The doctor phoned me back today, I took the last steroid today but still had Saturday and Sundays Antibiotics to take but he told me to stop them and he's given me another Antibiotic to take instead and will see how I am over the weekend. He said it's the underlying infection that is the problem.
I was on Amoxicillin 500mg 1 x 3 times a day. He's changed me to Clarie XL 500mg Prolonged Release Tablets Clarithromycin 1 a day.
