Azithromycin: Just 6pills????

Recommended Posts

So I got my azithromycin the label Zithromax. The weird thing is that it only came with 6 pills. It says you take two he first day. And one each for the remaining for 4ays. I guess you just stop taking them after the 5th day and the effect is supposed to last. I heard this antibiotic is good for acne, but is it really wise to stp after 5days!!!???

I was presribed this as well and yes it's only meant to be taken for 5 days. You can't take it everyday or else your body will become immune to the medicine but it does help get rid of the acne, at least it did for me.

i took the pills with benzaclin and it helped a lot. when i went back to the doctors the 2nd time, i asked for it again, and he did give it to me with my benzaclin. i'm on benzaclin permanetly now but i don't think i'm gonna need the zithromax anymore. that crap is expensive too, i had to pay $10 for those 6 pills and that's with insurance, i think it's like $50 if you don't have insurance.

so this is my 3rd day n Zithromax and I only have 3pills left. And I don't feel any difference or improvement. Usually antibiotics are supposed to show results right away, or atleast small improvements. Im still getting breakouts so I dont know what the deal is.... any advice from past users?
