Hello, I wonder if anyone else has this experience. I have had a chest infection on and off since Christmas. Sputum results showed staff or strep (can't remember) but it is the bug that is normally treated with Doxycycline or Clairythromycin. Unfortunately I throw up with the former and when I tried the latter in January I got the lightheaded/dizzy symptoms etc and the doctor told me to stop taking them immediately. He gave me two weeks of ofloxacin which worked for a bit but gradually my lungs got worse. So far I have had three lots of ofloxacin this year and finishing the third lot today (no doctor's visits or sputum samples due to Covid). I exercise vigorously and do chest clearance three times a day. One of the nurse practitioners said they were the only antibiotics that would work for me.
So couple of questions: does that mean I shall just gradually succumb to the infection and die or are there other antibiotics I could take?
Plus use Qvar inhaler and gargle after inhalation as it can lead to thrush in the throat which I had once - is this the same bug and if so should I keep using the inhaler or is it different once it goes in our lungs?
Thank you and hope everyone is doing well
