Friend, one single dose of Azithromycin 250mg not likely to be toxic. He may develop mild gastrointestinal symptoms like vomiting and diarrhea otherwise he will be fine; no need to worry.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
