My Anxieties and Obsessiveness don't help, it's a relaxer, but sometimes it irritates the genital Area, is it normal to hurt after such a ritual? and for that manner, is it really necessary to worry that I will get an infection because my mind obsesses that it thinks i'm going to get an infection.

GENERIC NAME: azithromycin BRAND NAME: Zithromax, Zmax DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Azithromycin is a semi-synthetic macrolide antibiotic chemically related to erythromycin and clarithromycin (Biaxin). It is effective against a wide variety of bacteria such as Hemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, mycobacterium avium, and many others. Azithromycin, like all macrolide antibiotics, prevents bacteria from growing by interfering with their ability to make proteins. Due to the differences in the way proteins are made in bacteria and humans, the macrolide antibiotics do not interfere with production of proteins in humans. It is an unusual antibiotic in that it stays in the body for quite a while (has a long half-life), allowing for once a day dosing and for shorter treatment courses for most infections. The FDA approved azithromycin in November 1991. PRESCRIPTION: Yes GENERIC AVAILABLE: Yes PREPARATIONS: Tablets: 250, 500, and 600 mg. Suspension: 100 mg/ teaspoon, 200 mg/teaspoon, 167 mg/teaspoon or 1 g/packet. Powder for Injection: 500 mg. STORAGE: Tablets should be stored at room temperature between 15-30°C (59-86°F). Suspension and solution for injection should be kept between 5-30°C (41-86°F). PRESCRIBED FOR: Azithromycin is effective against susceptible bacteria causing otitis media (infection of the middle ear), tonsillitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, and sinusitis. It also is effective against several sexually transmitted infectious diseases such as nongonococcal urethritis and cervicitis. DOSING: Azithromycin (except Zmax) can be taken with or without food, but food reduces stomach upset. Zmax should be taken on an empty stomach 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal since food reduces its absorption. The adult azithromycin dose is 500-2000 mg in multiple or single doses. For most infections, azithromycin is taken once daily for a relatively short course of treatment (usually five days). The first dose is often a "double dose," twice as much as the remainder of the doses given. For acute bacterial sinusitis, azithromycin way be taken once daily for three days. Zmax usually is given as a single 2 gm dose. DRUG INTERACTIONS: Azithromycin (except Zmax) should not be taken at the same time as aluminum- or magnesium- based antacids, such as Mylanta or Maalox because antacids will bind the azithromycin and prevent it from being absorbed from the intestine. PREGNANCY: There are no adequate studies of azithromycin in pregnant women. Azithromycin should only be used during pregnancy if it is clearly necessary. NURSING MOTHERS: It is not known if azithromycin is secreted in breast milk. SIDE EFFECTS: Azithromycin is generally well tolerated. The most common side effects are diarrhea or loose stools, nausea, abdominal pain, and vomiting which may occur in fewer than one in twenty persons who receive azithromycin. Rare side effects include abnormal liver tests, allergic reactions, and nervousness. Answered by Kareem Strejcek 6 months ago.
I don't know if your male or female, but I (female) tested positive for it after I had been with the same man for a yr, then married him, we had been married almost 2 yrs. when I tested positive for it, I was stunned, I was sure he had been fooling around on me. The dr. set me up to have the treatments for the next week, because it can turn into cancer if not detecited and treated, but what I did'nt know was that it can lay dormat for up to ten yrs. before showing up. So my hubby was tested and he was negitive. So it had to be someone before I meet him. It does not lay dormat in men tho,only women, the next week I went back for my treatments, it had already spread to a level 4 pre-cancerous, the highest level is 5 before it turns to cancer. Then treatmeants where not to bad. I was just glad I go to my OBGYN each yr. for a check up, or I would have had cancer. And that's been over 20 yrs. ago, and neither hubby nor I have had any problems with it scince.So I'm sure they have developed treatments and better medications for this scince then, by the way it takes about 3 weeks for a women to heal after treatments, so having sex for awhile is impossible for a women during that time. Hope this helps.

Is Azithromycin Safe During......?
Is this medication safe during a pregnancy ??
Asked by Jon Solies 6 months ago.
Abstract Background Azithromycin is an azalide antibiotic with an extensive range of indications and has become a common treatment option due to its convenient dosing regimen and therapeutic advantages. Human studies addressing gestational use of azithromycin have primarily focused on antibiotic efficacy rather than fetal safety. Our primary objective was to evaluate the possibility of teratogenic risk following gestational exposure to azithromycin. Methods There were 3 groups of pregnant women enrolled in our study: 1) women who took azithromycin. 2) women exposed to non-teratogenic antibiotics for similar indications, and 3) women exposed to non-teratogenic agents. They were matched for gestational age at time of call, maternal age, cigarette and alcohol consumption. Rates of major malformations and other endpoints of interest were compared among the three groups. Results Pregnancy outcome of 123 women in each group was ascertained. There were no statistically significant differences among the three groups in the rates of major malformations; 3.4% (exposed) versus 2.3% (disease matched) and 3.4% (non teratogen) or any other endpoints that were examined. In the azithromycin group, 88 (71.6%) women took the drug during the first trimester Conclusion Results suggest that gestational exposure to azithromycin is not associated with an increase in the rate of major malformations above the baseline of 1–3%. Our data adds to previous research showing that macrolide antibiotics, as a group, are generally safe in pregnancy and provides an evidence-based option for health professionals caring for populations with chlamydia.

