Azithromycin is an antibiotic that is used to treat both Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia. It involves taking a one of dose of two tablets.
Azithromycin is particularly effective because it remains in the system for long periods of time preventing recolonisation of the bacteria that causes chlamydia.
Azithromycin tablets are extremely effective because they attack the bacteria directly and remove the proteins necessary for them to survive.
The bacteria will die off naturally and because it is now weakened it can be destroyed by the body's own immune system.
Recommended dose:- 2 x Azithromycin 500mg Tablets (1000mg total) as a single dose with plenty of water.
There is no evidence to show that multiple doses are more effective than the single.
Before taking you should ascertain whether your diagnosis is chlamydia and not another infection. You can do this by going to your GP or by visiting your local sexual health clinic which can be found HERE.
