Buy Azithromycin 500 mg for chlamydia in the UK

Azithromycin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic from the macrolide or ketolide class (like erythromycin, roxithromycin, and clarithromycin).

It works by stopping the growth of bacteria, which are responsible for infections. Azithromycin 500 mg or 250 mg (brand names: Zithromax, Azasite) is commonly prescribed to treat:

  • Genital chlamydia (STDs) in both men and women.
  • Skin and soft tissue infections (although it's not always the first-line treatment for these).
  • Other infections like ear infections (otitis media), sinusitis, strep throat, pneumonia, and traveler's diarrhea.
  • Azithromycin isn't recommended for infected burn wounds.
  • Don't use azithromycin if it caused liver problems before.

Azithromycin dosage for chlamydia?

Take Azithromycin or any kind of antibiotics as directed by your doctor. It is an acid-stable antibiotic, so you can take it with or without food. If taken on an empty stomach and causes discomfort, eating some food may help.

For treating genital chlamydia with Azithromycin, the suggested dose is 1 gram (1000mg) to be taken on day one, followed by 500mg daily for the next two days.

You will need a total of 4 tablets of Azithromycin 500mg for 3 days to complete this longer course. It can be taken in the morning or at night.

⚠️ New dose: Following updated national guidance for Chlamydia treatment.

Azithromycin vs Doxycycline for Chlamydia

Both Azithromycin 500mg/250mg and Doxycycline 100mg are proven antibiotics commonly used to treat chlamydia. They work by stopping the growth of bacteria and are typically prescribed for uncomplicated chlamydial infections.

Doctors generally prescribe Doxycycline as the first-line treatment for chlamydia infection. However, Azithromycin can be an option if someone can't take Doxycycline or other similar antibiotics (Tetracycline antibiotics).

⚠️ If you experience any signs of an allergic reaction, such as difficulty breathing or speaking, swelling of the tongue, or a rash, you should stop taking this medication immediately.


  • Azithromycin Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

    While some studies on animals and limited data from pregnant women indicate Azithromycin might be safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding (there is no clear evidence of harm to the fetus at moderate doses). 

    However, Azithromycin is not categorized by the US FDA for use during pregnancy.

    Your doctor may suggest another antibiotic (amoxicillin or erythromycin) that is more suitable for the severity of your infection. So, always consult a doctor before taking Azithromycin while pregnant or breastfeeding.

    ⚠️ During pregnancy, azithromycin 1 g (1000 mg) as a single dose is recommended to treat chlamydia.

  • Can I have sex during the Azithromycin treatment period for chlamydia?

    No, It’s Not Recommended. Azithromycin won't protect you from sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like chlamydia. Even if you're being treated for chlamydia (usually a single dose) with Azithromycin.

    Having sex during this time can still spread the infection to your partner(s) because it can take up to 7 days to clear the infection completely.

    To be safe, use condoms consistently and correctly every time you have sex, even for at least one week after finishing your Azithromycin course.

    If there's any confusion about a condom breaking or potential infection, both partners must get tested for chlamydia and seek treatment if necessary.

    The CDC recommends undergoing testing approximately three months after the treatment of the initial infection.

  • Do I need to avoid any food or drink while taking Azithromycin?

    No, There are no specific foods or drinks that you need to avoid while taking azithromycin. You can eat and drink normally during the course of treatment.

  • Can I drink alcohol while taking Azithromycin?

    While it's not advised, you can drink alcohol moderately while taking azithromycin. However, if azithromycin makes you dizzy, it's better to skip alcohol as it could make it worse.

    Also, alcohol might make azithromycin less effective, meaning the infection might not completely clear up.
