Hi guys, went to see my consultant yesterday. I have been suffering from ringing in the ears for the past 3 months and I was really worried he would stop me taking the Azithromycin. I needn't have worried, he said I am on the Azithromycin for life and he is not convinced the Azithromycin is the cause of my hearing problem as it began after a infection in my sinuses. He is writing to my GP to ask her to refer me to ENT. What a relief, I had visions of being ill every month again. He also picked up on the high dosage aspirin I am taking, and said it was no longer recommended as a treatment for AF and that there are better ways of protecting my heart, such as Warfarin, the cardiologists no longer recommend aspirin aparently. Not really sure I am happy about Warfarin, all that taking of blood etc. But hey ho, we must do as we are told. Whilst we were talking I mentioned I did not have any steriods in my emergency meds pack and as I am travelling to Spain on Sunday I wondered if he thought my GP should prescribe them? He was adamant I should always have steroids in my emergency meds pack and should phone my GP for a script. I am feeling much better and don't have to return to the consultant for 12 months. Great news. Maximonkey
