  • Take TWO Azithromycin 500mg tablets as a single dose.
  • You should take Azithromycin as soon as possible after a positive chlamydia test by you or one of your sexual partners.
  • Azithromycin tablets should be swallowed whole with plenty of water.
  • Do not have sex for SEVEN days after treatment.
  • Take a chlamydia test again after 14 days to ensure successful treatment.

Azithromycin 500mg tablets (chlamydia antibiotics) are available to buy from The Independent Pharmacy Online Doctor service, following a free consultation, to treat chlamydia in those who have had a positive chlamydia test or have had unprotected sex with someone who has. To find out more about chlamydia and see all the available treatments, see our Online Doctor Chlamydia page.

Azithromycin 500mg Tablets contain the active ingredient Azithromycin. This drug belongs to a category of medicines known as macrolide antibiotics. These antibiotics are used to treat chlamydia and other infections that are caused by bacteria.

Azithromycin 500mg Tablets work to inhibit a bacteria’s ability to produce proteins that are essential to their growth. Without these proteins they will be unable to increase in size or numbers. This mechanism of action will therefore halt the spread of the infection, allowing the body’s natural immune system to kill off any remaining bacteria.

Azithromycin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic. It is effective against a wide array of bacteria that are responsible for causing various types of infection. When being taken to treat the sexually-transmitted disease chlamydia; two tablets (2x500mg) are taken together as a single dose. A follow up dose is not usually necessary. A single dose Azithromycin will normally clear up most cases of chlamydia within 7 days. You can take another chlamydia test 14 days after your treatment to ensure the infection has cleared up.

Azithromycin is categorised as a prescription only medicine (POM). It is available as a generic tablet as well as the branded version Zithromax. Azithromycin preparations can also be used to treat many different types of bacterial infections, such as respiratory infections, skin infections, ear infections and sexually-transmitted infections (STI’s), such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea.

Like all medicines, Azithromycin can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

Side effects can include:

  • nausea & diarrhoea
  • abdominal pain
  • flatulence

If you have any of the following symptoms, you may have a severe allergic reaction to Azithromycin, stop taking it and tell your doctor immediately or go to the casualty department at your nearest hospital. 

  • Sudden difficulty in breathing, speaking and swallowing.
  • Swelling of the lips, tongue, face and neck.
  • Extreme dizziness or collapse.
  • Severe or itchy skin rash, especially if this shows blistering and there is soreness of the eyes, mouth or genital organs.

The following are serious side effects that occur in a very small minority of patients. If you experience any of the following side effects you should see your GP as soon as possible.

  • Diarrhoea that is serious, lasts a long time or has blood in it, with stomach pain or fever. This can be a sign of a serious bowel inflammation. This is something that can rarely happen after taking antibiotics
  • Yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes caused by liver problems
  • Inflammation of the pancreas, which causes severe pain in the abdomen and back
  • Increased or reduced urine output, or traces of blood in your urine
  • Skin rash caused by sensitivity to sunlight
  • Unusual bruising or bleeding
  • Irregular heart beat.
Please read the patient information leaflet that comes with your Azithromycin tablets before you take them for full information on side effects.

It is not suitable for our Online Doctor to prescribe Azithromycin to treat chlamydia for you if:

  • you have severe liver or kidney problems.
  • you have severe heart problems or problems with your heart beat such as long QT syndrome (shown on an electro-cardiogram or ECG machine).
  • your blood levels of potassium or magnesium are too low.
  • you develop signs of another infection.
  • you are taking any ergot derivatives such as ergotamine (to treat migraine).
  • you have a certain type of muscle weakness called myasthenia gravis.
  • you have nervous (neurological) or mental (psychiatric) problems.
If any of the above conditions apply you should see your GP for advice and treatment of chlamydia.

If you notice blood in your stool, or suffer with fever, chills, or severe headache your infection may be more serious and you should see a doctor as soon as possible. If symptoms include a thick or bloody discharge from the penis with soreness or inflammation in men or women with heavy offensive vaginal discharge or irregular bleeding and low abdominal pain, you should see your GP as this could indicate a more serious infection.

