I have Churg Strauss, currently treated with Rituximab, 5mg Prednisilone, Following a fungal infection in my lungs last winter which had to be treated with very strong antibiotics I am still taking a low dose full time. This inevitably has side effects, noticeably with stomach probs, rushing to the loo etc. When I brought this up with my consultant last time I saw him he says I have to remain on antibiotics indefinitely, which was a surprise. Anyone had experiences of this? I can't think being on antibiotics long term is good for my system and surely they will lose their effect after a while as my body gets used to them.....??
