I am 19w and have been on amoxicillin for 7 days now. It doesn't seem to be kicking the infection. I'm still coughing and sneezing, and now wheezing. I have a lot of build up in my chest and wonder, given the limited drugs I'm allowed, what is the next step? Can I develop a bronchial infection or pneumonia?
Hi! If you were my patient, I would want to see you in again. The wheezing is worriesome. I don't know if you have a history of asthma, but I would want to listen to your lungs and possibly get a chest xray, depending upon the results. I would also consider prescribing an inhaler to help with air movement. Hope you feel better! Dr B