  • Take ONE capsule TWICE daily for SEVEN days.
  • Always ensure you complete the prescribed course.
  • You should take Doxycycline with or after food and with a full glass of water.
  • Do not have sex for SEVEN days after treatment is complete.
  • Take another chlamydia test after 14 days to ensure successful treatment.

Doxycycline 100mg capsules (chlamydia antibiotics) are available to buy from The Independent Pharmacy Online Doctor service, following a free consultation, to treat chlamydia in those who have had a positive chlamydia test or have had unprotected sex with someone who has. To find out more about chlamydia and see all the available treatments, see our Online Doctor Chlamydia page.

Doxycycline is an antibiotic used to treat chlamydia infections. Doxycycline is normally the second choice treatment for chlamydia, behind another antibiotic, Azithromycin. Doxycycline is equally as effective as azithromycin, but whereas azithromycin is a single dose treatment, doxycycline treatment needs to be taken twice daily for 7 days, meaning it can be inconvenient for patients.

Doxycycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic. It is effective against a wide array of bacteria that are responsible for causing various types of infection. When being taken to treat the sexually-transmitted disease chlamydia; two tablets (2x500mg) are taken together as a single dose. A follow up course is not usually necessary. A 7-day course of Doxycycline will normally clear up most cases of chlamydia within 7 days. You can take another chlamydia test 14 days after your treatment to ensure the infection has cleared up.

Doxycycline is categorised as a prescription only medicine (POM). It is available as a generic tablet as well as the branded version Vibramycin-D. Doxycycline preparations can also be used to treat many different types of bacterial infections, such as respiratory infections, skin infections, ear infections and sexually-transmitted infections (STI’s), such as Chlamydia.

More information about chlamydia treatment:

  • Avoid sexual contact whilst taking doxycycline and for 7 days afterwards, until no longer infectious.
  • People with a positive chlamydia test and their sexual partners should be treated, at the same time if possible.
  • Tests take 6 weeks to go negative after chlamydia has been successfully treated.

Doxycycline 100mg capsules, like all medicines, can cause some side effects. These are usually mild and do not occur in everyone. They can include:

  • nausea.
  • vomiting.
  • diarrhoea.
  • acid type indigestion (heartburn).

Other side effects from doxycycline are rare.

Doxycycline can cause skin sensitivity to light. This means your skin will burn much more quickly under UV light than normal. Strong sun and sun beds should be avoided whilst doxycycline is being taken. If you do go out in strong sunlight, ensure you cover your skin or wear strong sunblock.

For a full list of side effects and information about taking doxycycline, including interactions with other medication, see the patient information leaflet supplied with your treatment.

You should stop taking your treatment and see your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms that may indicate an allergic reaction:

  • wheeziness or difficulty breathing.
  • fever.
  • sudden swellings of the face, lips, throat, tongue, hands or feet.
  • fast heart rate.
  • low blood pressure.
  • rash or itching (especially over the whole body).
  • watery diarrhoea.
  • cramps.

Do not take Doxycycline and tell your doctor, if you:

  • have taken Doxycycline or any other antibiotic before and suffered an allergic reaction (e.g. rash, itching, swelling of the face, fainting and breathing problems)
  • are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Doxycycline Capsules
  • are pregnant or trying to become pregnant are breast-feeding

You should let your doctor know and ask their advice, if you:

  • are likely to be exposed to strong sunlight or ultraviolet light (e.g. on a sunbed).
  • have liver problems or are taking medicines which affect your liver.
  • have severe kidney problems.
  • have myasthenia gravis (a disease which causes unusual tiredness and weakness of certain muscles, particularly in the eyelid, difficulty chewing and swallowing and slurred speech).
  • have porphyria (a rare genetic disease of blood pigments).
  • have systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) a condition characterised by a rash (especially on the face), hair loss, fever, malaise and joint pain. This condition may be worsened by taking Doxycycline.


Doxycycline should not be taken at the same time as antacids or milk as these can reduce absorption and make your medicine less effective.

