Do you do any airway clearance to keep from mucus building up in your lungs? Like an Acapela or Aerobika device after the neb?

And have they checked your sputum to see exactly what is infecting you?

Overuse of antibiotics, especially the seemingly innocuous ZPak, is causing more antibiotic resistant organisms. This is why docs are becoming more reluctant to prescribing them without knowing exactly what is going on in your body.

Both of my daughters, my sister, several friends and nieces are nurses, so this has been a frequent topic of conversation in our house for many years.

Recently my grandson had positive strep, but the pediatrician only gave him one high dose penicillin shot and no oral antibiotics, and he recovered fine.
