Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

For treatment of a chlamydia infection, you should take Zpack given as a single 1000 mg dose, that is you have to take four 250 mg pills together. This is very effective and will cure the chlamydial infection and avoid its complications.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
