Thanks for your query.
Your concerns are correct. Nitrofurantoin is not the medicine of choice in Chlamydia.
The drugs of choice are Azithromycin or Doxycyclin.
You will have to have a prescription from your Doctor as these are prescription medicines.
It is the most important thing that your partner too should be treated simultaneously as this is a sexually transmitted disease.
Refrain from sex for about 10 days at least.
Hope this helps.
