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?

How does Azithromycin work?
Azithromycin belongs to a group of anti-bacterial medications known as macrolides. These work by preventing bacteria from multiplying, as it affects peptide activity and protein production require. When these two functions are inhibited, the infection can't stay alive and spread, leaving it vulnerable to the body's defence mechanisms. This causes the bacteria cells to die off, which then stops the infection.
How do I know if I have Chlamydia?
In many cases, chlamydia can be symptomless, which is what makes it such a prolific disease. It is estimated that around 50% of men and 70% of women do not suffer any of the associated symptoms. Therefore, it is recommended to get checked after having unprotected sex, especially if you have several partners or are with a new partner.
For those who do experience symptoms, the most common are:
- A discharge from the penis/anus or vagina
- Pain whilst urinating
- Bleeding in between periods
Cloud Pharmacy offers a discreet home STI testing which can be purchase online.
Can I still have sex whilst taking Azithromycin?
Ideally, you should abstain from sex until your chlamydia has cleared. However, if you decide to have intercourse whilst undergoing chlamydia treatment, it is important that you make your partner aware of the risks. Make sure you use a condom to help avoid transmitting the infection. If you suspect a condom has split, make sure your partner gets testing for chlamydia and that they receive the appropriate treatment if necessary.
What does Azithromycin cure?
Azithromycin is used to treat bacterial infections, including; pneumonia, bronchitis, and sexually transmitted infections, such as Chlamydia. It will also effectively treat infections of the ears, lungs, skin, sinuses, and throat. Azithromycin belongs to a class of medicines called macrolide antibiotics. It works by inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Antibiotics, like azithromycin, have no effect on viruses, so this medicine should not be used to treat colds, flu, or other types of viral infection.
Cloud Pharmacy can only prescribe azithromycin to treat chlamydia.
What happens if Chlamydia is left untreated?
It is a bad idea to leave Chlamydia untreated as it can cause serious health complications for those that are infected. In women, they can develop pelvic inflammatory disease which can cause infertility and chronic pelvic pain. If left untreated in men, chlamydia can cause persistent cystitis (UTI) and pain or inflammation in the testicles.
If this sexually transmitted disease is not treated properly then the carrier risks passing the infection to other people.
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.
