most dosages are 1g in one dose to cure at least Chlamydia. Let me know if you have any info on how effective this 5 days dosage would be. Thanks.
Avatar n tn H, I think I have contracted throat gonorrhea that has also traveled to the eyes. I don't know about chlamydia. What would the dosage be for azithromycin 1000mg, 1500 mg or 2000mg and would it be all at once. Thanks for your help.
Avatar m tn I actually did take this myself on Friday, but my partner who did not listen to the instructions on dosage, took the above mentioned dosage. So basically, 1.0grams in a 8hr window, followed by 250mg 24 hrs later and 250mg 24 hrs later to that. I still feel a tiny bit tingling feeling and can see a slight discharge. how long do you think it would take to normally clear up after you take the 1.0grams of azithromycin. In fact, come to think of it.
Avatar n tn Are you trying to self medicate?? if so you need to see your doctor first, you need to make sure you do or do not have it and to find out whats really going on. Self medicating can take away from learning whats really going on. I strongly suggest you seeing your doctor first.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend an I both tested positive for chlamyida, I was prescribed 2 500 mg pills called azithromycin & was told to take them both at the same time & wait one week to save sex. My boyfriend was prescribed doxy-cycl mono 100 mg an told to take one every 12 hours for ten days. I started my treatment before he did, after a week of not having sex he gave me oral, He still had three days of medication left.
Avatar n tn Is it possible that after taking 1g of Azithromycin/Zythromax Chlamydia ISN'T cured/eradicated? What are the chances of this dosage not working, which was prescribed by a doctor?
Avatar n tn Both medications are effective but take time to start clearing up the infection. Im at work so I dont have to much time to get into detail, but limit drinking and no sex of any kind and take the meds............there both good.
Avatar m tn I tested postive for chlamydia in mexico they prescribe me a azithromycin by pfizer but in a 900mg (200mg/5ml) It seems like this would be more likely for a child. I have been reading and the effective dosage is 1g. so my question is will this be effective enough to cure me and is it the wrong dosage or did they give me the wrong precription?
Avatar n tn the nurse decided to treat both of us anyway with azithromycin right away i noticed that i am bleeding alot between periods, although i have not yet had a full period and this has never happen before, this isnt listed as a side affect, is it just because the azithromycin is reacting with the oral contraceptive or is it something more serious?
101028 tn?1419606604 Turns out the 1 time dose of azithromycin most of us are given for chlamydia treatment is also covering syphilis which is very good news since we can't test for syphilis as early as chlamydia and gonorrhea. For those who have a fear of needles this is also good news :) J Infect Dis. 2010 Jun 1;201(11):1729-35. A phase III equivalence trial of azithromycin versus benzathine penicillin for treatment of early syphilis.
Avatar m tn Is there a difference between azithromycin 250mg and 500mg, even if they are added up to the same exact dosage? Would 1000mg of azithromycin (from a zpack) cure chlamydia is my question.
Avatar n tn 1. Is my infection with chlamydia going to be treated with this dosage of Azithromycin?Is this gonna be effective? 2.How did I contract the chlamydia if I had only protected with condom sex?Can Chlamydia transmit through kissing or cunnilingus? 3.What are the chances for me to develop pseudomembranous colitis after 1 gram of Azitro?Are they high?What should I do to prevent that? 4.What are my chances to develop tachycardia or other arythmias and does Azithromycin prolong the QT interval?
Avatar m tn my girlfriend and i both took 4x250mg azithromycin to treat chlamydia 15 days ago. we waited 10 days (recommended was 7) before resuming sexual intercourse (unprotected). i had mild burning in the penis before taking the medication and still have mild burning, and now some slight pain in the lower abdomen. retesting is booked for 15 days from now. i am wondering if these symptoms are normal post medication or if the medication hasn't worked?
Avatar m tn I read on this site it can be easily treated and cured with antibiotics, which may be administered in a single dose or taken over the course of a week. I should be able to buy Azithromycin over the counter here. Is that the right stuff to use and can you tell me the dosage please, or let me know the right antibiotic to buy.. Please help..
