I have had asthma all my life with whooping cough as a child and had regular chest infections with probably pneumonia. I was diagonosed with Chronic Bronchitis by GP and then Bronchiectasis by Consultant 2 years ago after having a CT scan. I am fairly active and do daily physio on my own to help keep my lungs clear but phlegm is generally coloured. After having several lots of antibiotics recently my consultant has prescribed antibiotics (Azithromycin 250mg) as a prophylaxis to take 1 x 3 times a week. I'm not sure if I am ready for this and would like to hear from anyone who has taken antibiotics for chest complaints on a regular basis and what side effects or downsides there are to this. Thanks.
