What does Azithromycin do?
Azithromycin is an antibiotic used in the treatment of various infections, including chlamydia. Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic. It works by preventing bacteria from making essential proteins. This stops the growth of bacteria and causes the bacteria to die.
How is the Azithromycin taken?
You should take Azithromycin according to the prescribing doctor’s instructions. The dosage varies for different infections and the age of the patient. For the treatment of Chlamydia, the patient is usually advised to take 1g of in a single dose. You should only ever take antibiotic treatment exactly as prescribed. Failing to complete a course of antibiotics can result in antibiotic resistance, which can have dangerous repercussions for yourself and others. (Source)
How effective is Azithromycin for Chlamydia?

What Azithromycin dosage do I need to take?
For the treatment of Chlamydia a doctor will usually recommend you take a single 1g tablet of Azithromycin. In some cases, a doctor may prescribe the antibiotic in other amounts. For effective treatment, always follow the doctor’s instructions exactly when taking antibiotics.
Can you buy Azithromycin over the counter?

Existing research suggests that Azithromycin is safe to take during pregnancy and will not result in fetal abnormalities or adverse outcomes. If you are pregnant, it is always worth checking that no new research has been undertaken causing this advice to be changed.

How do I know if I have Chlamydia?
Chlamydia can often be symptomless, especially in women. Therefore, the only way to know for sure if you have Chlamydia is to get tested. This can be done as a urine test or a swab. You can get tested by your doctor, at a sexual health clinic or using a home test kit which you can order online.
Symptoms of chlamydia can be different in men and women. In women, symptoms may include:
Abnormal discharge (yellowish or with a strong smell)
Abdominal pain & fever
Vaginal itching or burning
Bleeding between periods
Pain during urination
More frequent urination
Swelling around the vagina or anus
In men, Chlamydia symptoms may include:
Pain during urination
Discharge from the penis
Painful or swollen testicles (one or both)
Burning or itching at the opening of their penis
Will the chlamydia infection come back after treatment?
Antibiotics are effective in curing chlamydia, but chlamydia in some cases does return following treatment. It is thought that the chlamydia infection hides away in the gut, re-emerging at a later date. However, most people who get another chlamydia infection after treatment are reinfected by a partner, infected by another sexual partner, or they did not take the medications correctly in the first place. To reduce the chances of recurrence, always read the patient information leaflet and ensure you follow the doctor’s instructions exactly. You should also use barrier methods of contraception i.e. condoms and ensure that your partners also get tested and receive treatment if required.
Can I still have sex when taking Azithromycin?
You and your partner should avoid all sex without a condom until both of you have completed your course of treatment. If you have been prescribed the single 1g dose of Azithromycin, you should avoid sex without a condom for 1 week following when you first took the tablets.
Chlamydia Treatment Dosage
For the treatment of chlamydia, take all four 25mg tablets together as a single dose as soon as possible after being diagnosed with chlamydia. Please be aware that Azithromycin is not a preventative medication and you will still be contagious until one week after taking the single dose. In some cases, you may be prescribed an alternative chlamydia treatment. This may involve taking just two tablets together as a single dose, or taking two Doxycycline capsules for one week. Always follow the prescribing doctor’s instructions and ensure that you also read the patient information leaflet supplied with your medication. If you experience nausea or vomiting side effects, you may want to take an anti-sickness medication, such as Avomine, to help reduce fluid loss and discomfort.
