dr gave me antibiotics which i started friday and steroids which I started Saturday. Since then I've felt worse everyday and tonight I thought I felt better but Ive been trying to get to sleep since 12 but im just coughing my guts up keeping taking my reliver inhaler but not helping. do I wait another day or go back to my gps do u think? Although I dont know what else he can do

I've heard doctors say that if the antibiotics don't start to meme you feel better after 48 hours, you should go back to the GP as they may not be strong enough.

Sorry you're feeling so rotten. Are you well enough to manage until morning? Chest infection plus asthma sounds pretty horrid.

Yes I second the 48 hour thing. Hope you get it sorted and get some much needed rest soon.
