I have not had any fever but have had a cold for the past month. It is in my lower left lung. I'm a heavy smoker and drinker, and haven't stopped even since I have had my diagnosis. I'm prescribed z-pak and haven't taken it yet because for some reason I am not fond of the possible side effects mainly triggered from my anxiety. It has been four days since I have been diagnosed and have been smoking and drinking. I am going to take the medication tomorrow because I haven't gone to bed from my adderall keeping me up and I feel like hell from the adderall crash. I'm going to start it tomorrow. Am i a putting myself at a dangerous risk? The doctor said the pneumonia is not serious at all right now. But obviously it can get serious.
You need to take your antibiotics and try to at least slow down on the smoking and drinking or better yet, quit. Pneumonia can be fatal if left untreated. You are going to wind up in the hospital needing IV antibiotics if you are not careful and dont start taking better care of yourself. Side effects from antibiotics are a lot less of a problem than letting pneumonia go unchecked. You are playing with fire!
