I threw up an hour later after drinking the treatment for chlamydia is the treatment still in effect?


It’s hard to say for sure. Chlamydia is treated with antibiotics. Sometimes you need to take those antibiotics for several days, while other times a single dose is prescribed. Either way, it’s important to make sure that you take all the medication prescribed to you or else the chlamydia may not go away.

Throwing up after taking your medication may mean you haven’t gotten all the antibiotics you need to get better. Speak with the doctor or nurse who prescribed your treatment for chlamydia or the staff at your nearest Planned Parenthood health center to find out the best thing to do.
