i have pneumonia and the e.r. gave an antibiotic through my i.v. but sent me home with azithromycin. the next morning i was feeling better but the next day i started coughing blood again and my fever spiked again and the lymph nodes in my throat are swelling like one of those frogs AGAIN. my temperature at the hospital was 105.6 and it's not that high yet but what should i ask for so i can start to feel better? i only have 2 doses of azithromycin left and i don't think it's working. it's the 250mg tablets
If you still have a fever its not working. With a temp that high, I wonder if its viral, in which case antibiotics would do nothing. I'd go back to the er, let them know what I was on, and let them do their job.