How long does it take azithromycin to clear an infection? A 4 tablet to take at once dose.
Asked by Jeniffer Lysne 6 months ago.
Azithromycin has a long half-life and that's why you can receive a single dose. My guess is that you were prescribed one gram (250mg caplets x4). This drug is taken up by tissue and then released back into circulating blood. Zithromax (azithromycin) can stay in tissue for weeks or even months.

shygirl18, Azithromycin (Brand names - Zithromax, Azithrocin ) is an azalide, a subclass of macrolide antibiotics. Azithromycin is used to treat certain infections caused by bacteria, such as bronchitis; pneumonia; sexually transmitted diseases (STD); and infections of the ears, lungs, skin, and throat. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Antibiotics will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections.

Rocephin and Azithromycin?
I was treated with a shot of Rocephin and a prescription for Azithomycin today. there was only two 500mg pills equaling 1g. the bottle said to take both for ONE dose. was I supposed to wait until tomorrow to take the Azithromycin or take it tonight (I already took them, by the way.)
Asked by Caitlyn Goldblatt 6 months ago.
You did fine. Zithromax (azithromycin) has an extremely long half-life, 68 hours. The half-life of any drug is how long it takes for half the drug to be eliminated from the body. So, after 68 hours 50% of a dose has been excreted. That leaves the other 50%. Then in another 68 hours, 50% of that 50% is eliminated and that leaves 25%. In another 68 hours, half of the 25% is gone, that leaves 12.5%, and so on until you have 3.125% left and this isn't very effective. By the time you reach 1.6%, the azithromycin (not capitalized, it's a generic name) is virtually all gone. Consider how long 68 hours is -- nearly 3 days. Now consider how many 68-hour increments there are for azithromycin. It made no difference that you took the antibiotics today and not tomorrow. Today was fine. The Rocephin injection was so that you got an antibiotic on board right away, and because it wasn't taken by mouth, it wasn't metabolized by the liver and you didn't lose any of it to the "first-pass effect." You got 100% of the Rocephin and that was the point. You got about 38-40% of the azithromycin and the rest was lost. But what you got, will stay with you for 17 days.

I went to the doctors yesterday and he said I had some fluid in one of my lungs and he gave me azithromycin tablets to help cure it. I took them about 1-2 hours after eating then about 2 minutes later i ate some thai food. after taking a few bites i had extremely painful chest pain, like it was burning and i honestly wanted to die, followed by a stomach ache. My neck started feeling weird and i had the urge to throw up so i went to the kitchen and sat on the floor then i threw up two times. That was the first time i ever took those tablets, and now im supossed to take them today, but i'm afraid that same pain will happen again. Any suggestions why this happened or how to take these tablets without symptoms like this? I'm thirteen by the way. Sorry if this is in the wrong category, i didn't know where to put it. Answered by Barbara Shifferd 6 months ago.
Azithromycin is an antibiotic. Nausea and vomiting is a common side effect with this medication. If you are taking the tablets, take them with a full glass of water. You can take them either on an empty or full stomach. If you take them after eating, wait about 2 hours after eating before taking the tablets. If you had eaten then ate again shortly after taking the pills, your stomach got very upset, especially with Thai food which can be spicy. Everybody reacts differently with medications. You can try taking the tablets on an empty stomach, just drink a full glass of water when you take the tablets. Or you can try taking the medication after eating, just remember to take it 2 hours after eating and do not eat right after taking it. Wait 2-3 hours at least and do not eat real spicy foods. If you try both of these ways with taking the Azithromycin and you are still getting very nauseous and vomiting, then contact your doctor. He can prescribe a different medication. Also, it's very important that you do not take any antacids or medications for upset stomach while on this medication because it won't work as well and can cause increased nausea, vomiting and heart palpitations. Most likely you got sick because you ate right after taking the tablets. Also, it was Thai food which is usually spicy. Next time try taking it about 2 hours after eating. If you get sick again, try it on about 2 hours before eating on an empty stomach. If you still get sick, talk to your doctor. Answered by Antwan Faries 6 months ago.

"IS Zithromax Azithromycin THE ONLY THING THAT CAN TREAT CHLAMYDIA?
Asked by Karan Greening 6 months ago.
No. Azithromycin isn't the only drug that can treat chlamydia. Studies have evaluated a single dose of azithromycin and a 7 day course of doxycycline and found that they have similarly high cure rates (azithromycin is more expensive, but easier to take, and people are more likely to be compliant with taking one pill then taking 1 pill twice a day for 7) - Ofloxacin has an efficacy similar to doxy and azithro but it is more expensive and must be taken as a multiple dose course -Erythromycin is associated with a significantly higher gastrointestinal side effects than other regimes. Doxy or Azithro are the preferred regimens with the others (mentioned above) as the alternative courses. The above info is for adults (non-pregnant/non-lactating). If a women is pregnant/nursing there are other options, but they are not as effective and most require a 'test of cure' --- which means repeating the STI screen in a few weeks to make sure it worked. Amoxicillin is one of the alternate drugs for this category Answered by Marlo Wigboldy 6 months ago.
Chlamydia is caused by a bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis. It is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the US, but, depending on which type it is, it can also infect the eyes causing blindness, and the lungs causing a form of pneumonia. The type of infection you have dictates the antibiotic used. Zithromax is the front line medication, but just about any antibiotic used against gram negative bacteria will work. Other durgs used are doxicycline, erythromycin, and ampicillin. Take what your doctor gives you. Answered by Jerald Haske 6 months ago.
