Prescribed medicine for chlamydia. Is it the same as Azithromycin?

Hi, I m an American now living in Ukraine. My wife has been diagnosed with Chlamydia and was givin a drug in Russian called Аэиерокс 500 to take 2 today and one 7 days from now orally for the both of us. I can t seem to find a English translation to find-out if it s the same as Azithromycin . They also suggested about 5 other drugs to take with it which doesn t seem necessary to me. What should we do?
