Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum, only joined last weekend. Anyway, been suffering from another chest infection, so doc put me on steroids for 5 days (first time ever) as my oxygen levels were extremely low, also Amoxicillin 500mg and told me to use blue inhaler up to four times a day. My breathing is much much better but still have the cough. I do smoke, but am desperately trying to cut them out altogether. Tried Champrax last year, but to no avail. They made me feel constantly sick, spaced out, nightmares and depressed. My doctor told me that I can't have the test until my chest is clear, but I'm still coughing and have finished steroids and only one more day on Amoxicillin left. My question is, should I return to doctor for my antibiotics if cough doesn't clear, or just book the Spirometry test with the nurse?
