1 month ago I started getting a slight cough. Got worse so went to the Doc. He thought that it cold be whooping cough. Gave me a 5 day Zpac. By day 5 I was running 101 temp, had completely lost voice and felt awful. Back to Doc. Said bronchitis....verge of pneumonia. Gave 10 days Levaquin still coughing! Tussionex doesnt help, albuterol doesnt help. totally miserable. Went to pulmonologist. HE thinks it is all asthma related. (NEVER had this happen before) Started me on 10 days of prednisone...boy I really hate that. 40mgs 4days, 30 3days, 20 2days 10 1 day. Now on day 4 and STILL coughing. REALLY BAD. Have pulled muscles in my ribs and have thrown up numberous times from coughing til I gag. Well at least I wont have to worry about
prednisone weight gain...I cant keep much down! I am really starting to worry that this could be some type of allergy to Byetta since it started 4-6 weeks after starting. Called Byetta help line...no help at all...said to "ask my doctor"
Doctor hasnt got a clue...never heard of anything like this before...which would be so typical for me!
I have posted questions in a few different places regarding this situation and sorry to keep asking but I am freaking out here and in alot of pain. Anybody ever heard of anything like this with byetta or any other meds? I also take 2000 metformin, 4mg avandia, 20mg benicar and 20/10 vytorin. Thanks for any input!!
