Azithromycin 500 mg is an antibiotic that is used to treat infections caused by bacteria, such as the sexually transmitted infection chlamydia. Azithromycin stops bacteria growing and spreading.

Azithromycin is taken in a single dose, but you’ll still be contagious for one week afterwards. For this reason, it is important not to have sex for seven days after taking the medication, so that you don’t pass on chlamydia or get re-infected (for example, if your partner has chlamydia too).
