I am currently on an antibiotic treatment for C. pnemonia and was wondering how effective it is and what side effects to expect. I am rather nauseous at times and feel drained of energy... was wondering if it's the antibiotics or the bug.

Hi Laura,

I'm sorry to hear you're ill. Of course, I can't give you medical advice. Perhaps an internet search on your antibiotic would be helpful, and your pharmacist and doctor should know the answer to your question. I hope you feel better soon!



I am 50 years old and currently on an antibiotic for "atypical pneumonia". The first ER doc put me on Zithromax but upon my return for a severe migrane the second ER doc put me on Leviquin. Is a sputum culture needed to pick the best antibiotic? Thanks, Mary PS-curiously, my mother had pneumonia at 50 and developed moderate dimentia by 68yrs old.

I'm sorry to hear about your illness. I'm not qualified to answer your question, but perhaps another reader can help...

I hope you are feeling better soon.
