clarithromycin and infection...

I was just curious, I have a buddy that mentioned that he had been having some urinary symptoms such as minor burning, the dosent happen every time he urinates, clear discharge in small amounts, and some minor soreness in the urethra.  Im not to sure whether its a uti, or maybe an std.  He had some left over clarithromycin 500 mg about 10 days worth and he began taking that.  I told him he should just get tested but he dosent have insurance currently and is unemployed.  He said even if I have an std clarithromycin should clear it up its a very strong anti-bacterial antibiotic.  Is this true?

We don't recommend self medication and we don't give out medication advice. He should see a Dr.

no that isn't an appropriate antibiotic for what this has the best chances of being. He can call his local health department to see where his closest low cost/no cost clinic is and follow up properly on his symptoms.
