User :   Hi there, I took 4 azithromycin to treat Non Specific Urethritis at circa 14:45 hours. At circa 17:50 hours, I experienced diarrhoea, and again with greater severity at circa 19:00 hours. Will the antibiotics still be effective to treat my condition? Or do I require a second treatment? Many thanks in advance...
