Hello all. Hope you are all keeping well in this cold weather. So it has been 8 months since my Mum was diagnosed with COPD. She has been doing well up until now
She hasn't suffered much with a cough but back in October she got a lung infection and the cough has been very persistent ever since. She had an X-ray but that came back normal but with changes. She then had to start on her 'standby' antibiotics and steroids last week because of another infection. She rang to see her doctor but couldn't get an appointment until 3rd of December!! To cut a long story short she managed to see him today and he isn't happy with the way things are going and has prescribed her with 10 days of Azithromycin and more steroids.
Has anyone else had these antibiotics?
She sees the consultant in December after the hospital lost her referral letter twice!! (the doctor referred her in April!
Some feedback on this antibiotic would be great please and whether it helped at all. Also has anyone got any tips or help with easing her cough at all? It is making her whole body ache Wish I could take it away from her.
