Azithromycin has an elimination half-life of 68 hours so you get a lot of overlap there, especially since you are taking the drugs daily. Some doctors say Rifampin may not even be necessary, certainly less so than the other 2. IMO just skip today's dose.

I am planning a trip in May. Hoping to skip one day of "big 3 antibiotics" in the middle. I don't sleep as well on days I have to take antibiotics. 6 months, 3x a week, by that point. Has anyone done this without repercussions?
