    Hi Dot,

    I live in Australia and I just joined this website. Your post sounds very interesting and I would love to know more about the AZITHROMCIN. Is it an antibiotic? 

    A year later, is your condition still as good as when you did this post? ie no sputem? 

    Regards,

    Littlewolf

      Hi Littlewolf,

      Welcome to the forum! I have been on AZITHROMYCIN 250 MG CAPS also, and they are an antibiotic. At the moment I am giving them a rest, but I have them in stock as for my 'bugs' they are effective. A sputum test is always advisable as the bugs can change. I have CARBOCISTIENE to thin the sputum which helps to lift it. Both on perscription. Let me know how you get on...

      Blessings,

      Lesley

      Hello Lesley,

      Thank you for that feedback- I will see if I can get the Carbocistiene here.

      With regard to 'dots'post , I read it as she was taking it all the time and it was making a big difference. I havnt heard back from her as to weather she is still taking it daily, a year on.

      Cheers

      ...just a thought, littlewolf...they can cause tiredness and nausea in some people, so stop them if you have problems...