Avatar f tn I took 1g azithromycin to treat chlamydia, and my gf took it 24 hours later. 36 hours after she took it, we had unprotected sex (last night). Can I take 1g more this morning to prevent a possible reinfection?
Avatar m tn Chlamydia Treatment Hi dear , It is very hard to treat chlamydia. I have been suffering from this disease from last three years. Had many treatments of Antibiotics, herbal meds etc no improvement as on date. I thing we have to die with it now.
Avatar f tn In December went for a yearly and food out I had chlamydia with no symptoms. So my doctor prescribed azithromycin 1 gram. Took this dose and noticed some discharge and pelvic pain which seemed to go away 2-3 days after treatment. HAD NO SEX One month later STILL NO SEX...Intense itching began, along with discharge and severe pelvic pain. Went back and got tested for ALL STDS. Only Chlamydia came back. Was prescribed 14 days of 2xs per day Doxycycline. First eight days no change.
Avatar n tn So recurrent urethritis is nearly never due to gonorrhea or chlamydia, unless the patient was reinfected. Mycoplasma are harder to eradicate for a few reasons. Many strains are resistant to antibiotics, especially tetracycline resistance. This means doxycycline, a commonly prescribed drug, will often fail in treatment. Resistance rates of 50% have been reported for ureaplasma and doxycycline. M hominis is resistant to erythromycin, azithromycin, and clarithromycin.
Avatar n tn I had unprotected sex with a female and about 6 days after developed symptoms of chlamydia. Went to the doctor and was given 1g dosage of azithromycin and another dose of suprax and i took both of them immediately. About 5 days after this, my ex-gf and I decided to get back together. We did not have penetrative sex and as far as i could tell there was no direct genital to genital contact, but i did notice that there was a little bit of semen on her stomach area.
Avatar n tn She also provided me with a swab to take a sample myself when discharge was present. She did not provide treatment as she was not sure what to treat for. The next morning I swabbed the morning discharge and dropped it to the lab. My GP followed up two days later and stated there was nothing STI related that came back from the swabs (stated there was a culture of influenza present?) .
Avatar n tn 3 days might be short for the flagyl to work, I'd give it more like a week to see if it was effective. If your Chlamydia infection is still persisting, an excellent choice here would be Clarithromycin (Biaxin is the brand name). It has higher activity than Azithromycin, and you could take up to 1g per day for 14 days as a dosage. This is quite a high dose, but in your case it might be just what you need to clear your infection.
Avatar m tn This sensation, although nowhere near as bad as what I experienced when I was diagnosed, continued to persist after treatment. Approx. 10 days after I took the Azithromycin, I went back to the doc to get this checked out. I have not had any sex since my first diagnosis, and a second urinalysis came back negative for infection, ghonnorea and chlamydia. The slight burning in the tip when I pee in the morning is still there.
Avatar n tn hi,can i take azithromycin an cefixne together to treat chlamydia and gonnorrhea at the same time,if so what dosage,i am curently working in china,and i would like to self treat myself before i can access a doctor out of this country,please could you advise me
Avatar n tn And I don't suggest self medicating even if you were infected as you don't know what to take and how much to take... And IF you did get something the dosage would not have cleared up Chlamydia and doesn't treat other STDs. But i wouldn't worry as you had protected sex.
Avatar m tn Hello, I have recently been diagnosed with mild NGU although I am still waiting for my Chlamydia and Gonorrhea results. I have been given one single dose of azithromycin (1 g) . It has been four days now, and when i urinate there is still a burning sensation. I have not had any discharge at all. Before (Hours before) I have the burning feeling when I urinate, I also have a feeling of pressure/pain at my pelvis. 1.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor 3 days ago and they gave me one time dosage of 4 tablets of Azithromycin. It's been a feel days, the discomfort is gone, but there is still alot of discharge, especially in the morning. Is there a possibility that the antibiotics didn't work? How do I get ready of it?
