Thanks for posting your query.

As you know azithromycin is an antibiotic and it is a prescription drug. No one should take this tablet without being advice by a doctor and examination by a doctor.

Taking any prescription drug without advice may put you in trouble some time.Ideally the chemist should not dispense this without prescription.

Normal adult dose is 1 tablet of 500mg for 3-5 days depending upon the severity of infection and your weight.

I hope this helps.

Please feel free to write again if you have some more queries, in case you do not have more queries please accept the answer.

Wishing you good health.
