How effective is 1 dose of azithromycin for curing Chlamydia ?
- 20 May 2013 by Stunnah
I toke 1 dose 4 tablets (250 mg each) for a total of 1000 g of Azithromycin all at once in 1 dose about a month and 2 weeks ago. I just got retested and will know in a few days to a week if the Chlamydia is cured . I am of course very anxious !
What is the cure rate for taking Azithroymcin in that dose ?
Has anyone else taken it in that dose and cured their Chlamydia or did you have to go back and take azithromycin a second time or take doxycyciline instead ?
Thank you !

This is the recommended dose. Add long as you didn't get reinfected you should be clear.

Thank you . Another thing is .. I didn't notice yellow discharge before I took Azithromycin (although I could have had it but not noticed..) However I did notice it after taking the dose about a day or 2 . So assuming I didn't have the yellow dicharge prior to taking the antibiotic , could the yellow discharge be the antibiotic didn't work and made the infection worse ?
That leads me to , If you use an antibiotic for an infection and it doesn't work to kill it does it make the infection worse or does it just make the infection resistent to the antibiotic or both ?
