Is that possible?



I know it sounds silly lol. But after reading my paperwork(like a dummy i read it late) I was supposed to take 1g at once and I took 1.5grams at once. My doctor confused me on the phone.. I swore she said all 6 pills but paperwork says 4...

You can. But, I don't think you did. I'd just give them a call.

I'm sure it would take a lot more than that. Maybe just take a half dose the next time you are suppose to take it and then do it regular from then on.

NO!

OP... just take it normal like you should.. and let your doctor know in case they want to call in one more dose for you.

do NOT take half a dose next time. often times doctors will order a stronger dose for hte first one anyway... so likely not a problem. DO NOT take half a dose next time. All that does is give the bacteria a chance to build resistance and come back stronger

Welllll... There shouldnt be a problem with that. It was just a one time dose.
Its azithromycin. For f'n chlamydia. Smh. Yep Im embarrassed. SO tested positive. I tested negative but we had sex before results came back.
I was supposed to take 1000mg(1g) in one single dose for it. I had a zpack left over from when my dr accidently perscribed me 2 for my strep a few weeks back(right before getting the test done). Talked to my doctor and I swore she said take the whole pack. All 6 pills. Which is 1500mg(1.5grams)
Thats what I took. Then reading the paperwork I got from the clinic it says only take 4 pills in a single dose from the z pack.



I just wanna make sure I didnt f**k up my body some how. :(



ETA: I took them 4 hours ago and have felt nauseous ever since.. but havent thrown up.

Did your SO cheat????



Your tummy might get upset and you may have diarrhea or be constipated, just depends on your body. But you will be fine. Antibiotics mess around with the good bacteria in your tummy so like I said you may have the runs or may be constipated but that is normal even if you took the regular doses. Ive been on a lot of meds because of this stupid strep throat and my pee smells like antibiotics, but it's all good and isn't cause for alarm!

No he didnt cheat. He got a call 2 weeks ago from his ex. She just recently found out she had it. He was tested right before being with her but not between me and her(he even still had the paperwork). It was over a year ago that they were together. That was the last girl he was with before we met. She gave it to him. Doctor told me that the reason my test came up negative is probably because I was on the zpack the week before my test for strep and it probably treated it. Leaving me negative and him positive. But we had sex after getting the test done but before getting the results back like dummies lol. Which made it possible for me to reinfect myself. Hense why I had to take this big dose. And no sex for a week. Which is fine by me as long as this STD disappears for good!
Ive never had one in my life :(



And thank you. Thats reassuring! Upset stomach I can handle!
