Hi there ,
Please can someone advise me if they know of any tablets I could take to take down my glands . Six weeks ago I took Pleurisy caused by bacterial infection therefore no antibiotic was given to me until the fifth week as my glands had swollen more . I saw my GP a local who prescribed Doxycycline for seven days twice a day - my glands began to swell worse and face was swollen too I felt so unwell and weak . I rang my GP surgery told my doctor of my symptoms and asked if it could be the antibiotic and he said no that it was still the infection and to persevere with the antibiotic give it nine days . I asked if I could make an appointment and doc said no need and to ring after the nine days rather than calling to see them . Over three days my glands swoll a considerable amount and my throats was so sore especially the goitre area . I saw my consultant last Friday who was not impressed as he said my GP should have known it was a reaction and should have asked me to come down to see them . My consultant gave me soluble aspirin to gargle . My glands are still swollen still feel weak just so exhausted . Please can anyone tell me if there's anything I can take such as antihistamine ?
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for your advice I really appreciate it as I would be lost without all your help