About Chlamydia

Chlamydia Background

The Independent Pharmacy Online Doctor service allows patients who have tested positive for chlamydia, or have a partner who has tested positive for chlamydia, to have a private consultation with a doctor and receive the treatment they require in a safe and discreet manner.

Chlamydia is a very common sexually transmitted Infection (STI). The infection is most common amongst those under the age of 25, although it can be contracted at any age. Chlamydia is caused by bacteria called Chlamydia Trachomatis and can be passed from one person to another through the sexual fluid produced by the penis and vagina. This means it’s possible for the infection to be transmitted without penetration or ejaculation. Chlamydia can be contracted in a variety of ways, including:

  • Unprotected sex (this can be vaginal, anal or oral)
  • Sharing sex toys that haven’t been washed between users
  • Your genitals coming into contact with another person’s genitals

Chlamydia isn’t something that can be caught through casual contact, such as holding hands or kissing, nor can it be transmitted by sharing household items like, towels, baths or cutlery.

Chlamydia Symptoms

A Brief Look At The Symptoms Of Chlamydia In Men & Women

The majority of people with chlamydia don’t experience any symptoms at all. It is estimated that around 70% of women and around 50% of men don’t notice any symptoms. When noticeable symptoms do develop, they will usually occur between one and three weeks after having unprotected sex with an infected person. The symptoms differ for women and men, the most common being listed below:


Chlamydia Symptoms In Women:

  • Pain during sex
  • Bleeding during and/or after sex
  • Pain when urinating
  • Bleeding between periods and heavier periods than normal
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • A noticeable change in any vaginal discharge


Chlamydia Symptoms In Men:

  • An abnormal discharge from the tip of the penis.
  • Pain when urinating
  • Pain in the testicles

 

If chlamydia has infected the rectum (through unprotected anal sex) then the sufferer may experience pain, bleeding or a discharge from the anal canal. If any infected sexual fluid comes into contact with the eyes, (usually through oral sex) then conjunctivitis may develop.

 

If symptoms include a thick or bloody discharge from the penis with soreness or inflammation in men or women with heavy offensive vaginal discharge or irregular bleeding and low abdominal pain, you should see your GP as this could indicate a more serious infection.


A Detailed Look At The Symptoms of Chlamydia in Men & Women

Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections worldwide and can be transmitted in men and women through vaginal, anal and/or oral sex. Since this is a bacterial infection, it can be treated through antibiotics, but if left untreated can cause serious short-term as well as long-term complications in both sexes. Chlamydia usually shows no symptoms in women, but does manifest some signs of infection if tested for.


Chlamydia Symptoms in Women

In an overwhelming population of women (up to 70%) chlamydia is asymptomatic, that is, it does not manifest any symptoms and can go undetected for months or even years. If left undetected, chlamydia can cause pelvic inflammatory disease. Pelvic inflammatory disease may result in scarring inside the reproductive organs, ectopic pregnancy (a case where a fertilized egg develops elsewhere than in the womb), chronic pelvic pain and difficulty getting pregnant among other complications.

 

When symptoms are apparent, they usually manifest within one to three weeks of getting infected. Some symptoms to watch out for include:

 

  • Abnormal or irregular vaginal discharge that smells foul
  • Vaginal bleeding in between periods
  • Painful urination and the urge to urinate more frequently than usual
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Itching or burning around the vaginal area
  • Fever and abdominal pain, lower back pain
  • Unusually painful menstruation
  • In some cases there may be rectal pain or discharge

 

Chlamydia can be tested in women through a cervical swab and urine test to check for the presence of the bacteria.


Chlamydia Symptoms in Men

Chlamydia is more apparent in men than women. In men chlamydia affects the urethra (the canal that carries off urine from the bladder) first and therefore some symptoms become easy to perceive. These may include:

 

  • A clear or cloudy discharge from the penis
  • Pain during urination
  • Itchiness, redness or swelling of the head of the penis
  • Painful swollen testicles
  • Pain in the lower abdomen and fever

 

Penile discharges also happen in gonorrhoea (inflammation of the genital mucous membrane that is contagious) but in case of Chlamydia, it is less viscous and lighter in colour than in gonorrhoea. If left untreated for more than 6 to 8 weeks, the infection can spread to the testicles causing epididymitis, which in some cases, can cause sterility. Chlamydia can also cause prostatitis (inflammation of the prostrate) in men. In some cases, the urethra may become inflamed.

