How to treat chlamydia with Azithromycin

For effective treatment of chlamydia, dozens of drugs are used, and everyone can show positive results.

As for the drug itself, which can be considered a leader in the treatment of chlamydia, doctors recommend Azithromycin.

Let’s talk today about how it is possible to treat, and on what scheme to use Azithromycin.

Features of Chlamydia

Therapy of this disease should take into account not only the need to exclude the spread of chlamydia, that is, the fastest possible treatment, but also the elimination of complications.

Thus, the choice of Azithromycin can be explained by the following factors:

  • The medicine must penetrate into the affected cell, only in this way it is possible to fight chlamydia as effectively as possible.
  • Chlamydia can often develop a permanent immunity to the main antibiotics from chlamydia, in view of which the treatment will be ineffective.
  • When the disease can develop an autoimmune process.
  • The almost complete absence of symptoms of chlamydia complicates the process of monitoring the treatment.

Considering all these factors, the drug is chosen, and, judging by the numerous reviews, the macrolide group, namely azithromycin, is ideally suited for therapy.

Feature of Azithromycin

Azithromycin does not just penetrate into the cell infected with chlamydia, but also accumulates there, providing high efficiency of annihilation of the pathogenic agent.

It can also be separately noted that using this drug, the risk of side effects and complications, which exists when treated with several medications at once, is excluded.

Treatment Scheme

Azithromycin has the ability to accumulate in the affected cells, we have already mentioned this, and it is this feature that leads to the fact that it simply does not always interact with other drugs.

The instruction for the use of the drug presupposes even the most classical monotherapy, when only Azithromycin is used.

However, one must understand that such a scheme and this approach can be used only at the initial stages of the development of the disease.

It is extremely important to know that taking the drug without a doctor’s recommendation is prohibited. We are talking about antibiotics, and accordingly there are always a number of contraindications.

It can be said that the instructions for using the drug without the exact dosage prescribed by the doctor are a dangerous way.

Such self-treatment will not only not eliminate the problem, but can provoke various complications, and the chlamydia can become chronic.

The standard scheme for the use of Azithromycin may be as follows:

  • With chlamydia at the initial stage – 1 time per day in a dose of 1g, two hours before meals.
  • At a sluggish course – on the first day 1 gram, for 2-3 days for 0.5 g, and for 4-7 days for 0.25 g. All once.

Thus, within a week the patient receives 3 grams of the drug. in a sense, we can say that the scheme is suitable for treating chlamydia in men at home.

Nevertheless, it is impossible to follow this scheme simply because often the drug is administered individually. For example, even with the treatment of both sex partners, they may have different dosages.
