  • Antibiotics are usually very general and will kill all infections they come up against. Good luck with the chlamydia.

  • The dr. gave him the prescription as well, as a precaution. If he DID catch it, and then took the antibiotics, he should be fine. Anytime you are nervous like this, feel free to call your Dr. and ask- it wont be the first time they've heard something like this.

  • Yes it's fine the MG was different. It has more to do with age and weight, but yeah b/c he's smaller. He should be fine if he's got an antibiotic.
