I was diagnosed with chlamydia. Was given azithromicin, single dose..however about 30mins later I vomited. Should I get more meds and how long before symptoms disappear

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Usually, pills make it out of the stomach and into the intestines within 10-15 minutes. If it was 30 minutes after taking the pill and you didn't see pill fragment(s) in the vomit (icky, I know), then there's no concerns about absorption.

Chlamydia usually doesn't cause many symptoms; but I'd expect any symptoms to improve within a week of treatment.

Hope that's helpful, BY
