Levaquin....... dum dum dum
I got a sinus infection Sunday night, started antibiotics Monday (z-pac). My symptoms usually reslove by the second day. It's Friday and the infection has now spread to my chest and only gotten worse. I called my PCP and he decided he wanted:
-up the prednisone from 5 mg to 10 mg
-up my use of my steriod inhaler from 2 puffs 2x daily to 2 puffs 4x daily
I am rushing to the imaging center before they close... I wonder why he wanted this x-ray so bad.. Can you really see bronchitis on an x-ray??
