What is Azithromycin (Zithromax)?

Azithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic available in tablet form that is used to treat bacterial infections such as penile/vaginal sexually transmitted infections (STIs). This includes the following:

Azithromycin is a safe and effective short-term treatment and in most cases a short one-day dose or five-day dose treatment is enough to treat and cure these bacterial infections, preventing any future complications as a result. The high dosage (250mg and 500mg depending on the STI) also ensures that any uncomfortable symptoms are taken care of almost straight away. The medication prevents the infection from spreading further by affecting the bacteria's ability to make proteins and a medical professional will advise the recommended dosage during the consultation.

Azithromycin tablets are available to buy in the UK either through prescription or here at euroClinix after completing a quick online consultation. We offer a free consultation process where you will be asked to answer questions about your health and medical history. The consultation will be treated confidentially and will be reviewed by one of our doctors. If the doctor has established that this medicine is safe for you to use, you will be able to purchase Azithromycin to treat your condition. You can buy Azithromycin online in either a 250mg or 500mg dosage.

Azithromycin is the generic medicine and available under the brand name Zithromax or Zmax.

How does Azithromycin work?

This medication works by hindering the spread of the bacteria so that it can't spread, which allows your body's immune system the additional time to fight the infection off quickly and effectively. It does this by entering the bacterial cell and influencing its inner peptide activity and protein production, which are both activities that are important to keep the cells alive.

This medicine is one of the most convenient treatments for chlamydia and other STIs because it stays in the system for longer than most other antibiotic treatments, so courses of this medicine are short and less intensive. It works faster and most people tend to see results within three to five days of taking the first pill, compared to other treatments that can take from seven to ten days.

Taking Azithromycin

Azithromycin tablets are taken in different doses depending on the condition it is required to treat and cure, but in all cases, the tablets instruction given to you in the patient leaflet and by your doctor should be followed to treat the infection fully.

  • Should be taken on an empty stomach with or without water.
  • For penile/vaginal chlamydia; In general, a five-day treatment course with a single 500mg dose taken on the first day, then 250mg tablets taken once daily for four days is required.
  • For ureaplasma urealyticum; A single dose of two 500mg tablets is taken in one day.
  • For the treatment of non-specific urethritis or mycoplasma genitalium; Two 500mg tablets are taken in a single dose.
  • For gonorrhoea; A single dose of Cefixime with Azithromycin is usually prescribed to treat this particular infection, however at euroClinix, we advise the first choice of treatment for gonorrhoea, which is the injection administered at the sexual health clinic or GUM clinic. Some doctor's surgeries may also stock the gonorrhoea injection; however do double check before booking.

You should wait at least two weeks after completing your treatment before conducting another STI test to check whether the treatment has been successful or not.

Azithromycin 250mg / Azithromycin 500mg

Azithromycin is available to buy in two doses, both clinically effective at treating and curing many bacterial STIs. Azithromycin 500mg tablets are usually taken initially over the first couple of days. This is a strong dosage to hamper the infection most effectively. You may then be advised to take the 250mg dose for up to seven days after to ensure the infection is 100% cleared.

On completing your online consultation at euroClinix, our doctors will advised you on the correct dosage to take and when. You can also refer to the guidelines regarding how to take Azithromycin and the dosages above, and the patient leaflet attached at the bottom of this page and within your order when it is delivered.

Azithromycin precautions

The vast majority of people can buy Azithromycin online for the treatment of chlamydia, non-specific urethritis, ureaplasma urealyticum and mycoplasma genitalium. For the treatment of gonorrhoea, the recommended medication is currently the injection administered by a medical professional. However, if your doctor advises you to take oral medication, Azithromycin must be taken together with Cefixime for effective treatment.

Although it's relatively safe for most people to use to treat and cure bacterial STIs, there are certain health conditions with which it's not advisable to take this medication, such as liver disease, kidney disease, myasthenia gravis, a heart rhythm disorder or a history of long QT syndrome. It may also not be safe to take it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Some medications may also influence or be influenced by Azithromycin, so make sure that you mention any herbal, over-the-counter or prescription medications you are taking when you do your online consultation.

Please note that the manufacturer of this medication may differ from that shown on the image above, but the ingredients, benefits and possible side effects of the medication will be the same.

Azithromycin side effects

Although side effects when taking Azithromycin tablets are rare, they can still occur. However, they are normally quite mild and pass relatively quickly, especially as the course of the medication isn't taken for long. The most common side effects are mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation, stomach pain or upset, dizziness, tiredness, headaches, vaginal itching or discharge, mild itching or a skin rash. If any of these effects become bothersome or you experience an allergic reaction to the medication, speak to a doctor straight away.
