Re: Bad chest conjestion.

Only 6 antibiotic tablets? They must be potent ones then.
The medicine the doctors given you is good to help clear up your lungs but I would continue applying Vick’s vapour rub on your chest especially at night before going to bed. It will help break the phlegm up in your lungs. It’s got camphor oil and menthol in it which are natural oils that are very beneficial for helping to breath better. They will also help you to breathe deeper. If you start having panic attacks the first thing you should always do is take deep long breaths.

Remember to take some probiotics once you are finished your antibiotics to replenish the good bacteria in your system.
Lemon and honey is very healing and I know you have the ingredients.
It will help strengthen your immune system which is what you need right now.
Trust me!

Wishing you the best

Today I picked up the 2 new meds. An anti biotic, 6 tablets only, and a steroid, 10 tablets only. I don't know what the heck they think so few tablets are going to accomplish.

Makes me so angry that I am not getting the care I need. I know damn well that if I was a famous celebrity they'd get me well double-quick.

Last night I bought some Valium in Mexico and the panic attacks stopped dead in their tracks (Dr Rx not needed).

In addition to everything else, I have just started breathing in Hot salt water mixed with Vicks Vapo-Rub.

I have come to the conclusion that , basically, I'm on my own

The number of pills is irrelevant, It's the content and dosage that matters.
I suggest you research the name, and go easy on the Valium!

Re: Bad chest conjestion.

New meds. Azithromycin 250/mg/day.. 6 tabs only

Prednisone . 20 mg tablets … 10 tablets only. 2 /day


This is the beginning of the 2md day on these meds.

have been taking Combivent* Respimat as an inhalation thearpy every. 6 hrs.

doing hot salt water with vapo rub as an inhaler.

1 to 2 tabets of clonaxepam/day. 1 mg/tab. Does not work at all. Anti-panic med. It used to work, but no longer.

deep breathing, (without meds )does no good at all.

I suspect the Drs know exactly what is wrong with me , but do not want to tell me that I am dying., because I am old.

within the last 12 days: mild heart attack, bad chest congestion and clusters of panic attacks.

In addition to undiagnosable chronic diarrhea X 7 years

Re: Bad chest conjestion.

The amount of Azizthromycin would fit what I just saw online

infections, bacterial
[500 mg PO x1 on day 1, then 250 mg PO q24h x4 days

I suffered panic attacks during the menopause and the only thing that helped me was to distract my brain although using the paper bag over the mouth method did afford some. Funnily enough I did this a few times by going online reading about other people’s experiences . As this was sometimes late or during at night and I grew cold sitting there it was that that brought me to the realisation that I was no longer panicking ,just feeling cold .

I can feel it both physically and mentally.
I should not be this incredibly weak. Too tired to mop my whole floor. That is not normal. Even at 72 that is not normal.
Plus clusters of panic attacks are telling me something.

Stress will only increase the panic. Have you tried relaxation techniques? You are NOT old silly. Did you buy a panic alarm as I suggested?
You have lots of support on this forum.
Try and focus on positive things, my lovely friend.

I'm on Valium which I'm probably addicted to now as I no longer notice any effect. If I stopped taking them I'd soon notice.

I've been on them for panic attacks for about 2 years after the Mindfullness course and CBT didn't do any good. Even on the Valium I'm still slightly agoraphobic.

I’d say you’d not notice if you withdrew slowly depending on what strength you’re using .
