Suprax and Zmax compatability

It appears that a single oral dose of 400mg Suprax is effective in treating Gonorrhea and that treatment for Chlamydia is advised at the same time as these infections tend to be present at the same time. From what I've read, a single oral dose of 1g Zmax could be used to treat Chlamydia. When taking these antibiotics should they taken at the same time or should one course be taken before another to prevent interactions?

No, you can take those at the same time if you have a diagnosis of one of them.  If you have no diagnosis, you shouldn't take the meds.

Taking meds for something you aren't sure you have creates resistance to the medications, and we already have very few meds that work for gonorrhea.  Suprax is on the list of the meds that gonorrhea might be resistant to already.