 

The presence of Chlamydia can be tested in men with a swab of the urethra and urine test.

 

In spite of serious symptoms in men and women, Chlamydia can be treated successfully with antibiotics and prevention of further infection. It is advised to get yourself tested regularly if you have an active sexual life, or multiple partners and if you notice any of the above symptoms.

Chlamydia Diagnosis

If you suspect or are experiencing any symptoms of chlamydia, it’s very important to get tested. If left untreated it could potentially spread and create further complications. In women it can spread into the womb and cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID is a major cause of miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy and infertility.

 

Men who don’t get treated are risking several complications too, including; swollen testicles (orchitis), reactive arthritis and potentially, infertility. The recommended criteria for getting tested for chlamydia include the following:

 

  • You or your partner are suffering from any of the symptoms of chlamydia
  • You’ve had unprotected sex with a new partner or a condom has split during protected sex
  • You or your partner have had unprotected sex with others
  • You or your partner suspect having a sexual transmitted disease (STI)
  • (For women) during a vaginal examination, if your GP or nurse notices any inflammation or vaginal discharge
  • You’re either pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant

 

Whether you are experiencing the symptoms or not the only way to know for sure is to get tested. Fortunately, the available methods of testing are all quick and painless. Your GP or nurse will be able to advise you what test will be the most appropriate for you. For most people, a test is carried out using a simple urine sample. This sample is then sent away for analysis. Another test will use a swab to collect a sample of contaminated cells. This involves gently wiping the swab over the area suspected to be infected with chlamydia. The swab will then be sent away for analysis. Alternatively, home tests, such as the Clamelle Chlamydia testing kit, are available to buy from pharmacies without the need for any direct consultation. For many people this discreet, convenient and private test is the preferred option.


If you have tested positive for chlamydia it is important that your sexual partners are also treated at the same time to avoid re-infection. If you have had unprotected sex with someone who has tested positive for chlamydia it is not necessary to get a test if you do not wish to do so. Treatment can be purchased directly from the Online Doctor.

For sexually active adults under the age of 25, it is recommended to get tested every year or every time you have a new sexual partner. The National Chlamydia Screening Programme can offer testing in an array of places close and convenient to you.

 

If you test positive for chlamydia, it is advised that you contact any sexual partners you’ve had within the past six months. This will ensure they can be checked and receive treatment if necessary. Sexual health clinics are available and willing to contact these partners on your behalf if you wish. Everything is handled confidentially and your name will not appear on any of the correspondence.

Chlamydia Treatment

You can be treated for chlamydia by The Independent Pharmacy Online Doctor if you meet one of the following criteria:

  • You have already had a positive test result for chlamydia
  • There is a high chance you have chlamydia and you cannot wait for a test result
  • A sexual partner has tested positive for chlamydia

Treating chlamydia is quick and easy and will usually involve a short course of antibiotics. The two most commonly prescribed chlamydia treatments are Azithromycin and Doxycycline. If taken correctly they cure more than 95 out of every 100 cases of chlamydia. Azithromycin is the preferred antibiotic as it only requires a single dose of two tablets. Azithromycin is also safe to take if pregnant or breastfeeding. If Azithromycin isn’t appropriate, usually because of an allergy, then Doxycycline will become the preferred antibiotic. Doxycycline is a longer course and will involve taking two capsules every day for one week. If complications are suspected then a longer course of antibiotics may be necessary.

 

You should restrain from having sex for at least one week after completing your course of chlamydia treatment antibiotics. If your sexual partner hasn’t undergone any treatment, it would be advised not to have sex with them until they receive the appropriate antibiotics. It is advised to always avoid having sex until all the related symptoms have gone completely (for 7 days as a minimum).

