What is Azithromycin?
Azithromycin is one of a group of antibiotics known as macrolides, used to treat bacterial infections such as Chlamydia.
Azithromycin (also branded as Zithromax) is an STI medication that functions as an antibiotic, specifically targeting the different types of bacteria responsible for infections, chlamydia, ureaplasma urealyticum, and gonorrhoea (when combined with Cefixime).
One of the main benefits of Azithromycin is this medication's ability to be able to cure most infections in a single high dose. Taking it in a single dose also means that it's less likely to cause lasting side effects. Azithromycin is also able to treat more than one non-gonococcal infection at a time, which is extremely beneficial, as some STIs tend to flourish alongside others.
How does Azithromycin work?
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease caused by bacteria. Azithromycin works by killing the bacteria, as it contains macrolide antibiotics.
How do I use Azithromycin?
Azithromycin is a prescription-only medication. Always follow the advice of your doctor and read the patient information leaflet provided in the medication packet.
The tablets should be taken as a single daily dose (1000mg) followed by 500mg once daily for 2 days. They should be swallowed with a drink of water, with or without food.

Side effects of Azithromycin tablets aren't usual, but if they do occur, they are normally mild and don't last long, because treatment is so short. Common side effects can potentially include diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, fatigue and loss of appetite.
Contact a doctor straight away if you experience any more serious side effects, if these effects persist, or if you start developing an allergic reaction.
Azithromycin is generally well tolerated, but as with all prescription medications, it may not be right for everybody to take. So it's important that you mention to your doctor if you have any existing medical conditions or if you are currently taking any other medications that may interact badly.
- Azithromycin may not be safe for you, if you have liver disease; kidney disease; myasthenia gravis; or a heart rhythm disorder.
- People who have had jaundice or liver problems caused by taking azithromycin should consult a doctor.
- Some of the precautions you should be aware of before you buy Azithromycin tablets include:
- People who are allergic to similar drugs such as clarithromycin, erythromycin, or telithromycin should consult a doctor.
- It is advised to use caution when taking Azithromycin whilst also using blood thinners.
Azithromycin contains the active ingredient of azithromycin (as azithromycin monohydrate), in doses of either 250mg or 500mg per tablet/capsule. Athough Chlamydia is its main use,
Azithromycin can also be used to treat other ailments (as it’s an antibiotic).
If you forget to take your Azithromycin tablet then you should take it as soon as you remember. If you are taking it for longer than a single dose, and it’s nearly time for your next one then do not double up to make up for the forgotten dose.
If you take more Azithromycin than you should, then you should contact a doctor or pharmacist immediately as the effects can include hearing loss (reversible), nausea and diarrhoea.
