Two & a half weeks ago, I started coughing up greenish phlegm. I thought it was a bacterial infection. So I took a Z-pack. After 5 days, when the Z-pack was gone, I didn't feel any better, & was still coughing up green phlegm. I went to the Dr. She said that I was probably resistent to the Z-pack, & gave me a 10-day dose of Amox. -- the generic of Augmentin. After 6 days of being on it, the green phlegm changed to a white color. So I thought I was finally getter better. But then after finishing the medicine, after the 10 days, I was still coughing up white phlegm all day. And I don't feel well at all. I have no energy. And I just feel like something isn't quite right. I went to the Dr. again. He said that it probably wasn't a bacterial infection in the first place -- but rather a viral infection. He did do a chest ex-ray to check for Pneumonia. But there is no Pneumonia. So he said there was nothing else we could do. It just has to get better on it's own. But I'm not so sure he is right. I am so tired of coughing up phlegm, I don't feel good, & I'm real run down. Any ideas anyone?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
