Is Anyone On A Daily Antibiotic For Flare Ups

Is Anyone On A Daily Antibiotic For Flare Ups

A MyCOPDTeam Member said:

When people have multiple exacerbations in a year and hospitalizations, too, many pulmonologists consider prescribing one of two meds: roflumilast (Daliresp) or azithromycin three times a week; sometimes every day. Both meds have been clinically proven to reduce exacerbations and hospitalizations. Both are used for their anti-inflammatory properties, so the fact that azithromycin is an antibiotic isn't why it's used. So yes, being prescribed azithromycin either three times a week or every day is a perfectly acceptable treatment and much needed for some people.
