Since the first week of October until today I have had three courses of antibiotics - two 5-day courses of Levaquin and one 10 - day course of Clarythromiacn (sp) of which I took the last one today.
I have also been on Prednisone - varying strenghts - for pretty much the entire time.
I have seasonal asthma which began in 1994 when I had mycoplasma pneumonia. I got better after one year but in the last four years i have either come down with bronchitis or pneumonia every fall.
I am a chronic pain patient and have been on hydrocodone for over five years. I have spoken to my doctor of my desire to wean off this medication and had it planned to end next month.
I have been on antiobiotics off and on most of my life. I do feel my body may be overrun by candida. Not sure of course.
I believe that is all.
So sorry but forgot to mention I have been sucking on the troches for over three days. It wasn't until today I realized they were not working.
Since I had never had shortness of breath last time I had this it has taken me by surprise. Not being able to sleep going on two nights now is wearing me down but I understand the necessity of waiting for 24 hours which will be in approximately 8 hours.
May I ask if it is sometimes necessary to take more than one 3-day course of Fluconazole? Thank you.
Thank you. My mind is quite muddled. I also forgot to mention that this is actually the third time I have had this. I was prescribed a 3 day course (first day 150 mg. subsequent two days 150 mg) JUST ONE WEEK AGO. It seemed to get better until yesterday. I think it has never fully gone away - and I wasn't given enough medicine.
I will go to the ER as you suggest. I will try and explain all of the details I had forgotten to tell you. Just so sleep deprived...
