If you took a 5 day dosage of zithromax for an infection other than chlamydia, would it cure chlamydia? The dosage was 500 mg on day 1 followed by 250 mg on the next 4 days. I know the standard recommended dosage is 1gm all at one time however I have read on different web pages that the 5 day dosage is a recommended dosage.

Hi

Taking Zithromax (Azithromycin) over 4 days will probably not cure Chlamydia.

You need to take 1 gm of Zithromax all at once to be sure that the Chlamydia is properly treated.

Check out our clinic finder If you need help finding a place to go for treatment.
