  • sorry :( be thankful the antibiotics are (presumably) working at least. a failure would result in IV options requiring you to rot in a hospital bed. yuck. feel better soon!!

  • What antibiotics did they give you? I just had it and the doc told me that there were three options, the first one I don;t remember the name is cheap, but doesn't always do the job. The second one was called Z pack, and was more expensive. He said that in the last few years it has started to have a higher fail rate. The third option was $176 for the 10 day course of Levaquin and it works.

    I chose the Levaquin and was feeling 100 times better day 4 of taking them.
