I was diagnosed with chlamydia. My doctor gave me a prescription of one dose of Azithromycin (500mg). I took this around 5:00pm today. Around midnight, I had a little less than half a glass of wine before thinking and deciding that I shouldn't drink. My doc didn't tellgive me any instructions about whether I could drink or not.

I wanted to know would this amount of wine affect the treatment. Also, how low does this treatment usually take to clear the chlamydia?

Hi Itsme,

If you got the single dose of Azithromycin, it should take no more than a few days to clear the infection.

As for the wine, it's recommended that you refrain from drinking alcohol with the treatment because of a possible drug interaction. It doesn't sound like you drank enough for it to cause a problem.

Would it be safe to have sex after two weeks? Or would it still be possible to transmit the infection?

It should be fine but I would also recommend you speak with your doctor.
