How does Azithromycin work?

Azithromycin is an antibiotic that is used to treat a number of different bacterial infections. When these bacterial infections spread, the bacteria produce proteins that allow them to reproduce. The rate of reproduction is so fast that the body’s immune system is unable to keep up. Azithromycin prevents the bacteria from producing the protein they need to reproduce, which effectively stops the infection in its track. This gives the immune system time to kill the remaining bacterial cells.

What are the benefits of Azithromycin?

Azithromycin offers a fast and effective way to treat a wide range of bacterial infections. Unlike some other antibiotics that require lengthy treatment courses, this medication can clear STI’s like chlamydia in a single dose. Treating these infections in this way also significantly reduces the risk of side effects occurring.

Who can buy Azithromycin online?

Azithromycin is an antibiotic that can be used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections. It is generally well tolerated and so it can be used by most adults who are over the age of 18. You may not be suitable for this treatment if you suffer from kidney, liver or heart problems. It is not recommended that you use this medication if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You will need to complete an online medical consultation as part of the ordering process.Our doctors will use the information that you provide to determine whether Azithromycin is a suitable treatment option for you. Please ensure that you include all the necessary information about your medical history and any medications that you are currently taking.

How do you use Azithromycin?

For most genital infections, the treatment course of Azithromycin is 2 x 500mg tablets that are taken together in a single 1000mg dosage. This single dose treatment is sufficient to clear chlamydia, ureaplasma urealyticum, mycoplasma genitalium and non-specific urethritis.

The treatment for gonorrhoea is a little different as the 2 x 500mg Azithromycin tablets are taken in conjunction with 2 X 200mg Cefixime tablets. Again, these tablets are all taken together (or one after another if this is difficult). This single dose treatment option is sufficient to clear a gonorrhoea infection.

You will be provided with a detailed patient leaflet that will provide you with full instructions on how to use this medication to treat certain genital infections. You should read this leaflet in full before you start your treatment. Please feel free to contact our dedicated customer service team if you require any further advice or assistance.

Are there any side effects?

Azithromycin is typically used as a single dose treatment for bacterial infections, which significantly reduces the possibility of any side effects occurring. If these do occur, they can include digestion problems, vomiting, diarrhoea, nausea and dizziness. The patient leaflet that you are provided with when you buy Azithromycin online at 121doc will have a full list of the possible side effects from this medication. Most side effects are temporary and should pass within a few days. Please consult with your doctor if you experience anything persistent that causes you serious discomfort.

How to buy Azithromycin online?

You can buy Azithromycin online at 121doc without a doctor's appointment or previous prescription. As part of the ordering process, you will be required to complete an online medical questionnaire, which our doctors will use to determine whether Azithromycin is the correct treatment for you. If your order is approved, a prescription will be created and the medication dispatched from our UK registered pharmacy. We offer next day delivery on all of our STI treatments to ensure that you receive your medication as quickly possible. If you require any more information about this medication or the ordering process, please don't hesitate to contact our dedicated customer service team who will be more than happy to assist you. You are also able to place your order over the phone if you wish. We have ensured that our opening times include evenings and weekends to allow you to do this.

What is included in the online consultation?

Our consultations include general questions about your health (e.g. blood pressure levels, current and past conditions), as well as specific questions related to your selected treatment. We will also request relevant personal information to complete payment and delivery.

All questions are necessary, and your answers and details will not be shared with any third-parties. Only our doctors have access to your medical information.

Will a doctor review my consultation?

It is a legal and medical requirement that a doctor first reviews all completed consultations. We have a team of in-house doctors and specialists who will ensure your selected treatment is safe for your use. All information is stored securely and confidentially.

Please note, we do not guarantee that our doctors will approve treatment.

What happens after I submit my order?

Your consultation will be sent directly to our medical team, where it will be reviewed by one of our doctors.

If your chosen treatment is deemed suitable for your use, they will issue a prescription. Your prescription is then forwarded to our pharmacy, where your medication will be dispensed and dispatched for courier delivery.

Is the price all-inclusive?

Yes. All 121doc orders include a medical consultation, a prescription and next-day delivery. There are no additional costs. We believe in providing a safe and easy-to-use service.

Can I place more than one order at a time?

Yes. However, certain medications may negatively interact with each other. Our doctors may not approve your order on this basis.

You can place multiple items in one basket, and complete a consultation for all.

If you wish to place a second order for a different medication, you will have to complete a separate consultation.

What are my delivery options?

We offer several delivery options:

  • Next-day delivery
  • UPS Access Point - convenient parcel drop-off and collection near your home or work address
  • Nominated-day delivery - choose the most convenient day for delivery

All these options can be tracked and require a signature on delivery. If you are not available, a friend or relative can sign in your place.

None of these options will incur an additional charge.

Is it safe to buy prescription medication online?

To ensure you are purchasing from a reputable company, you should look to see their country’s regulatory bodies verify them.

In the UK, this is the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). Certificates can be viewed here.

How do I know which treatment is best for me?

Some treatments also offer the 'Advise Me' function. You will be asked questions about your lifestyle and needs, plus medical questions. You will then be presented with the advice of our doctors.

Is this service discreet?

Our patients’ privacy is of utmost importance. All your medical information is securely stored and only viewed by our doctors. We do not share your details with third-parties. We are also regularly inspected by various UK regulatory agencies, such as the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).

All orders will only show on invoices, bank statements, etc. as ‘HHC Ltd’.
