What is Azithromycin?

Azithromycin is an antibiotic used to treat a range of bacterial infections including pneumonia, Lyme disease and chlamydia.

How does Azithromycin work?

Azithromycin inhibits the growth of the bacteria which causes the infection. In the case of chlamydia, the bacteria is called chlamydia trachomatis.

In order for these bacteria to grow, it needs to create a protein. Azithromycin stops this protein from being made so that the bacteria can no longer multiply. Once the bacteria can no longer thrive, the immune system attacks the remaining bacteria and kills off the infection.

How to take Azithromycin

For the treatment of chlamydia, you need to take 1000 mg (two 500mg pills) of Azithromycin an hour or more before food or 2 hours after food.

You do not need to take any more medication following this dosage.

You should always complete the prescribed course of antibiotics, even if you start to feel better before the course is complete. Stopping treatment early could cause the infection to return or affect how well you respond to antibiotics in the future.
