I am a late onset sufferer. Put up with it for a year, suffering chronic coughing/ phlegm/ / wheezing sinus trouble. One year after diagnosis i had enough. Researched online. Got azythromycin. Took 500mgx3 days , then 750mg 1x weekly as advised on some sites. after 2 weeks i stopped using the steroid inhaler, the node spray and the singulair. The wheezing is reduced by 95%; coughing almost completely gone, sinus much clearer. They say it can take 12 - 18 weeks to completely clear. The question i am asking is, why was I allowed to suffer for a year by the medical experts and spend a load of money on ineffective treatments when this option could have been available to me? ANYONE presenting with these symptoms should be treated with Azithromycin. Not to try it is a deriliction of duty on the part of doctors. And yes, i am angry! Apparently this treatment will be effective for 50 % or more patients. A ratio too good to ignore!
