Azithromycin

Have you tested positive for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, ureaplasma urealyticum or mycoplasma genitalium? Cure the infection in just five days with Azithromycin.

  • Works faster than other antibiotics
  • Effective as a single one-off dosage

Azithromycin is the generic version of the antibiotic treatment Zithromax. It’s what is known as a macrolide antibiotic, which makes it effective at treating a wide number of bacterial infections. Azithromycin tablets can be used to effectively treat the different types of bacteria that cause bronchitis, pneumonia, tonsillitis, sinusitis, skin infections such as an abscesses or boils, and sexually transmitted infections such as penile-vaginal chlamydia, gonorrhoea, ureaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma genitalium.

Azithromycin as a treatment

Azithromycin prevents bacteria from producing the proteins that are required to help them reproduce. If the bacteria can’t replicate and grow, it won’t be able to overpower your immune system, which means that your body will be better able to defend itself and ultimately destroy the bacteria.

Benefits of Azithromycin

Azithromycin tablets are a fast-acting generic antibiotic treatment that is well tolerated and can successfully treat a wide number of bacterial infections, including the potentially serious and uncomfortable sexually transmitted infections chlamydia, gonorrhoea, ureaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma genitalium. Azithromycin stays in the system for longer so it’s a particularly convenient way to treat chlamydia, gonorrhoea, ureaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma genitalium, because it only requires a short-term high dose treatment. It also gets to work faster than most other antibiotic treatments, with most people seeing results within three to five days after they start taking it.

Side effects

Azithromycin rarely tends to cause side effects, because it doesn’t have to be used for as long as most other antibiotic treatments and your body usually adjust to the medication pretty quickly. The most common side effects include a stomach upset, stomach cramps, nausea or diarrhoea. These effects don’t normally last and will go away as soon as your body has become used to the active ingredient.

If you experience any of the above-mentioned side effects for a prolonged period of time, or experience anything more serious such as sudden difficulty breathing, severe diarrhoea, a rapid and irregular heartbeat, skin rashes or flaking or lowering of your blood pressure, you should speak to a doctor straight away.

Taking Azithromycin

Most people can use Azithromycin tablets for the treatment of bacterial infections; however there are cases where it’s not advised to take it. It’s not recommended that you take this treatment if you are allergic to its active ingredient, have liver problems or are taking ergot/ergotamine (to treat migraines), warfarin (to prevent blood clots), cyclosporine (usually used after an organ transplant), digoxin (used to treat heart failure), theophylline (used to treat asthma) or terfenadine (treatment for allergies.

You should inform your doctor if you have kidney problems, a heart condition or diabetes or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as they may need to adjust your dose if it’s not working for you.

Dosages

Azithromycin can be taken with or without food; however you should wait an hour or two hours after taking antacid medication. Always make sure you swallow the tablets whole when you take them. Generally, a doctor will recommend that you take Azithromycin as follows for the treatment of STIs. Penile-vaginal chlamydia and ureaplasma urealyticum can be treated in a single 1000mg dose (taken as two 500mg tablets); while successful treatment of a gonorrhoea infection requires a combination of Azithromycin and Cefixime for effective treatment. Non-specific urethritis and mycoplasma genitalium can be treated over a course of five days with two 250mg tablets on day one, followed by one 250mg tablet per day for four days.

After finishing your treatment, you should wait two weeks and take another STI test to make sure that you are completely free of the bacteria. If your infection doesn’t go away or a new one develops, speak to your doctor.
