I took 1 dose of 4 tablets (250 mg each) for a total of 1000g of azithromycin all at once in 1 dose about a month and 2 weeks ago. how long does it take 1000 g of Azithromycin taken 1 time to get out of your system ? Reason I ask if because I just got my test results back saying I am now negative for Chlamydia . I just got retested and will know in a few days to a week if the Chlamydia is cured. What is the cure rate for taking azithroymcin in that dose? So Im hoping the antibiotic didn't give me a false negative . I didn't notice yellow discharge before I took Azithromycin (although I could have had it but not noticed..) However I did notice it after taking the dose about a day or 2 . Has anyone else taken it in that dose and cured their Chlamydia or did you have to go back and take azithromycin a second time or take doxycycline instead ? Im wondering , even though it says that I tested negative after taking the antibiotic if I should get retested 1 more time to make sure i really am negative for Chlamydia ? Also , I took Flagyl 500 mg twice a day for 3 days and 1 dose the 4th day for BV/Trich but stopped because of side effects if I want to get retested for Chlamydia tomorrow , would the Flagyl still be in my system by tomorrow and effect the outcome of the results for my Chlamydia ? So assuming I didn't have the yellow dicharge prior to taking the antibiotic , could the yellow discharge be the antibiotic didn't work and made the infection worse ? And how common is a false negative for Chlamydia after taking Azithromycin ? That leads me to , If you use an antibiotic for an infection and it doesn't work to kill it does it make the infection worse or does it just make the infection resistent to the antibiotic or both ? I know you're anxious but every situation isn't guarantee to be the same. And all honestly in person is the best advice rather than online. You just don't know who you're talking to. If u use anti biotic and it doesn't work, then that means that either the dose wasn't strong enough and or the bacteria might have become resistant to it.

Geographic areas where trachoma is hyperendemic require repeated mass distributions because infection has been shown to return after a single treatment ( We obtained ethical approval from the Committee on Human Research at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and from the National Ethical Clearance Committee of the Ethiopian Science and Technology Agency. Lack of Macrolide Resistance in Chlamydia trachomatis after Mass Azithromycin Distributions for Trachoma. Lack of Macrolide Resistance in Chlamydia trachomatis after Mass Azithromycin Distributions for Trachoma. Antimicrobial treatments were distributed every 6 months to 24 randomly selected villages in the Gurage zone in Ethiopia. Despite this encouraging study, investigations of the long-term impact of multiple treatments on antimicrobial drug susceptibility are needed. C., Schachter, J., Moncada, J., Zhou, Z., House, J., & Lietman, T. These authors observed a slight increase in the median MIC after treatment but found no resistant strains. Lack of Macrolide Resistance in Chlamydia trachomatis after Mass Azithromycin Distributions for Trachoma. Mass azithromycin treatments have been effective in reducing this infection (). To control endemic trachoma, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends communitywide distribution of antimicrobial agents, along with surgery and improved hygiene. Persons 1 year of age were offered single-dose oral azithromycin (1 g for adults or 20 mg/kg for children) as directly observed treatment.
A couple of months ago, I was diagnosed with Chlamydia. I took the Azithromycin that I was given, and went back for another check a couple of weeks later, because I was still getting symptoms. The second set of swabs showed that I still had Chlamydia, and was this time given a 7 day course of Doxycycline to take. About 2 weeks after this, I was hospitalised for severe abdominal pain, leaving me curled up in a ball on the ground wailing. More swabs were taken, and the cause of the pain was Chlamydia (attacking fallopian tubes), which had not been cured by the Azithromycin or the Doxycycline. The Doctor at A&E gave me Metronidazole (14 Days), Doxycycline (10 Days) and Amoxicillin (14 Days). I finished this course of antibiotics about a week and a half ago, and went in for my (hopefully) final set of swabs today. Although I've been given pretty hardcore antibiotics, I'm not entirely sure that they have worked, and I think I might still be Chlamydia positive. Hopefully will try more antibiotics or a different one. From 3 patients, 2 of whom showed evidence of clinical treatment failure with azithromycin and one of whom was the wife of a patient. All 3 isolates demonstrated multidrug resistance to doxycycline, azithromycin, and ofloxacin at concentrations 4.0 μg/m L. Recurrent disease due to relapsing infection with the same resistant isolate was documented on the basis of identical genotypes of both organisms. This first report of clinically significant multidrug-resistant , a nonmotile, gram-negative obligate intracellular bacterium, is primarily a human pathogen that causes inclusion conjunctivitis, lymphogranuloma venereum, and urogenital tract disease. Genital tract infection with infection may manifest as urethritis or epididymitis, whereas in women it often presents as cervicitis, urethritis, salpingitis, or endometritis. Asymptomatic or “silent,” chronic infection in women has been recently recognized as a significant cause of infertility . infection is the most commonly reported infectious disease in the United States.
Urogenital Chlamydia trachomatis infection remains prevalent and causes substantial reproductive morbidity. Recent studies have raised concern about the efficacy of azithromycin for the treatment. Multiple Drug-Resistant Chlamydia. these are the first reported cases of clinically significant C. trachomatis infection resistant to ofloxacin and azithromycin.