 

If the course of chlamydia treatment is taken correctly then there will be no need for retesting to check the chlamydia has gone. A follow-up test is only advised if any of the following applies:

 

  • You didn’t take the medication as instructed
  • Your symptoms still remain
  • Your symptoms have come back
  • You had sex before you and your partner had completed treatment

Chlamydia Prevention

There are measures you can take which will help guard against chlamydia and other sexually transmitted diseases. These include:

  • Using a condom during penetrative sex. This applies to both vaginal and anal intercourse.
  • During oral sex use a condom to cover the penis.
  • If using sex toys, don’t share them with others without first washing the toy or covering it with a fresh condom.
  • If performing oral sex on the female genitals, or when rubbing female genitals together, make use of a device called a dental dam. A dental dam is a thin piece of latex or plastic used to cover the female genitals.

Chlamydia Treatment FAQ's

 

 

What is chlamydia?

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacteria Chlamydia Trachomatis.

It is transmitted through semen and vaginal fluid during genital, oral and anal sex. It can be passed from one partner to another even if the man has not ejaculated. It can also be passed through sex toys that have not been washed or cleaned after use or have not been replaced with a clean condom.


Is chlamydia the same as 'The Clap'?

No, although it is commonly thought that chlamydia is 'The Clap', it is actually gonorrhoea that 'The Clap' refers to. Gonorrhoea treatment is also available from our Online Doctor.


How do I know I have chlamydia & what symptoms am I likely to experience?

Around 70-80% of women and 50% of men with chlamydia don't notice any symptoms. If women do get symptoms, the most common include: 


  1. Pain when urinating (peeing)
  2. A change in vaginal discharge
  3. Pain in the lower abdomen
  4. Pain and/or bleeding during sex
  5. Bleeding after sex
  6. Bleeding between periods
  7. Heavier periods than usual

Around half of all men with chlamydia don't notice any symptoms. If men do get symptoms, the most common include:

  1. Pain when urinating (peeing)
  2. Discharge from the tip of the penis (this can be a white, cloudy or watery discharge)
  3. Pain in the testicles

Some men have mild symptoms that disappear after two or three days. Even if the symptoms disappear you will still have the infection and be able to pass it on.


If I don't get chlamydia treatment, will it go away by itself?

Untreated chlamydia won’t go away by itself and can do more harm to your body.If chlamydia is left untreated in women, it can spread to the womb and causing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID is a major cause of infertility, miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy.

If chlamydia is left untreated in men they are at risk of complications of chlamydia such as orchitis (swollen testicles), reactive arthritis, and infertility. Chlamydia treatment is easy and the infection is curable.

You can get a discreet home test that includes the lab costs, the urine container and the pre-paid envelope.


How long have I had the chlamydia infection?

Symptoms can appear one to three weeks after infection, many months later, or not until the infection has spread to other parts of your body. The test for chlamydia will tell you if you have the infection but it will not be able to determine how long you have had it.


How long will it take for the symptoms to appear after I have the infection?

Up to 50% of men and 70% of women do not show symptoms of the infection. It can take 1-3 weeks for the symptoms to develop, however it can occur months later. How long will it take for me to get a positive test if I have caught chlamydia? It can take up to 2 weeks for a positive chlamydia test to show therefore we recommend people wait at least 10 days from their unprotected sexual encounter before testing. This will help to prevent false readings in the test results.


After taking chlamydia treatment how long will it take for my symptoms to clear?

Chlamydia antibiotics, azithromycin or doxycycline, usually settle symptoms quickly. Pain on passing urine and discharge go within a week, pelvic or testicular pain can take two weeks and menstrual irregularities should improve by the next cycle.


I have taken chlamydia treatment but why have my symptoms have not cleared up yet?

There are many reasons why you maybe experiencing more symptoms. These could include:

  1. You have another underlying sexually transmitted infection (STI) at the same time. This will need further investigations or tests. Gonorrhoea commonly occurs in conjunction with chlamydia.
  2. You have an unrelated infection e.g. a lower urinary tract infection or endometriosis.
  3. On rare occasions the strain of bacteria can be resistant to the antibiotics and further treatment is required. Another chlamydia test may be required but this will have to be performed after 6 weeks. Any earlier and the test will present a positive result from the initial infection.

