Okay, well I'm an idiot, and took my dosage of Azithromycin wrong. I could have swore the receptionist at my gynecologist's office said that I needed to take 2 500mg tablets daily (meaning I would take one when I got it and one the next day), but after I did some research and learned that my partner just got 2 pills to take at once and a shot, I looked at the pill bottle again, just to be sure (even though it was way too late, I already waited 24hrs to take the other dose), and the pill bottle even said to take it all at once. I'm not sure if I read it wrong because of what the receptionist said or what, but I wanted to know if waiting 24hrs to take the second dose will affect anything. Do I need to have the gyne send another script? Will it still work??? I'm worried that I messed up. I want to get rid of this ASAP so that I can be clean again and have intercourse with my boyfriend again! Please help me!
FOXGIRL; call the doctors office and ask the NURSE OR THE DOCTOR tell them what you did and if it well still work like it should have if you had taken them together no your not an IDIOT people do stuff like this all the time Just remember when you pick up a new prescription always read the bottle and do it at the pharmacy because you can always ask the pharmacist to get the right answer or you might even give your pharmacist a call.And see if she or he knows if it's okay this antibiotic has a long life it is working in you for 7 to 10 days the benefit is you don't have to take pills for 10 days so you might be okay are you both going back in to be rechecked when your done.Ask the doctors office if you need to be rechecked if they say taking them on 2 different days made that much difference please call them today.
