Thank you very much. Wow, you are free from pseudomanas with Azithromycin? Was your psuedomonas chronically showed up in your culture and what load may I ask? May I know your dose? My doctor is considering giving it as a preventive measure. Many patients in Europe use it 3 days a week as well.

No my pseudomonas is probably not gone. Have not had sputum checked lately but it is in a quiet phase. It only showed up last November with high amounts, colonized. May have been there for a long time before because I did not have it checked. My dose is 250 mg three times a week. I think the suggestion is that I go off it after one year which will be this December. One pulmonary doctor said he advised 6 months on during the worst times for you and 6 months off (like over the spring summer period). So I expect to stop it in December/January and resume the following fall. I also do 3% sodium chloride.
