I have had the flu for three weeks. Called after hours

Customer Question

I have had the flu for three weeks. Called after hours Doctor last Friday, he prescribed Roxithromycin 300mg. He said I had a flu but also sinus infection. I have taken three tablets to date and while my head has cleared, I am having trouble breathing, and waking up with cold sweats, having to change my nightwear and bedding each time. Should I keep taking this medication?

You should go to the ER

This can be pneumonia.

That can be serious and might need hospital admission.
