Azithromycin 1g by mouth in a single dose
Doxycycline 100 mg by mouth twice daily for 7 to 14 days
Your doctor will prescribe oral antibiotics if you are diagnosed with chlamydia. The most frequent treatments are a single dosage of azithromycin or taking doxycycline twice daily for 7 to 14 days.
The infection should clear up in approximately a week with treatment. Do not have sex for at least 7 days after you've finished all of your antibiotics, and don't stop taking them just because you're feeling better.
To prevent reinfection and the transmission of the disease, your doctor will also advise that you and your partner(s) be treated.
Serious infections, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, may necessitate a prolonged antibiotic treatment or hospitalization.
