Clarithromycin & Prednisolone side effects

I've had asthma all my adult life. When I get a lung infection it gets much worse than a 'non-asthmatic'. I've recently had an infection & first took Amoxicillan (didn't work) so I was put on a course of prednisolone and Clarithromycin. It's loosened my lungs but I'm having some terrible wheezing & coughing attacks so I feel I can't get another breath and am having panic attacks? Should I go back to docs or does it take some time after completing the course for it to work?

Go back to GP tomorrow as it may be that the infection has not been cleared properly. You mayd another course of steroids to help your lungs recover.
