Can someone help me figure out what is going on with my lungs? After I was diagnosed the respirologist gave me azithromycin every second day for two months. After about 6 weeks the coughing went away (including the coughing at night). But when it ran out the coughing came back again. Awhile later my family doctor prescribed me azithromycin and the same thing happened, after 6 or 7 weeks the coughing stopped. Then the respirologist switched me to doxycycline and after a week on that the coughing started up again. So I just switched back to azithromycin. I guess I have a chronic infection that is only responsive to azithromycin? The thing is that the respirologist told me I can't stay on it, he said I might go antibiotic resistant. I can't stand the coughing at night, I am on day shift at work and never get enough sleep when I wake up coughing all the time. The respirologist said if I want to see him again in 6 months to get another referral from my doctor. I am going to try to get a referral to the Lung Centre in the city, maybe they can try to figure out what is going on.
