I've been on azithromycin for 18 months for bronchiectasis and allergic asthma. Consultant suggested I try giving it a break for a couple of months then starting it again. 10 days into this break I've got a hideous cold and feel wheezy. Really tempted just to get straight back on it again as I don't want a chest infection. Or should I stick it out? Does anyone have any advice for coming off long term abs? I'm worried my immune system can't cope without them now.
