Brief Answer: Hello, I would be happy to help... Detailed Answer: If a patient presented for treatment of Chlamydia: 1 gram as a single dose = 2 x 500g tablets. This is an acceptable regimen. I always tell patients to make sure that they go in to their doctor for a followup "test of cure". Please provide a positive rating for this answer.
