Hi,Watch out for XXXXX

Welcome to HCM,

You can take Azithral 500 mg daily and not on alternate day for not more than 3-4 days.

You can take capsule Doxycycline once a day for 10-15 days instead of Azithral.

Ok and bye.

Azithromycin is a sage drug and usually is not associated with serious side effects.
The one which is commonly encountered is loose stools.
If you have it take lots of curd and Tablet Providac and call your doctor.

Take Care
