    Hi i have chlamydia and ganaria. What the best medication to treat it and how many milligrams. Reply
    Replied by Pharmacist @ IDM
    Hi, For Chlamydia/ Gonorrhea disease usually a physician recommends to male or female to take Azithromycin or Doxycycline and it should be usually taken with or without food once a day for 1 to 5 days. To help you remember to take Azithromycin or Doxycycline, take it around the same time every day. Take Azithromycin or Doxycycline exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor and I also suggest you to please get confirmation from your physician before you start, since your physician would suggest you the exact drug with dosage based on the severity of the disease.
