Thank you for responding. I am not a medication taker so hearing this made me feel better. I have to check with my insurance but I definitely will check into the Mayo Clinic.

I was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis about a month ago after 15 years of clearing my throat and bringing up sputum and being told it is just post nasal drip no worries. I was put on Amoxicillin for 14 days and Everything has gone away. No more clearing throat, cough, sputum, chest tightness. However I was waiting to see my dr for follow up to let him know that I still had a full pain when deep inhaling on left side. He called me yesterday to tell me that they discovered MAC and he is referring me to an infectious disease specialist and I will be on antibiotics for 6 months to a year. At first I thought no biggie until I read all the horror stories. I have none of the symptoms of MAC. No cough, fever, have never experienced fatigue, no diarrhea, no weight loss, I love food and very much enjoy eating, no night sweats, chills. I don’t get it. Your post made me feel better about the meds and side effects. When I was researching I thought if I am not experiencing any ill effects then why do I want to take something that will make me ill.
