Puffer...

Does anyone else have one? I just got one because I had a cold for two weeks and some days, first they gave me amoxicillian antibiotic which didn't work. So I went back because I've been having shortness of breath, and he said "Wow" and gave me PMS-Clarithromycin. That's two pills a day plus the puffer he just gave me.. which I haven't had since I was really small and can't remember.

But now I feel sick to my stomach (even though I eat before taking the antibiotic pills) and I woke up kind of sweating this morning three hours ago.

Remember to eat plenty of natural yoghurt to replace the good bacteria that the anibiotics will kill (they are indiscriminate and kill ALL bacteria), that may help with the sickness.

Its also good for you to sit in the bathroom with a steamy shower goin. When babies and children are sick they suggest it to loosen mucus but it works on us big uns too! Feel better!

what they both said.

with a puffer its very important to use proper breathing tech. I am asthmatic and I use puffers when I get sick.

You have to take a deep breath in hold it for 5 sec then release, then take your puffer and place it near your mouth, now breath in and press the puffer at the same time, hold(count to 10) then release

I've never had to have one, I was going to say about a good old steamy shower helping with colds. Also if you drink tea (maybe you can do it to coffee too?) instead of sugar (if you have sugar) I put in usually a tea spoon of honey... it helps any sore throat you (may) have...
