    Hi Tony! I have never taken doxy and am allergic to AZ. I take Levaquin 750 for 3 weeks. 7 days seems like a very short course. I even took a 4 week course once. I would never have improvement that quickly. I have BX, asthma and pseudamonas. Best of luck to you😊

    Hiya Tony,

    I have been on Azithromycin now for 1 year and it has really controlled all the basic problems that BX has given me so i hope you will see a big change by taking it as prescibed which is 3 times a week,but it seems that what i have been reading on this forum that some people only get a 7 day course which most be for a bad infection which it will kill,but being on it as long as I have and others also on this site

    had made a big change,but as always there are pros & cons on this site.

    I return to the states next week so I Plan to ask my doctor again about using it long term,but you will see a change for the better as you take it.

    Best,

    Charlie

      Hi Tony. 7 days antibiotic is a waste of time. You need 14 days plus prednisone (steroid). I sometimes feel as though doctors are saving their budget or fobbing us off

    Hi Tony   

    Have they taken a sample of your sputum   to grow and get of culture from it ?h

    The lab then idenfies the bug  and see what antibiotic will kill it off    

    Its a bit & miss
