Your doctor is quite correct about too much of the Levaquin. Your body will built up an immunity to it after while. Doxycycline is a good sub for it.

Heavy Nosebleeds And Nasal Congestion

Heavy Nosebleeds And Nasal Congestion

Diagnosed with severe COPD. NOT ON OXYGEN
Every morning I wake up my nose is blocked similar to hay fever. Then the mucus runs down my throat and I have to cough it up. Usually clear but sometimes thick and green
It has been called post nasal drip or rhinitis and I have a nasal spray which does not help. After an hour or so it more or less stops for the rest of the day but sometimes comes back and it feels like it is triggered by an allergy?

Use Of Steriods And Antibiotics

Use Of Steriods And Antibiotics

My doctor prescribed prednisone (sp) and Zithromax (sp) to be taken when I feel a cold or flu coming on. I have used them a couple of times and it seems to help, but who knows since I might have gotten better anyway.

I would appreciate hearing from others about their experiences with the drugs. I suspect they should not be used very often.

Thanks

Steroids

Steroids

I look after my mum who has COPD. She's had a couple of flare ups. The doctors are reluctant to give her steroids and always wait until she is seriously ill, it's disgusting. Is there anything she can use as an alternative to steroids. I tried to buy some in the UK but want to buy them somewhere safe.
