Doctor placed me on a strong Antibiotic

Well my lupus is acting up but needed labs done and won’t know the results this week. Xrays showed my COPD is getting worse. This time instead of it being my asthma acting up it’s the Emphysema acting up. Raised my Symbicort from 80 to 160 dosage. Put me on Hydrocodone cough syrup with the decongestant and placed me on Amox/K Clav 500 Antibiotic 3 times a day and have me back to see him next week. Taking the prednisone already at a high dose so he did not want to raise that. Wants me to stay on the Abuterol Sulfate Nebulizer 4 times a day using 1 vial each instead of the 3 times a day regimin and is still keeping me on the Abuterol Inhaler at the same rate. So hopefully this will kick this respiratory stuff in the bud until my next bout of it! Each summer it seems this crap alway’s gets me.
While I was at Walmart getting my RX’s filled I bought the DVD The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with Brad Pitt. Hope it’s a good movie! Going to watch that tonight!
