I was wondering if any of you guys are on long term antibiotics with regards to your asthma/recurrent chest infections??
My daughter is 4, is on a multitude of inhalers/meds, saline nebs, physio and has also been on maintenance pred for the last 20months. She still has regular infections. She had double pneumonia in Dec and was very poorly, requiring IV's and oxygen. She has just finished another course of azithromycin for yet another chest infection.
She regularly complains of pain in her chest and lower ribs. I'm just wondering if long term antibiotics are the way to go?? We tried them a couple of yrs ago and it gave her an upset tum but we now use diff antibiotics (with no side effects) for the usual courses so wondering if we should be trying those as a long term lower dose alternative??
Does anyone else take them and are they helpful??
