My Consultant suggested I take an antibiotic every other day to hopefully control amount of chest infections. I do not have a chest infection at the moment so really don't want to take antibiotics. I would have to take them every other day for ever . Does anyone take an antibiotic every other day .I have severe COPD. Also although I manage my condition well lately I am having Panic Attacks. I am not depressed and not a worrier but I suffer health anxiety apparently. This makes me over think things. He suggested a very low dose of Valium. This scares me as I do not have depression and don't want to be on a drug that can be addictive. He says it's a very low dose. I have time to decide about the antibiotic and valium so would like any advice before deciding. I get over the panic attack by controlling my breathing but it would be great if I didn't get them in the first place.
