I took 1 dose of 4 tablets (250 mg each) for a total of 1000g 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 doxycycline instead ?
This is the recommended dose. As 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 ?

Hopefully this response will help some people. Before treatment, I had a milky white discharge, as well as irritation / burning on urination. I went to a clinic and got 1g total (2 500mg pills) of azithromycin, which I took there on a Friday afternoon. I did not get much relief over the next day, but by day 2 the discharge was more puss than milky white. Day 3 morning there was still a little puss in the morning, but less irritation. Day 4 morning (this morning) there was just a TINY bit of puss discharge.
Everything I've read says that chlamydia has a 2-3 day life cycle in the body, and so expecting everything to be all clear in just a day or two is unrealistic. I keep feeling better and better, with less and less discharge (nothing during the day now by day 4) that I do hope I'm cured.

Hi, I'm new to this. This Thursday that passed, my soon to be husband slept with a really nasty girl who supposedly had std. he slept with her Thursday early morning and than with me around 6am in the morning. I found out Thursday evening around 5-6pm I took both of us straight to the clinic at 430-5 pm on Friday! We were given a shot and a drink. How long does it take to cure up.

Not entirely sure, I was just diagnosed with it I actually had no idea I had it and I must have had it for a very long time talking literal years I'm probably sterile right now. I also gave it to my gf unknowingly I didn't find out I had it until she found out she had it basically. The dr gave her 2 pills 1 1000mg and 1 800 mg at the same time with food, it's now been 2 days and shes still in constant pain with a fever and apparently in so much pain she can barely sleep. I was wondering how long it takes, she must have contracted it from me about 2 months ago but symptoms only started showing in the last week.
My Dr on the other hand gave me doxycycline instead, 2 100mg pills /day for 7 days, I also haven't noticed much change if any.

I sure hope you didn't take 1000g. 1000mg = 1g
Yes you should be fine

Im paranoid as hell, I don’t sleep around. I’ve had the same sex partner for 10 years. He is the father to my kids and has played me more times then I can count. He gave me HPV in the pass and now I’ve tested positive for chlamydia. I left him back in September and just recently in March 2018 I had a drunk night and sleep with him. I was given 2 pills which equals 1000mg and I hope that I can be cured so I can put my mind at ease and move the hell on with my life.

I had to take a second dose in powder form, the pills didn't work the first time. An I just took it yesterday, so I hope it works, it was nasty an immediately upsetted my stomach, I had to take it for chlamydia. That I didn't know I had because I didn't have any symptoms. An I got it from my ex 3 months ago, that was the last person I was with. So I hope this works, Last time I had it was about 4 years ago. I'm so glad its treatable.
