With concerns growing about the current Global pandemic, other diseases have been pushed aside in the public light. However, sexually transmitted diseases have not disappeared and still remain a problem. Young people are just as much at risk as they have ever been for STDs such as gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia. Sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia are caused by bacteria called chlamydia trachomatis. This bacteria can infect man and woman alike with women vulnerable to getting chlamydia in the cervix, rectum, or throat. With Medical Systems being stressed to capacity around the world, it is more important than ever to safeguard yourself from illness. Sexually transmitted diseases are a particularly great worry for young people who have active sex lives.

Chlamydia is one of the more common sexually transmitted diseases and it is caused by chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia spreads during oral, vaginal, or anal sex with an infected person. It is also possible for a pregnant woman to pass chlamydia to her newborn baby at birth. Chlamydia is not like the chicken pox which can only begotten once. Chlamydia can be contracted more than once if you are exposed to another infected person. This particular sexually transmitted disease is most common among young people and young women are especially at risk. It is important to get tested if you think you may have a sexually transmitted disease. You should suspend all sexual activity to avoid spreading the disease until you have confirmed whether you are infected or not.

When it comes to treating chlamydia, there is one particular antibiotic that is especially effective. This antibiotic is called Zithromax (Azithromycin) and is used to treat several different kinds of  bacterial infections. Some of the other types of infections that Zithromax is used to treat can include respiratory infections, skin infections, and ear infections. Zithromax is commonly prescribed to those who have chlamydia but if you have ever had jaundice or liver problems you should avoid this particular medication. If you have ever had an allergic reaction to clarithromycin, erythromycin, or telithromycin, you should avoid taking Zithromax. Before taking Zithromax you should inform your doctor if you have ever had liver disease, kidney disease, or a heart rhythm disorder.

Zithromax can be purchased at virtually any pharmacy but it must be prescribed by your doctor. It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions and only take Zithromax as prescribed. Additional instructions will be on the label of the prescription bottle in case you forget. Zithromax is a medication that can be taken with food or without food and it typically comes in the form of an oral liquid. Doses must be measured out with a measuring spoon or medicine cup which can be provided by your pharmacist.

  3. Zithromax is some strong stuff, let me tell you. You have to make sure to eat before you take it! Other antibiotics pack a punch, but this one takes the cake. You best eat a good portion of cake too before you dose up on it to avoid all the stomach upset that’s possible. It works wonders, though.

  4. Zithromax will cure your infections, no doubt. It has a lot of punch! It also will give you some wicked diarrhea if you don’t eat a lot of food when you’re taking it! This is one of those pills that when it tells you “must be taken with food”, you better listen to the label unless you like spending most of your day sitting on the porcelain throne.

  5. I have used Zithromax for any bacterial infections or any sore throats that I have had in the past several years, for both myself and my family. Let me tell you, this stuff works like a charm. It heals any of my pain very quickly and it allows me to be able to go back to work in a flash.

  6. Azithromycin is a very cheap and effective antibiotic. However, it did cause severe nausea. I do recommend it as it cleared by infection. Please talk to your doctor before taking this medication.

  7. I suspected that I got an infection so I went to the doctor, and was prescribed a few 500 mg doses of Azithromycin. I made sure to drink plenty of water and eat before I took the medicine. I did experience some gastric side effects, such as vomiting, stomach pain, and vomiting.

  8. I have moderate to severe asthma linked to stress and allergies. During cold and flu season I will usually catch at least one bacterial infection. My doctor usually prescribes Zithromax or a “Z pack” for me usually 10 days. I usually do not have symptoms with a Z pack, other than mild anxiety when time to go to sleep, which makes it a little harder to sleep. This usually happens once I’ve been on the pill, for 2/3 days. It then subsides by day 6. I do not experience dry mouth, nausea or upset stomach with this pill. I like that the Z pack is usually clearly marked with times and dates that you should consume each pill. This makes it easier to judge whether you missed a pill or stops you from taking too many. I like that the pill pack also has suggested times of day along with typical schedules like ‘breakfast’ ‘lunch’ ‘bedtime.’ I am satisfied with the Z Pack and I have no problem with my doctor prescribing it.

  9. I was prescribed Azithromycin for a sinus infection I had and it worked better then I expected it to work no allergic reaction. It was awesome. I am allergic to erythromycin so it’s in the same drug family and it was a 50/50 shot that I would do ok with it. So peace of mind for those with allergies same as mine, you should be in the clear.
