Azithromycin instead of doxy


#1

Has anyone used the one gram dose of azithromycin powder form instead of Doxy. The doxy is so hard on my stomach, I asked for an alternative… this is what they gave me. Never had one in powder form before.

Thanks

I was taking azithromycin powder last year and it was very effective (not for IVF but for other reasons). Taking azithromycin was not bad at all (as I thought it will be).

Few tips (given to me by my Dr., it worked in my case :cheer: ):

  • take azithromycin while standing (do not sit and do not be in bed while swallowing it)
  • after taking azithromycin take a slow walk min 20 min (again, forbidden is to sit and to go to bed during that time)
  • after that time, behave normaly.

This is the tip to prevent irritation of your upper digestive tract (esophagus), what azithromycin might cause.

Good luck!
