Azithromycin Dosage

Azithromycin is taken as a pill or liquid. It's also given as intravenous (IV) injection in hospitals. Packets of powder are mixed with water to create the liquid solution.

Azithromycin may be taken with or without food.

Doctors sometimes prescribe azithromycin for shorter periods than they do for other antibiotics, such as in a one-day "mega-dose," or for three or five days, using the Z-Pak, which starts at a higher dose than longer regimens.

The dosage and length of time for azithromycin treatment vary according to the type of infection:

  • Infections of the skin and skin tissues: One dose of 500 milligrams (mg), then 250 mg per day for four days
  • Infection of the throat and tonsils: One dose of 500 mg; then 250 mg per day for four days
  • Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP): One dose of 500 mg, then 250 mg per day for four days
  • Genital Ulcer Disease: 1 gram (g), one time
  • Sinus infections caused by bacteria: 500 mg a day for three days or 2 g as a one-time dose
