Hi, i'm 8 weeks pregnant. I went to see a doctor 2 weeks back for an infection. He gave me moxypen-250 but it didn't work, then i just went to the clinic and explained my situation. The sister gave me azithromycin. She said it's safe to use during pregnancy. Is it safe to take 4 tablets at the same time? I don't want to take any risks. Please help. ## The U.S. FDA considers Azithromycin to be safe during pregnancy, so you should follow the dosing instructions you were given.

Taking 1000 mg the first day? and the rest one at a time a day after that? ## Yes, it contains the active ingredient Azithromycin and the package you mentioned is used just like a Z-Pak, 2 the first day, then one each day after, until you finish them. This antibiotic may cause side effects, such as nausea, drowsiness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Learn more Azithromycin details here.

azitromicina 500mg question
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed by my doctor to take 1000mg at one time for an infection. I got the pills in MX and each bottle says 500mg and contains 6 capsules. Is each pill 500mg or all 6 pills together 500mg? Do I take it all at once or how do I administer these? ## Hello, Kristy! How are you? That means that each pill contains 500mgs of Azithromycin, so two would equal the 1,000mgs that your doctor prescribed and you should take it according to his dosing schedule. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi.. I went to the clinic because my vigina was itchy and i started developing pimples and the cracks... and then when I got to the clinic the doctor didn't check me he just said I have an STI and he gave me 2 tablets of Austell-Azithromycin and i drank them while I was at the clinic and he also gave me Doxytet to drink at home and he also said I should stop drinking and eating diary products... Any advise?? ## Hello, Lady Phee! How are you? These are both antibiotics that are used to treat bacterial infections, so they can help with some STIs.
