It is very effective so there's usually no need to have a follow-up test to make sure it has worked. However, if you are under 25, it is recommended that you have a follow-up test one month after treatment.
How does Azithromycin work?
Azithromycin is a commonly used treatment for the bacterial infection chlamydia. It works by stopping bacterial cells from creating proteins which help them grow, spread, and survive. This allows the body’s immune system to kill off the remaining bacteria, thereby removing the infection.
Neither alcohol nor food should inhibit the effectiveness of azithromycin. If you are using other medications, check your suitability with a doctor.
How To Take Azithromycin
Azithromycin is ingested orally. It comes in a pack of two tablets. You should take both tablets together on an empty stomach. A single dose should be sufficient.
Side Effects Of Azithromycin
Side effects of Azithromycin are rare and usually mild. Potential side effects include stomach pain, nausea, diarrhoea and skin irritation. These are uncommon and should pass quickly.
While we do not offer alternative treatments for chlamydia from our website, the oral antibiotic doxycycline is just as effective in treating chlamydia, but can be less convenient as you need to take it for seven days.
