Medical information

Azithromycin for chlamydia

For background information about chlamydia please see chlamydia information page.

  • Avoid any sexual contact for 7 days after taking Azithromycin, until no longer infectious.
  • People with a positive chlamydia test and their sexual partners should be treated at the same time if possible.
  • Chlamydia tests take 6 weeks to go negative after chlamydia has been successfully treated.

Alternative antibiotic for chlamydia

Chlamydia can also be treated with a week long course of an alternative antibiotic doxycycline.

Doxycycline is an equally effective treatment and is suitable for people with allergy to azithromycin.

Azithromycin side effects

Serious side effects are unusual, the most common are stomach upset, nausea and diarrhoea.

For details about azithromycin see the patient information leaflet supplied with the tablets.

In the unlikely event that vomiting occurs within an hour of taking azithromycin the treatment should be repeated.
