is bronchitis contagious?Added 21 Jan 2015:
I got bronchitis a year ago after visiting a friend, and we were outside a lot in cold weather. I have an alergy to septra, and we were sipping white wine, and suddenly it took me almost a minute to inhale for a breath. I asked MD if I should carry a rubber tube with me if it happens again. Have you heard of people needing to do this when their windpipe suddenly shuts like this? It has happened to me a few times, but not since last year. Scary! but I didn't panic and hoped I would be able to take in a breath soon.
Yes it is a strong dose, if it doesn't start getting better in 72 hours call your Doctor and let him or her know what is going on, was that all he gave you ?
Its the standard dose of augmentin (the brand name). Different antibiotics are indicated for different infections so for respiratory infections augmentin is one of the best. Don't expect miracles. Antibiotics don't cure symptoms they kill bacteria. Once the bacteria is gone the symptoms can go away. It can take 5-7 days to feel back to pre infection time.
