Chlamydia..500mg in the morning on an empty stomach and ate 1+ hours

Resolved Question:

I took a one time 1g dose of Zithromax for Chlamydia. I was on an empty stomach and then ate an hour later. I then took another 500mg in the morning on an empty stomach and ate 1+ hours later. I was having a morning discharge of a clear/cloudy mixture. I took this dose approximately 36hrs ago and I am still having morning discharge. How long will it be before I see my symtpoms go away? Did I take the dosage correctly?
