I have bronchiectasis and rheumatoid arthritis therefore have several chest infections due to heamophilus influenzae which are difficult to treat. I am usually given amoxycillin or doxycycline but neither seems to help very much. I know l have to live with the bug and have been doing well until l moved and had to change my doctors who all knew me very well. I wonder if anyone has difficulty accessing stronger, better antibiotics than the ones l mention. My doctor is now aware that l need 2 weeks treatment but as soon as l complete the course l begin to feel ill again after a couple of weeks. Does anyone have the same problem as advice would be most welcome.
