It Was Fun While It Lasted On CLARITHROMYCIN 500mg For Next Ten Days

After Intermittent Feeling Like A Cow Pat Over Last Two Nights ... Went And Seen My Lung Doc And Cut Strait To The Chace And Told Him Feel Like Am Going To Drop Dead :O

Now I Did't Know If It Was Hypertonic Saline That Was Making Me Feel Dodgy Or Battle Of Chest Infections Stress Or Heat So I Conceded :P

After A Load Of Green Mucus Popped Out Of My Nose ..... So Am Taking Good Stuff CLARITHROMYCIN 500mg For Next Ten Days But Not Happy About Possible Side Effects :(

So Decided To Convince Myself That Its Only If You Take High Dose Side Effects Will Affect Me :O

Currently Am Feeling Better But Am Well Hungary Thats Defo CLARITHROMYCIN 500mg Doing That .... And Looks Like Hypertonic Saline Is Finally Working And Am Still Taking My B12 Every Other Day And As Expected My Inhalers :)

But Am Feel Tad Better :)

Glad you are feeling a bit better Daz but one thing puzzles me. What does a cow pat feel like?


A Don't No A Assume Pretty Bad .... Like Libbygood Says All Trodden On But Do Tel My Lung Doc

Thanks Cheers :)

Hi Daz

Hope the Clarith kicks those bugs into touch and you feel much better very soon. Also glad the hypertonic is helping to shift the gunk.

I am on hypertonic pretty constantly, and although I have heard of lungs washed out during bronchoscopy, I have never heard of lungs being washed out because of using hypertonic.

Knitter - Yes hypertonic is similar to your 0.9 but in a much higher strength 3%, 7% etc. and both are nebulised. A consultant would decide if hypertonic is necessary - it is often used in cf and npn cf bronchiectasis. Cons would usually arrange for a patient to be assessed at the hospital, where you neb a bronchodilator, followed by the hypertonic. as hypertonic doesn't suit everyone.

Get well soon our Daz.

Love cx

Cheers Cofdrop :)

To Be Honest Could Do With Them Washing Out .... But Would Be Reluctant As Thats Like Bush Blair Did :)

Get well soon Daz. Pete takes same antibiotics as you when he has a bad chest/flare up and they are very good on the whole so keep going. Good wishes to you. xxxx

Cheers They Must Be Doing Something .... Its Not Like I Have All Day But Yes Its Clearing It You Just Feel Tad ill When Start Antibiotics

But Have More Energy ... But Do Need To Rest

Cheers Thanks :)

Hope you are feeling much much better soon Daz
