Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.The most common side effects of taking Azithromycin are diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain and vomiting. These are mild side effects and the benefits far outweigh the risk in such a scenario.I recommend that you take the tablets to reduce the risk especially if you have had exposure to STDs. Hope this helps you.All the best.
