Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Actually using cefadroxil would not eliminate the bacteria from your body. The reason is that cefadroxil is an antibiotic which kills only a certain type of bacteria such as streptococcus and its various species. Now if you had intercourse with this person within the last 3-6 weeks then it would be wise to use 1 g of azithromycin to prevent the development of chlamydia related symptoms. In some patients you may NOT develop any symptoms at all and you would need to get tested to find out whether you are infected or not. My recommendation is that you first get tested and see if you are infected or not. If you are then the ideal antibiotic to use would be azithromycin 1 g as a single dose only once. Cefadroxil would not be effective here.

Can you write me a Rx for azithromycin?
Expert:  Dr. Muneeb Ali replied 3 months ago.

Unfortunately we cannot prescribe online as that would be illegal. A prescription can only be given if a doctor patient relationship is formed which can only be formed after an in person office visit which is not possible here. You can visit your nearest urgent care center or visit your doctor for a prescription.
