just got home from asthma nurse. Had a cold for 3 weeks with it going on my chest 10 days ago but because sputum wasn't green I didn't bother apart from increasing inhalers. Had a few asthma attacks and sleepless nights and was only left with shortness if breath,coughing and little wheeze.
Well my nurse listened to my chest and said it sounded bad so I'm on 40mg pred for 7 days but she also gave me antibiotics 500mg! I thought antibiotics where only given for a bacterial infection?! How come I have to take those when sputum is only yellow? Or did my nurse just want to be on the safe side?
Also having to take blue, brown and seretide inhaler so just thought it's a bit much?
