    Yes, antibiotics can knock the stuffing out of anyone, especially those of us who have bronchiectasis and/plus other lung conditions.

    We can often feel tired even when we aren't on antibiotics or oralsteroids such as prednisolone.

    Look after yourself, I hope you feel better soon.

      thank you chriselora  I have had broncheactesis for the past 10 years and have never felt so tired as I am now.  Perhaps the weather has something to do with it.   London is very hot and humid just now.  I'm the type that bounces back so hopefully I will soon

    Hi Marion

    I have just finished a course of the dreaded, (but much needed), antibiotics for a sinus infection and it has completely wiped me out.  Unfortunately they do take a while to get over and tiredness is a side-effect.   

    Hope you feel better soon x

      thank you Trish,  its a long time since I had antibiotics and prednisolone so perhaps it is due to medication apart from the horrible weather in london at the moment  very hit and humid

      Thank you Kathleen  for your advice, actually a friend said the same about having a nap in the afternoon which I never no.  So I am going to give that a go.

    hi Marion, yes I too feel exhausted most days, infection or not, it  is a tremendous struggle to do some work some days, when I sit down I could instantly sleep. I dream of some magic potion/tonic that a few slurps of which would have me doing cartwheels in my kilt cheesygrin

    Sometimes I feel exhausted Marion.   Completely exhausted. From everything I've read on this forum it's part  of our Bronchiectasis.  I just make myself rest,   even though I have things that have to get done.  Stay well.

      Thank you Joyce,  Its good to know that its because of the broncheactesis

      I am tired.  Today I seem to have bounced back.  A nap in the afternoon does seem to help.  I am a late sleeper, therefore I wake late in the morning and feel quite groggy.  The last two nights I have gone to bed just half an hour earlier and that seems to help me wake earlier .  So having changed my sleeping pattern  seems to have helped.  Hope it lasts
