I was born with asthma and now 50 years down the line it turned to chronic bronchial asthma or COPD. Chest infections every month followed by antibiotics every month. Felt better when on the antibiotics but after the course finished it was coming back again. 5ml of prednisolone every day for 30 years. The local Doctors had a meeting and decided i could have an antibiotic tablet (new one called Azithromycin) one tablet only three times per week.
Started this three months ago and since then have had a massive improvement to my life in every way. No chest infections, sleeping much better, getting around fine. Roll on 2016! things are looking up at long last.
