My doctor prescribed me 1000mg azithromax for 3 days to

Patient: My doctor prescribed me 1000mg azithromax for 3 days to clear up chlamydia. My girlfriend only had to take 1g once. IDid my doc accidentally give me too much? I am 6’2 and 215lbs if that is a factor.

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.The dose of any medication depends on what it is used for. I think that you are being gi ven a higher dose because you have a different condition. Both doses are correct to some extent.Usually, Azithromycin is given at a dose of 500 mg daily for 3 days.If you develop any rash, please see a Doctor. All the best!