For more advice see you GP or visit your local GUM clinic.


Do I have to tell my partner or previous sexual partners?

Its important you tell your current partner and other sexual partners within the last 6 months because:

  1. They may not know they have an infection
  2. Left untreated it can lead to serious complications
  3. Chlamydia treatment is easy, simple and the infection is curable.

We understand that this may be difficult however it is very important you tell your previous sexual partners if you have been diagnosed with chlamydia to allow them to be tested and treated.


Will my partner think I have cheated on them?

There isn’t a way of knowing how long you have had the infection; you may not of caught it recently. The test only gives a positive result with no indication of how long you have had chlamydia. You may have had the infection for a long time and transmitted it to others without knowing. Partners can feel angry, scared, embarrassed or worried but appreciate you confiding in them.


Is it best for both partners to get chlamydia treatment at the same time?

Yes, it is important to treat both sexual partners for chlamydia because one partner untreated or partially treated can re-infect the other. After treatment you need to abstain from sexual activity for one week. This includes genital, oral and anal sex even with a condom.


There are two antibiotic chlamydia treatments available, how do I take azithromycin?

Azithromycin is taken a single dose treatment. Both the tablets are swallowed at once with a glass of water on an empty stomach. It needs to be taken either an hour before food or two hours after food for maximum effectiveness.


Doxycycline is the other antibiotic treatment for chlamydia, how do I take that?

Take 1 doxycycline capsule in the morning and 1 capsule in the evening, 12 hours apart. Take them on an empty stomach whilst sitting upright or standing. We do not recommend you take the medication directly before going to bed as it may cause irritation of the oesophagus. Ensure you drink plenty of water with each dose. Unlike other antibiotics in the tetracycline family, taking it with food does not significantly affect the absorption. If you feel nauseous or experience an upset tummy then swallow the capsules with food.



What do I do if I am sick after taking chlamydia treatment?

If you vomit within one hour of taking the azithromycin tablets then the medicine will not have been significantly absorbed and you will need a replacement. 
 If you are sick after taking a doxycycline capsule, continue taking the course as usual. Take the next capsule with food to decrease the chance of nausea and vomiting. It is unlikely that missing one dose will have an effect on the overall treatment. If you miss multiple doses then this can lead to treatment failure.


What do I do if I forget to take a dose of doxycycline?

Take another dose as soon as you remember. If 12 hours has elapsed then take the next dose as usual. Do not take 2 doses at once. Missing one dose will not effect the overall treatment but missing several doses can cause treatment failure.


If I am pregnant, will chlamydia harm my baby?

The infection can be passed from the mother to the child during delivery via the birth canal. It can cause pneumonia, eye infections, pre term labour and a low birth weight.

Chlamydia screening and treatment for chlamydia during pregnancy can prevent these complications. This is not part of the routine NHS antenatal screening but your midwife or GP can arrange a simple swab test. Doxycycline cannot be taken during pregnancy, but azithromycin is safe and effective.


How do I protect myself from getting chlamydia again in the future?

Use a barrier method, such as a condom, to protect yourself from sexually transmitted diseases. Clean sex toys before using them again or replace the condom and them for each new sexual activity. At the start of a new sexual relationship, both partners should be tested for STI’s and treated before sexual contact.


What do I do if a sexual partner tells me they have chlamydia?

You may wish to go ahead and get chlamydia treatment without being tested if you have had unprotected sex with someone who has chlamydia. You can also get a chlamydia test to see if you have a positive result. If you do get a positive result, you will need to take antibiotic treatment to cure your chlamydia infection, this is normally very straightforward.


What if I take a chlamydia test and it is negative, should I get treatment anyway?

If you take a chlamydia test and you get a negative result you should still take chlamydia treatment. If you have has sex with a partner who has chlamydia, although most people will go on to develop chlamydia not everyone that comes into contact will become infected. However, due to the chances of a false-negative test, it is advised to take chlamydia treatment anyway.

Is it safe to buy chlamydia treatment online?

Yes, as long as you are buying from a website that is a legally operating and regulated pharmacy it is perfectly safe to buy chlamydia antibiotic tablets online.
