G for reassurance to know that as long as you follow the guidelines by your healthcare provider and change your ways everything will be okay. My partner and I were treated with 1g azithromycin and abstained for 10 days...I'm negative still 7 months later! I didn't deserve to get this and neither did my partner someone gave it to me before my current relationship....don't trust just anyone with your body! This study concluded that azithromycin 1g single dose was quite effective in curing gonorrhea. "This paper describes the efficacy of azithromycin 1g single dose in the management of uncomplicated gonorrhoea either with or without chlamydial co-infection. Three hundred and one patients were treated for gonorrhoea between January 2000 and June 2001; 226/301 (75.1%) were treated with azithromycin 1g stat dose while the rest were treated with different regimens. Since i've read that curing gonorrhea requires a 2g single dose of azithromycin, i probably should retreat for gonorrhea at some point in the future. Im handling the 1g dose ok..some painful tenderness in my lower stomach. Hi, My partner was given Chlamydia treatment last week and I was told I should take the same so I did (1g Azithromycin). The tests aren't actually back until the end of this week and I am concerned that it is actually Gonorrhea as I am sometimes itchy externally and was a little itchy internally but caneston relieved that for a while. [Posted 08/03/2018]AUDIENCE: Patient, Health Professional, Oncology ISSUE: The antibiotic azithromycin (Zithromax, Zmax) should not be given long-term to prevent a certain inflammatory lung condition in patients with cancers of the blood or lymph nodes who undergo a donor stem cell transplant. Results of a clinical trial found an increased rate of relapse in cancers affecting the blood and lymph nodes, including death, in these patients. We are reviewing additional data and will communicate our conclusions and recommendations when our review is complete. BACKGROUND: The serious lung condition for which long-term azithromycin was being studied called bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome is caused by inflammation and scarring in the airways of the lungs, resulting in severe shortness of breath and dry cough. Cancer patients who undergo stem cell transplants from donors are at risk for bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome. The manufacturer of brand name azithromycin is providing a Dear Healthcare Provider letter on this safety issue to health care professionals who care for patients undergoing donor stem cell transplants. Azithromycin is not approved for preventing bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome.
Generic Name: Azithromycin (multiple manufacturers) Common Brand Name: Zithromax (Pfizer — U. S.) Popularity: 11th most commonly prescribed drug between 2002 — 2007 (U. S.) Class: Macrolide antibiotic Treatment Uses — For treatment of bacterial infections. Azithromycin has distinct advantages over earlier macrolides such as erythromycin that include better tolerance, better tissue penetration and more favorable pharmacokinetics. Because azithromycin can be dosed once daily, it improves patient compliance — a leading cause of antibiotic failures. Macrolides act primarily against streptococci and staphylococci, and are often used to treat these bugs in patients intolerant of penicillins. The therapeutic uses for azithromycin are broad and continually changing. If these effects are mild, they may go away within a few days or a couple of weeks. If they’re more severe or don’t go away, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. Call your doctor right away if you have serious side effects. Call 911 if your symptoms feel life-threatening or if you think you’re having a medical emergency. Serious side effects can include: If you have an allergic reaction, call your doctor or local poison control center right away. If your symptoms are severe, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Don’t take this drug again if you’ve ever had an allergic reaction to it.
